The Context Lie

One of the most stunning things about the Sotomayor controversy is the apparent ease with which her defenders have lied on her behalf. Not only where her words not taken out of context but if you read the rest of what she was saying it actually sounds much worse.

But the majority of Americans won't know that. Take Feinstein for example,

Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor told Sen. Dianne Feinstein Tuesday her controversial Latina remarks were a "poor choice of words," the California Democrat said.

“She said, 'Obviously it was a poor choice of words if you read on and read the rest of my speech you wouldn’t be concerned with it but it was a poor choice of words,'" Feinstein told reporters.

And this is a lie that has been repeated time and again by Democrats- with no corrections from the MSM.

Embarrassed by a racist statement? Why, just claim it was taken out of context and rely on the media not to report that the opposite is true.

Democrats must really love the "watch-dog" media.
