Ezra Klein's lie: Now you see it, now you don't!

Ezra Klein seemed pretty sure of himself when he defended the accuracy of this post, which was published on Klein’s “WONKBLOG” early this morning. But after Twitchy challenged Klein, someone subsequently made the decision that something was not right.

Here is the grammar-challenged text of the WONKBLOG post when it was published this morning:

The plant shut down in June 2008, when George W. Bush is (sic) president. Ryan says it had not yet shut down Obama was elected (sic)…

And here it is now:

The decision to close the plant was made in June 2008, when George W. Bush was president. Ryan says that Janesville was “about to” lose the factory at the time of the election…

Klein’s blog did not use the word “retraction” or “correction” or the phrase “we apologize for being lying liars.”  Nor did it acknowledge that the original assertion “The plant shut down in June 2008” was factually incorrect. Instead, a brief note of “clarification” was added to the top of the post, as Klein and his whitewashers cling to their “RYAN LIED” meme:

This post has been revised to clarify Paul Ryan’s inaccurate statement about the Janesville GM plant.

The spirit of “fake but accurate” lives.

  • Neil Leininger

    reading comprehension is not a liberal strong suit.

    “A lot of guys I went to high school with worked at that GM plant. Right there at that plant, candidate Obama said: ‘I believe that if our government is there to support you … this plant will be here for another hundred years.’ That’s what he said in 2008.
    Well, as it turned out, that plant didn’t last another year. It is locked up and empty to this day. And that’s how it is in so many towns today, where the recovery that was promised is nowhere in sight.”
    Obama made his speech in Feb. 2008. The plant was closed in June 2009 for good. So going by the actual dates, Ryan actually takes into account the June 2008 announcement that the plant was closing down. As that falls into the year he cited in his speech.
    On the other hand, we have a major semantic fail as well on the part of the Liberals.
    “And I believe that if our government is there to support you, and give you the assistance you need to re-tool and make this transition, that this plant will be here for another hundred years.”
    So Obama got his government bailout of GM structured exactly the way he wanted, yet the plant is still closed. Isn’t that the real message here. He promised that through government intervention this plant would be open for another 100 years. It’s not.
    When the plant closed is NOT the important thing to remember, that the plant is STILL CLOSED IS.

    • mlebauer

      Exactly! Companies can and do re-open plants when they find use for them. The facility still belongs to GM. The administration appointed the CEO of GM, it de facto controls the company, and could have it re-open the plant. That GM has no use for it is a function of its declining market share, and it’s probably are rare credit to Obama that he HASN’T ordered it re-opened for pure politically reasons. Still, that’s a small credit in the ocean of debits that is the GM bailout, which was entirely structured to benefit the UAW. Had GM gone through proper bankruptcy, it would have been restructured with lower union wages, health care costs, and pension commitments, making it viable and competitive. That it wasn’t probably assures a slow descent back to the bankruptcy court it should have seen in early 2009.

      And the larger point Ryan was making? a) Obama’s economic policies have failed the country, and b) Obama’s relentless campaigning is a blizzard of promises large and small, most of which he doesn’t remember, let alone intend to fulfill. He’s in way over his head and is pure style over substance.

    Most of the time, whether or not to close a manufacturing facility has absolutely nothing to do with who is the President of the U.S. Such decisions certainly shouldn’t be swayed by whoever is President, and I’m sure when the decision was made to close the plant, no one cared who was President.

    Under the O’Bumbler, such decisions are in fact influenced by the President. It is, of course, wrong.

    “My home state voted for President Obama. When he talked about change, many people liked the sound of it, especially in Janesville, where we were about to lose a major factory. A lot of guys I went to high school with worked at that GM plant.”

    Right there at that plant, candidate Obama said: “I believe that if our government is there to support you … this plant will be here for another hundred years.” That’s what he said in 2008. Well, as it turned out, that plant didn’t last another year. It is locked up and empty to this day.

    The decision to close the plant was made in June 2008, when George W. Bush was president. Ryan says that Janesville was “about to” lose the factory at the time of the election, and Obama failed to prevent this. This is false, as Ryan knew in 2008 when he issued a statement bemoaning the plant’s impending closing.

    How can this be false? FACT: The decision had been made in 2008 to close the plant. FACT: Obama knew this when he was there in 2008. FACT: Obama stated the plant would be open for another hundred years. FACT: The plant was closed within a year and remains closed today. FACT: Obama’s Auto Industry stimulus plan forced the closure of as many as 4 brands in the GM line. CONCLUSION: The plant was slated for closure, Obama built false hopes, then passed a bail-out plan that compromised the integrity of the industry, ensuring the closure of Janesville. He knew, when he made his prediction, that Janesville was doomed, but he, not Ryan, lied anyway.

    • http://www.facebook.com/kevkrom Kevin Krom

      Minor correction — when Obama visited in Feb 2008, the decision to close the plant had not yet been made (which happened in June). However, he then referred to Janesville by name in October as a plant that would be turned around by his policies, which would be after it was slated for closure. So, he was still making these claims (and the October statement was a PROMISE, whereas February’s was more of a claim) after he knew the plant was scheduled to close.

      Ryan’s statements were 100% correct, and the fact that the media wing of the democrat party is saying otherwise just proves their agenda.

    “Journolist 2008” was designed to libel and slander as ‘racist’ anyone who spoke less than reverently towards Obama. “Journolist 2012” is very obviously hip to the unworkable aspect of ‘evil’, ‘old’, ‘racist’ and ‘stupid’ memes with respect to Romney/Ryan and is thus focusing on ‘liar’.

        True. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s ‘Politiflack’ organization rated this section of his speech as false. Not even ‘half-true’ which is what it would be if one were just to misinterpret Ryan’s words in the manner the left did. [half true is supposedly needing some clarification to make it correct] The same Journal Sentinel has a story available online from April 2009 about the plant production finally ending.

        The local Janesville paper treats his speech a little more accurately. http://gazettextra.com/weblogs/opinion-matters/2012/aug/30/ryan-does-hometown-proud/

    Fact: The plant closed on June 2009. Fact: Obama was President at the time. Fact (the most important one): Obama had promised that GM plants would be around, with government support, for another ‘hundred years’.
    Another fact: It’s common knowledge that Obama gutted GM, forcibly closing plants and dealerships while intimidating secured creditors normally first in line at a bankruptcy into surrendering their interests to Obama’s favorite constituency; labor unions.

    Once again the leftist morons suffer from selective listening. Ryan never said that the plant closed down during the Obama administration even though it did. He said it didn’t last another year.

  • http://www.facebook.com/anthony.dagostino.773 Anthony DAgostino

    When I listened to Ryan last night I understood – through his acknowledgement that the plant was planned to be closed – that he was not BLAMING the CLOSURE on Obama. He said that the government INTERVENTION he was selling to the American people PROMISED to keep it open……He spoke from that very plant and spoke of that very location. The government intervention failed to STOP it’s closure. None of what Paul Ryan said was incorrect. I thought “fact checkers” were looking out for the folks by reviewing facts – not in the business of twisting words to support the facts as THEY want them to be.

    Never expect the Left to admit to a falsehood. That would undermine their self-conferred status as possessors of superior wisdom and morality — their stock in trade for the past fifty years. Why, if they had to admit that their adversaries are just as smart and just as decent as they, they might have to discuss the consequences of their policies!

    I got into it with @keitholberman and his liberal minians. They were spitting all over me saying it’s true because Olberman and so many left blogs said so. As soon as I posted the Janesville WI local paper from Feb 2009 stating “the GM factory is officially stopping production in April 2009″… nobody came back to me…Weird?
