When Facts and Numbers Collide

Apparently, an accounting firm hired by a lobbying firm issued a report on the Senate's Health Reform bill that said exactly what the industry that the lobbying firm represents wanted the report to say. Then afterward, when other people began to look at those numbers and say, "Hey, wait a minute...", the accounting firm had to make a big ol' public statement so that everyone would know they had opted not to pursue any of the annoying little math problems that would disprove their client's position.

You gotta respect their doing this because, really: an accounting firm whose number crunching doesn't have even a shred of credibility isn't much of an accounting firm, is it?

Does this mean the Academy Awards aren't on the level?
