Reader RichardH sent me the link to The New York Times editorial, Mr. Romney Hits Bottom on Welfare, as a response to my previous post Romney’s welfare-to-work attack on Obama not quite accurate, experts say.
From The New York Times editorial:
Mitt Romney’s campaign has hit new depths of truth-twisting with its accusation that President Obama plans to “gut welfare reform” by ending federal work requirements. The claim is blatantly false, but it says a great deal about Mr. Romney’s increasingly desperate desire to define the president as something he is not.
My confirmation bias likes this editorial.
I do sometimes wonder how the media can say things are “not quite accurate”, “depths of truth-twisting”, “claim is blatantly false”, and still not be able to simply say “it is a lie”.
