Jay Carney Defends Obama's 'Lie of the Year'

Jay Carney Defends Obama's 'Lie of the Year'

During an event at Georgetown University, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney was asked how he felt about President Obama getting the “Lie of the Year” award from Politifact in 2013.

Obama repeatedly assured Americans during his push for health care reform that if they liked their health care plan, they could keep it under Obamacare–a statement that was clearly false.

Carney defended Obama’s statement, admitting that he came at it from a “different perspective” but reminding the audience that Obama thought it was true at the time.

Carney said that as a former reporter, however, he recognized good serious reporters who did good work–even though he might disagree with their reports.
