The L Word

As Ezra notes, this is a good article pointing out Rudy Giuliani's fabrications about health care. Paul Krugman also tackled this last week . This is all well and good, but reporters need to resort to stronger language here. In fact, there's a word tailor made for this kind of thing!

1. a false statement made with deliberate intent to deceive; an intentional untruth; a falsehood.
2. something intended or serving to convey a false impression; imposture: His flashy car was a lie that deceived no one.
3. an inaccurate or false statement.

Come on can use the "L"'s ok, really!
