Conservatives: Why?

I will never understand the pathology that goes with conservatism where even a regional talk show host has to make things up.

"Gunny" Bob Newman cited an unidentified article to suggest falsely that Vice President-elect Joe Biden had a run-in with a movie theater manager when he and his wife were unable to buy tickets for a sold-out film. Newman claimed the manager said, " 'What part of [sold out] don't you understand?' Or words to that effect." In fact, the article reported that the manager thought it was "a kick" to see the Bidens and that the pair "didn't ask for special treatment."

This guy just invented an entire conversation. It's not that he got the quotes wrong - it never freaking happened!
