About That ‘Twitter Debate Study’ WaPo And Twitchy Cite

Washington Post had an article this week about How Twitter is changing the national Common Core debate.

Michelle Malkin has been a monster on Twitter on Common Core, this is undeniable. The moms out there tweeting everyday should also be recognized for their tremendous effort and impact.

I just wanted to remind folks about who did this ‘study’, what was really the purpose and who was contacted. Also, who didn’t consent to participate and the unanswered question of who funded this study.

@michellemalkin Mr. Supovitz approached me on the ‘twitter project’. I didn’t consent & he didn’t answer my Q’s: http://t.co/BAx3yEZUvk

Rep. Foxx Is Dead Wrong on H.R. 5 (Update: So Is The Blaze)

Yesterday, Rep. Virginia Foxx penned an Op-Ed at Breitbart about H.R. 5, “The Student Success Act”. Her Op-Ed contains all the same talking points as other co-sponsors of this bill and she’s facing criticism for it on her Facebook page.

Many of the claims Rep. Foxx has made about the bill appear to be false and the main premise of the article was that the bill reduces the ‘federal footprint’ and that “The Student Success Act gets Washington out of the business of running schools.”
