Disunion of Facts

Mickey Kaus catches ABC's The Note hallucinating a revival in long-moribund union-membership numbers.

I'd noticed the same problem with the item in question. It references "a resurgence in union membership across the nation," but the story it links to ... well, says no such thing. Union membership remains in the tank where it has long been.

But, well, I didn't write it up. [So why are you writing it up now? To prove you're slower than Kaus?--ed You said that. It just seems like news our readers would be interested in.]

Since Kaus's permalinks are as bad as ever, his item is reproduced after the jump.

[UPDATE: Here's a permalink that works. Kaus post no longer reproduced below. Go look at Slate's ads!]
