NYT: Obama's Health Insurance Lie an 'Incorrect Promise'

The New York Times has now decided that President Obama’s lie about Americans being able to keep their health insurance wasn’t a lie at all – instead, it was an “incorrect promise.” That’s the language Times reporters Michael D. Shear and Robert Pear used in describing Obama’s big fib in their Tuesday piece, “Obama in Bind Trying to Keep Health Law Vow.”

The reporters did point out that Obama apologized for “wrongly assuring Americans that they could retain their health plans if they wanted,” but then labeled that wrongful assurance an “incorrect promise on health care coverage.”

An incorrect promise is sort of like a “white Hispanic” – a phrase made up by the media in order to reach a predetermined political endpoint. There are those of us in the real world who label an “incorrect promise” what it is: a lie. And then there is The New York Times.

An incorrect promise?  Is that sort of like a big loser, a jumbo shrimp, a kinder and gentler war, actually being for something before being against it?  "What difference can it make now" what the term is?
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

Or the 'least untruthful answer' a la James Clapper.

It's the new normal...
