(Bryce Buchanan) Last week, in her MSNBC show, Deadline, Nicolle Wallace said “right wing media” like Fox are creating an “alternate reality” for their viewers.  Wallace said, “You now have a true, a true alternate reality[.] …  I mean, they are pumping flagrant lies into millions of viewers.  They’re interviewing lunatics.”  Wallace’s guest, Al Sharpton (of Tawana Brawley hoax fame), said, “We’re now in a nation where facts don’t matter.  You make up facts.  And not only do you have an alternative reality — how do you debate someone that is dealing with a totally fictitious premise?”
