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.It's stunning arrogance, thinking that you can lie about the organization whose job it is to call out lies.
Our article criticized anonymous e-mail falsehoods and bogus claims about Palin posted around the Internet. We have no evidence that any of the claims we found to be false came from the Obama campaign.
The McCain-Palin ad also twists a quote from a Wall Street Journal columnist. He said the Obama camp had sent a team to Alaska to "dig into her record and background." The ad quotes the WSJ as saying the team was sent to "dig dirt."
Lying about Factcheck! Wow.
McCain is now airing an ad saying FactCheck called Obama's attacks dishonest. Of course, FactCheck was actually on Obama's side, not criticising him.
