USA TODAY’S fact-checking of Obama’s town-hall assertions is discussed by Ed Morrissey. And here’s more fact-checking from Heritage. I love this bit from Ed on the generally-credulous media treatments: “The media had a field day with this yesterday, using Isakson as a bat with which beat conservative critics, but it never occurred to the layers of fact-checkers and editors that a Senator would have had nothing to do with a clause in a House bill. In fact, Isakson does support making end-of-life planning available, but doesn’t support the mandate for it that exists in Section 1233 of the House bill.” Senate, House, whatever. If the distinction were important, it would have been in the talking points.
