    Whoops: PolitiFact's 'Lie of the Year' Turns Out to Be True

    Last month, PolitiFact selected its "Lie of the Year." Given PolitiFact's dubious record of singling out Republicans for lying far more often than Democrats, you probably could have guessed the winner of this particular sweepstakes was a Mitt Romney campaign ad:

    "Public expressed collective outrage"? That's essentially wishcasting on the part of PolitiFact, nor are they accurately representing what Mitt Romney said in the ad. In fact, here's PolitiFact's original "fact check" on the matter:

    [Mitt Romney] Says Barack Obama "sold Chrysler to Italians who are going to build Jeeps in China" at the cost of American jobs.

    Folks I live in Tampa Bay and read SP Times and constantly sickened by this "Pravada of the West" piece of crap for "journalism"!
    They have total GUTS to talk about integrity, etc. AND they are the WOrSHT SHILLS for Obama!

    Even today... visit their site and see this garbage!!!
