JOE SCARBOROUGH lies about Newt Gingrich?

"When Gingrich was speaker of the House,
he was responsible for kick-starting a movement
that did ...historic things:

(1) Balance the budget for the first time in a generation.

(2) Balance the budget four years in a row
for the first time since the 1920s.

Didn't the budget balance include Social Security's surplus,
which has now been spent by Joe, Obama, Newt etc...,
leaving trillions of unfunded liabilities?


Lying by omission

One lies by omission by omitting an important fact,
deliberately leaving another person with a misconception.

Lying by omission includes failures to correct pre-existing misconceptions.

…Propaganda is an example of lying by omission.
