Opinion Writing under the guise of fact-checking

Pants On Fire: PolitiFact Tries To Hide That It Rated 'True' in 2008 Obamacare's 'Keep Your Health Plan' Promise - Forbes: Avik Roy documents how the statement "If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it. Period," went from being rated 100% true by Politifact in the 2008 election to being this year's "Lie of the Year," by the same Pulitzer prize winning organization.

Remember this the next time a Liberal sententiously announces that some politically charged statement has received the ire or imprimatur of a 'politically neutral' fact checker.
