The Fact or Fiction Challenge of 2007

The good burghers at Media Bloodhound have put together a roundup of quotes and headlines culled from this past year and challenge readers to distinguish fact from the fiction.

Some examples:
"The real danger here for Democrats is looking overly beholden to the rule of law." - NBC's Tim Russert

"Some will say Tom Vilsack never had a chance. But Tom Vilsack was the first to drop out of this race. Number one. And no one can ever take that milestone away from him." - Hillary Clinton

"The law’s no barrier to this patriot. And I have every confidence the attorney general will once again rise to the occasion." - George Bush on Alberto Gonzales

"In a sense, the media were victims of their own professionalism. Because there was little criticism of the war from prominent Democrats and foreign policy analysts, journalistic rules meant we shouldn't create a debate on our own." - Washington Post columnist David Ignatius
