New mainstream media stylebook definition of "a lie": a Republican national candidate accurately and precisely describing an embarrassing fact or narrative of events which casts a Democratic national candidate in a negative light.
Also, based on the report on the radio on the drive in this morning? "independent fact-checkers" should now be taken to read "captive re-tweeters of in-house Democratic campaign talking points". It's very strange - the convention coverage on NPR in the evening isn't especially over-the-top aside from E.J. Dionne - but the morning news is pure Mouth of Sauron, Democratic party propaganda plain and simple.
