MEDIA USES EUPHEMISMS TO DESCRIBE ROMNEY THE LIAR'S RUNNING MATE, LYIN' RYAN

Confronted with a mass of brazen, out-and-out lies from Little Paulie Ryan this week, the members of the news media have resorted to indirect ways of describing Ryan's lies. Examples:

1. "GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan took some factual shortcuts during the Republican convention when he attacked President Barack Obama." (Cal Woodward and Jack Gillum at The Associated Press)

2. "It was just one of several striking and demonstrably misleading elements of Ryan's much-anticipated acceptance speech." (Ryan Grim at The Huffington Post)

3. "Ryan misleads on GM plant closing in hometown: Paul Ryan appeared to suggest that President Obama was responsible for the closing of a GM plant in Ryan’s hometown of Janesville, Wisc. That's not true." (Glenn Kessler at The Washington Post)

4. "Ryan's misleading speech... was part introduction of himself and his small-town origins, part testimonial to his running mate and — in largest part — a slashing and, in many elements, misleading indictment of President Obama as both a spent force and a threat to American freedom." (The editorial board at The Washington Post)

5. "Paul Ryan's factually shaky Republican convention speech... is getting slammed for some pretty heavy inaccuracies." (Brett LoGiurato at Business Insider)

You know, I have an idea. Follow the lead of people like Joan Walsh:

CALL LIES WHAT THEY ARE: LIES 

Willard and Little Paulie intend to lie their faces off every day between now and Election Day. The media have to guts it up and call them on it, loudly and clearly. R and R's policies are horrifying and their campaign despicable. Only concerted demands for the truth can stop them.

Because Romney and Ryan can't stand exposure to the light of day.

  1. The only people who call Mitt are liar are two members of his own party -- Gingrich and Joe Scarborough. The American press is gutless.

    Liar does not go far enough to define Mitten and Paulie. They need to add bald faced, shameless, compulsive and pathological.
