Neil Cavuto Repeats John McCain's Big Lie About Oil Spills and Katrina

Reported by Melanie - September 3, 2008 -

On July 14, John McCain's senior energy adviser, Nancy Pfotenhauer, told this lie: "We withstood Hurricanes Rita and Katrina and didn’t spill a drop" of oil.

And here are the facts which, of course, are of no matter to journalists propagandists, who are void of integrity, like Fox's Cavuto.
