You can make your fingers type those words but that doesn't begin to make them true.

If you have to resort to bullying to try to subvert facts, it shows weakness in your arguments or knowledge of the facts. Most TV "news" outlets have become puppets of their ideologies and routinely distort or ignore facts and you can't count on them to get to the truth. Benghazi is a recent example.
After a round of meetings last week and hearings for prospective Secretary of State John Kerry, it seems the bipartisan spirit has grasped Capitol Hill with regard to President Obama's cabinet nominees.

As the Associated Press reports, some of the Senate's wavering Democrat members have had good words for Chuck Hagel:

Sens. Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Chris Coons of Delaware and Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire said they met with Hagel this week and were reassured by his commitment to Israel's security.
