Ebola Exaggerations Called Political "Lie of the Year"

December 24, 2014

Ethics Daily ran my latest article today, which is titled "Ebola Exaggerations Called Political 'Lie of the Year.'" In the piece, I report on what PolitiFact.com called the biggest political lie for 2014. PolitiFact did a good job highlighting a clear distortion made by many politicians and media outlets. While Ebola remains a serious problem in western Africa, the coverage about it in the U.S. greatly missed the point. After noting PolitiFact's arguments in today's article, I also review Ethics Daily's well-focused Ebola coverage.
