The column then goes on to say that the Obama campaign has made false claims regarding the story – which, remember, the Romney campaign still claims was inaccurate to begin with.
“[T]here is little in the Post article that backs up the Obama campaign’s spin,” Kessler says.
Nevertheless, he refuses to scold the Obama campaign for this. “Given that this debate involves an interpretation of a Post article, we are not going to award any Pinocchios.”
To recap: The Post’s story is accurate, says the Post’s Fact Checker, but the claims the Obama campaign is making about the report are inaccurate; that’s OK, because it — the story — is open to debate.
At least, I think that is what Kessler says.
