Fast and ferocious is not another phony  Obama administration scandal like Solyndra, Fast and Furious, Benghazi or the IRS targeting TEA Party groups. Fast and ferocious is how I describe GOP, FOX and their allies speed and venom in making up new allegations to divert the public and the media from real scandals such as the recent GOP-sponsored government shutdown and the continuing GOP obstruction. It is much easier and less time-consuming to make up false charges than it is to refute them. Obstructionists on the Right accept neither science nor logic in the refutation of their claims. Their false charges live on in the blogosphere, on talk radio and on FOX. For an example, please see the second related article below.

In all the discussion about the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), some in the media, particularly at FOX, are quoting statistics about how some insurance premiums have risen 200-300%. However, they are not comparing comparable policies, apples to apples, they are comparing policies with vastly difference coverages, apples to prunes.
