Fox News Call Out Paul Ryan of the Day: Paul Ryan’s Wednesday night speech was a much-needed shot of adrenaline for an otherwise sleepy GOP convention, despite the fact that his remarks were chock-full of “brazen lies.” But for Fox News to acknowledge Ryan’s inaccuracies — wow. Sally Kohn’s piece, “Paul Ryan’s speech in 3 words,” calls the candidate’s remarks “dazzling,” but also “deceiving,” and “distracting”:
To anyone paying the slightest bit of attention to facts, Ryan’s speech was an apparent attempt to set the world record for the greatest number of blatant lies and misrepresentations slipped into a single political speech.
Read the whole thing here. 

“Fact: While Ryan tried to pin the downgrade of the United States’ credit rating on spending under President Obama, the credit rating was actually downgraded because Republicans threatened not to raise the debt ceiling.
Fact: While Ryan blamed President Obama for the shut down of a GM plant in Janesville, Wisconsin, the plant was actually closed under President George W. Bush. Ryan actually asked for federal spending to save the plant, while Romney has criticized the auto industry bailout that President Obama ultimately enacted to prevent other plants from closing.
Fact: Though Ryan insisted that President Obama wants to give all the credit for private sector success to government, that isn’t what the president said. Period. 
Fact: Though Paul Ryan accused President Obama of taking $716 billion out of Medicare, the fact is that that amount was savings in Medicare reimbursement rates (which, incidentally, save Medicare recipients out-of-pocket costs, too) and Ryan himself embraced these savings in his budget plan.”
