Accuracy in Media

A survey of historians of American presidents ranked the following as the top five presidents:

  1. Abraham Lincoln
  2. George Washington
  3. Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt
  4. Franklin Delano Roosevelt, or “FDR”
  5. Dwight D. Eisenhower, or “Ike”

Obama made the list as the twelfth-best president and George W. Bush was ranked thirty-third. Bill Clinton climbed up to fifteenth.

As an aside, how is FDR in the top five for illegally violating the U.S. Constitution to put Japanese-American citizens into internment camps during World War Two?
