PolitiFact's "Lie of the Year" turns out to be true
PolitiFact- a Left-leaning "fact checker" which last year somehow generally seemed to find reasons to call Romney claims inaccurate while torturing logic to justify dubious claims by the Obama campaign- picked a Romney ad charging that Jeep was moving production facilities to China as its "lie of the year."
Also sprach PolitFact:
It was a lie told in the critical state of Ohio in the final days of a close campaign -- that Jeep was moving its U.S. production to China. It originated with a conservative blogger, who twisted an accurate news story into a falsehood. Then it picked up steam when the Drudge Report ran with it. Even though Jeep's parent company gave a quick and clear denial, Mitt Romney repeated it and his campaign turned it into a TV ad.
And they stood by the claim, even as the media and the public expressed collective outrage against something so obviously false.
But there's a problem: the "lie" turned out to be true.
Like Candy Crowley's support in the second debate of Obama's fib about having labeled the Benghazi fiasco a "terrorist incident" and the media's mockery of Romney's prediction of al Quaeda-involved trouble in Mali, more and more of the partisanship of the mainstream media in its support of the most slanderous, dishonest, and vicious campaign in recent history- the Obama campaign of 2012- is being exposed before history for what it was.
Whether the American people are paying attention bias which characterized the most slanderous, dishonest, and personally vicious presidential campaign in recent history or not, the slander-prone Obama campaign is being exposed before history for the travesty it was.
And so is the support given it by the "coverage" of the incredibly biased liberal media.
