As Twitchy reported, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney last week tried to enlist Twitter’s help in pinning the looming sequestration cuts on the Republicans, offering up the recycled #GOPamnesia campaign hashtag. For their part, House and Senate Republicans fought back with #Obamaquester, and several members of the GOP even replaced their Twitter avatars with a highlighted passage from Bob Woodward’s book, “The Price of Politics,” showing the inception of the idea in the White House.

Surprising no one, NPR has decided to run interference for the Obama administration, calling the sequester “a Republican invention.”

So, just how wrong is NPR this time? Even the Obama fan club at PolitiFact rated as “mostly false” the president’s debate claim that “the sequester is not something that I proposed.”

@nprpolitics That is a willful deception.
