    Not to defend Sanchez, but what he seemed to mean was that a report that someone has told the truth is not news but a report that someone has lied is news. That doesn't mean he isn't a total shitbag, of course, because in this case, neither the alleged lie nor the alleged truth are news standing alone. The only proper news is the question of what Blumenthal meant to tell people when he spoke of his service and the only proper way to report that news is to tell the whole story and not cherry pick for purposes of sensationalism.
