Chicago Sun-Times
The scoop from Washington

Factcheck credits Sun-Times with digging up Obama's "false fingerpointing" in "Whoppers of 2009"

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--Factcheck.org, came out with its list of "Whoopers of 2009"--"the choicest falsehoods"
of the year, and a Sun-Times column I did about how President Obama could not support the claim he made in a speech that a Chicago area man --Otto Raddatz--died because his insurance coverage was yanked made the top of the list of whoopers from liberal.

On the conservative side, the biggest whooper was the assertion by Sarah Palin and others that the Democratic authored health care bill included "death panels."
