My heart is with you, Cedar, but my head tells me that far more people walked away from the debate believing that Obama had scored one over Romney. Clarabelle Crowsfeet's next day "sort-of" self-correction was heard by very few (After all, who watches CNN anymore?). The damage had already been done, the moment for correction long passed, and only we conservatives bothered to fact-check what we already knew to be the truth, I believe Jay is correct when he says Mitt missed an opportunity to slam the lie in real time.

the idea is to CORNER the media in their bias,forcing them to change to avoid the appearance of bias.
Secondly,to sensitize the public to the media bias,by drawing their attention to it AS IT OCCURS.

President Obama’s lie at the debate--that he made an early call the Benghazi attack was terror-- was petty and ludicrous.

It was petty because, as a semantic dispute, it grasped brief advantage that necessarily had to yield to inevitable fact-checking. It was ludicrous because, as a matter of history, it pretended two weeks of vehement, contradictory spin from the administration never happened.

When Mitt Romney challenged Obama on his failure to admit the Benghazi massacre was terrorism, the president threw down a startling gauntlet: He had indeed called the attack an act...
