McCain Lies About Politifact.com; Gets Caught By Politifact.com
“Less Than Honest…”
“With its latest ad, released Sept. 10, the McCain-Palin campaign has altered our message in a fashion we consider less than honest. The ad strives to convey the message that FactCheck.org said “completely false” attacks on Gov. Sarah Palin had come from Sen. Barack Obama. We said no such thing.” Politifact, 9/10/2008
Speaking of Politifact.com, John McCain successfully gained his fifth “Pant’s On Fire” rating. This rating is reserved for only the most outrageous lies. McCain has received more “Pant’s on Fires” than any other candidate.
“If there’s lipstick on a pig, it’s this McCain ad.”
Update: CBS has since made John McCain remove this web ad from his Youtube channel because of its “misleading” and unauthorized use of Katie Couric. You can see the full Couric footage here.
