Re "Health care law distorted" (Ad Watch, Aug. 23): How does a statement classified as mostly misleading on the Ad Watch scale, not qualify as an outright lie? The dictionary defines a lie as making "a knowingly false statement with intent to mislead."
Are we to believe that Karl Rove and Associates did not intend to mislead? Or does the insertion of an actual fact, that Rep. Ami Bera has not voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act, save the statement from the outright lie category? Really?
A lie by any other name would smell as bad.
