From Scott Maxwell of Orlando Sentinel, 09/28/2018:
If I told you there were lies in politics, it would probably shock you about as much as if I told you there’s water in the ocean.
This campaign season, however, we’re seeing something more extreme — falsehoods in nine of the nine Rick Scott ads vetted by the Pulitzer Prize-winning fact-checkers at Politifact.
Yes, nine out of nine.
… “Lies” isn’t a word I use casually. But when one of the most acclaimed fact-checking services in America labels nine ads “False,” “Mostly false” or “Pants on Fire,” what would you call it?
