Jim Lakely: "The PolitiFact ‘Lie of the Year’ Is the Lie of the Year About Obamacare"

It's always a good time to review the perfidious PolitiFact treatment of the Democrats' attempted government takeover of healthcare.

This Dec. 2010 item from a Heartland Institute blog ("Somewhat Reasonable") by Jim Lakely makes its point largely through items we have already highlighted, but it's worth a read on its own:
PolitiFact holds itself up as an objective arbiter of “truth” and “lies” in America’s political discourse. But, like any organ played by the MSM, this project of The St. Petersburg Times is inclined to succumb to institutional liberal bias. PolitiFact’s “Lie of the Year” award for 2010 is a great example.
Lakely's title may rate as the finest in its specific genre.
