John McCain’s Campaign: Lying About Fact Checking

Shares

I wonder how many hours Karl Rove spends at Fox, and how many with McCain?

A McCain-Palin ad has FactCheck.org calling Obama’s attacks on Palin "completely false" and "misleading." That’s what we said, but it wasn’t about Obama.

They call the ad "Fact Check." It says "the attacks on Gov. Palin have been called ‘completely false’ … ‘misleading.’ " On screen is a still photo of a grim-faced Obama. Our words are accurately quoted, but they had nothing to do with Obama.

Honorable Senator McCain in action.
