It’s a competition in US politics that nobody wants to win. Yep, talking about who had the biggest lie of the year (and the results are in ), ya, (Josh Levs here with that answer.)

-You guys get your own drums going around.
-I'm trying, I am trying with that. So the biggest lie of the year. That’s, that’s not something anyone wants to hold the title to.

Yeah, it’s dubious1 distinction and you know where it comes from, it comes from PolitiFact.com. It’s that reality checking website from the St. Petersburg Times that give ruling to what the politicians say. They are constantly looking at new assertions that goes from true, through half-true , all the way down to the pants on fire, difference I will show here. They polled out some what they called the biggest lies of the year, so here is what I am gonna do, I'm gonna show you a couple of candidates and then the winner, one of the candidates was this.

“The reforms, the reforms I’m proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally.” “You lie.”. “It’s not true.”Representative Joe Willison famously yelled "you lie" at that moment. PolitiFact say, while there has been a debate, there wasn't a debate over how illegal immigrants will be impacted by health care legislation, there was not enough to make the case that prove President Obama had lies so they make Willison's accusation2 a candidate for "lie of the year". But another candidate was this from President Obama saying why insurance company should be required to cover preventive care.

“Because there’s no reason we shouldn’t be catching3, diseases like breast cancer and colon4 cancer before they get worse. That makes sense, it saves money and it saves lives.”

Preventive care does help save lives and it is important but PolitiFact say it actually does not save the country money. Congressional budget office says that, it adds to overall cost.

All right, so there’re a couple of the other examples, but in the end, the lie of the year by far according to Politifact.com, here’s the drum ball, was this: say, it was from the former Alaska's governor Sarah Palin saying “Senior and the disabled ‘will have to stand in front of Obama’s ‘death panel’ so his bureaucrats5 can decide… whether they are worthy6 of health care”. PolitiFact said the health care bill she was talking about did not establish anything like that, so the editors of Politifact chose it for their "lie of the year" and they hold a poll on their website in which people could vote. They got her five-thousand vote as 61% named it top lie of the year.

And to be fair, Politifact points out, she stands by this. Last month she told this in a national review of Conservative Publication. She said the terms should not be taken literally7 . She called “a lot like when President Reagan used to refer to the Soviet8 Union as the ‘evil empire’. He got his point across. He got people thinking and researching what he was talking about. It was quite effective, she said the same thing with the ‘death panels’. I would characterize them like that again, in a heartbeat.”

What do you think? Here is how you can weigh in. We’re talking about that in the blog of facebook and twitter, JoshLevsCNN, the blog is CNN.com/Josh, tell us what you think, Was it the biggest lie of the year that have the biggest impact ? Do you view it as a lie, what do you think about all these? So there you go. Betty and Rob, Politifact’s choice and the viewers’choice on their website for lie of the year.
