Friday, September 12, 2008 Debunks McCain's "Fact Check" ad

Newsweek is pretty upset with McCain using "" in his ad to claim that Obama has been "misleading" people about Palin. Well, debunked that.

The ad:

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 said "completely false" attacks on Sarah Palin had come from Sen. Barack Obama. We said no such thing. We have yet to dispute any claim from the Obama campaign about Palin.

They call the ad "Fact Check." It says "the attacks on Gov. Palin have been called 'completely false' ... 'misleading.' " On screen is a still photo of a grim-faced Obama. Our words are accurately quoted, but they had nothing to do with Obama.

Pretty low, McCain.
