Barton Falsely Claims 'There is not a Single Grocery Store in the City Limits of Detroit'
On today's edition of "WallBuilders Live," David Barton and Rick Green were discussing what they considered several positive changes that were taking place in the state of Michigan thanks to the election of lots of Tea Party candidates to the state legislature. In making the point that things were really bad in the state, Barton claimed that he was recently there and was shocked to learn that there is "not a single grocery store in the city limits of Detroit":
Detroit has a population of over 700,000 and Barton is claiming that there is not one grocery store within a city this size? How exactly does he think these people are getting food?
Now I haven't been to Detroit in person, but I do have access Google Street View which allows me to find various of grocery stores located within the city in about two minutes, like University Foods located at 1131 Warren Ave W, Detroit, MI 48208:
And an Aldi grocery store located at 15415 Gratiot Ave, Detroit, MI 48205:
And Parkway Foods located at 13210 E Jefferson Ave, Detroit, MI 48215:
In fact, a simple Google Maps search for "supermarket" in Detroit returns dozens and dozens of results:
As we have said several times before, if Barton cannot be trusted to accurately report on contemporary issues that are easily verifiable to anyone with internet access, how can anyone trust anything that he says?
