Unclear on the mission statement

Via Glenn I read this post at the foundry that ended with this line:

Facts matter, and we hope we’ve stated them clearly enough so that even Media Matters can’t deny them.

Earth to Heritage, there is no fact so damning that Media Matters can’t deny if it suits their agenda.

Are EXACTLY right on the school choice issue. Their segment on NY schools should be required watching for any person who opposes charter schools.

This is one of the few issues where the President is on the right side of. If he wants to recover and score a bi-partisan victory and so something that could really have a long term positive effect for the nation in general and for the black community in particular this is it.

For more on the subject check here here and here.

Update: A reader reminds me that although the president has said the right thing when he had the chance to support school choice in DC he didn’t bother. I can’t believe I forgot that after all I wrote about it on New Years Day and I was sober.
