Brian Stelter retweets Matthew Yglesias’ hot take on Barack Obama’s ‘Lie of the Year’ for 2013

Poor Matthew Yglesias is getting upset that whenever he mentions President Trump lying, conservatives always shoot back with what Politifact named its “Lie of the Year” for 2013: Barack Obama’s assertion that “If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period.”

Would Yglesias like a different example? How about, “The Benghazi attack was a spontaneous protest over a YouTube video,” or, “I heard about Hillary Clinton’s homebrew email server when everyone else did, on the news” — even though we now know she was sending him emails from it. Wow, we can think of a bunch, but Yglesias insists he hears only one:

Not only did Yglesias “debunk” the lie of the year by calling it an “exaggeration” — CNN’s Brian Stelter retweeted it.

“That’s not how I interpreted his tweet. But that’s the beauty of twitter.” What, that journalists can just retweet something ridiculous and then shut down any discussion?

Be sure to tune into Stelter and “Reliable Sources” this weekend for more of his interpretations!
