    When it first appeared in our newspaper, I thought it was a good thing, that they would impartially examine campaign claims and hyperbole and make a reasoned assessment.

    Lately, it appears they must think they need to be "fair and balanced."  On several occasions they have parsed purposely misleading GOP statements to find some small nugget of truth that would let them use "Partially True."  At the same time, they have ignored the overall thrust of Democrats' statements to label them "False," or in this case, "Pants on Fire."
