Remember when conservatives were saying there was a CBO report out debunking the claims of the stimulus plan’s authors even though there was no such report? Ah, good times. Turns out that this information was broadcast at least 81 times on Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, and the Sunday shows.

That’s based on a study done by my ThinkProgress colleagues. And of course they had a limited number of media outlets they could monitor. There’s no telling how many times this myth was pushed on local television or talk radio or newspaper columns and the like.
