The WSJ piece is an excellent analysis of the flaws in Ms. Gifford's reasoning (although to call it that may be stretching a point). It's also useful as a guide to analyzing similar emotion-laden articles. We'd do much better if we were able to point to specific logical fallacies in such articles, rather than just declaring that "They're all lying!"
