Media should call out Palin lies

Many in the news media are hesitant to call a politician's statements lies. Witness abacnews:

"On Obama, On Earmarks, Palin less than honest"

I have no problem with anyone telling the parts of a story that they want to communicate and ignore other facts. That is spin. That is fine. That is American. But Palin has lied on numerous issues. When people leave thinking the opposite of the truth, you have lied. You have mislead them. The problem in this case is the bigger the lies, the less the media will set the story straight because they don't want to be charged as anti-republican, sexist, or liberal elites.

Stand up and tell the truth!
