James Taranto: "'Death Panels' Revisited"

James Taranto's Wall Street Journal column goes back in time a bit to PolitiFact's biased selection of Sarah Palin's "death panel" post as its "Lie of the Year" for 2009.  Read it all, but the gist is here:
In truth, PolitiFact was more vulnerable to the charge of lying than Palin was, for its highly literal, out-of-context interpretation of her words was at best extremely tendentious.

I couldn't agree more.
