PolitiBackfire

PolitiFact’s “Lie of the Year,” which they credited to Mitt Romney, turns out to be a lie on their part, not his. “It was a lie told in the critical state of Ohio in the final days of a close campaign — that Jeep was moving its U.S. production to China,” PolitiFact wrote. Now Reuters is reporting “Fiat (FIA.MI) and its U.S. unit Chrysler expect to roll out at least 100,000 Jeeps in China when production starts in 2014 as they seek to catch up with rivals in the world’s biggest car market.” Whoops! The Weekly Standard caught this, “So, yes, it’s confirmed that Jeep will be producing cars in China.” Of course, the damage to Romney has been done.
