NewsReal’s Tim and Alissa Birkel have been focusing on rebutting the smears and distortions of MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow. They have created a series chronicling Maddow’s missteps titled “A Spoonful of Saccharine” Explaining the title, the husband-and-wife writing team wrote in their first entry in the series:

Our friend and colleague David Swindle wrote that Rachel Maddow is the Mary Poppins of the left, pleasant and reasonable-sounding enough that she comes off as more reasonable than her actual stance might be. Mary Poppins used a spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down, but Maddow’s sweetener of choice is something different. Hers is pure fiction: a calorie-and-truth-free artificial sweetener to help the leftist ideology go down. And (with apologies to diet soda aficionados) like most artificial sweeteners something about it tastes wrong, it’s a poor substitute for the real thing, consuming too much can give you a headache, and prolonged exposure can lead to cancer. OK, so that last part of the analogy doesn’t really hold. But observe the artificial truth flavoring her latest show.
