Obama's 'Truth Team' is full of it, says... Jake Tapper of ABC News (echoing conservatives on Twitter)



President Obama’s campaign “Truth Team” is the snitch brigade spawn of the failed Atttaaaaaaaack Watch.

Earlier today, this Big Brother arm of Team Obama urged its followers to “report an attack” at its citizen monitoring and speech police website and hammered Mitt Romney for telling the truth about spending under the Obama White House.

After conservatives on Twitter noted the TT’s reliance on a debunked Market Watch report, ABC News reporter Jake Tapper followed up tonight:


An email from the Obama campaign encapsulates the problem when political campaigns seize the language of fact checkers, muddying the waters.
In the note, sent later in the day today, Obama campaign deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter invites supporters to “report an attack” at the Truth Team report page.

“Received a robo-call or an email forward full of falsehoods?” the page asks. “Found a misleading leaflet in your mail? Tell us about it, and help fight back against the attacks on President Obama and his record.”

Cutter in her email hammers Mitt Romney for saying “Since President Obama assumed office three years ago, federal spending has accelerated at a pace without precedent in recent history,” which she refutes with a Market Watch blog saying that federal spending is rising at the slowest pace since President Eisenhower.

Here’s the problem: the Market Watch item has been refuted by several fact checkers as severely flawed, notwithstanding its citation by White House press secretary Jay Carney along with the assertion that reporters should “not buy into the BS that you hear about spending and fiscal constraint with regard to this administration. I think doing so is a sign of sloth and laziness.”


Takeaway from Tapper: “They want all attacks to be dismissed as falsehoods — and that is simply not the case.”

Will the Truth Team / Attack Watch 2.0 brigades be reporting Tapper’s “attack” next?
