John King to Newton: DO Piss On My Leg And Tell Me That It's Raining
TRENDING: Gingrich campaign admits error
(CNN) - Newt Gingrich's campaign admitted Wednesday night the former House speaker was inaccurate when he claimed his team offered several witnesses to ABC News to refute statements made by Gingrich's second wife in a controversial interview aired last week.
In an interview on Tuesday, King pressed Gingrich on those claims, saying ABC News insisted no such witnesses were put forward.
Gingrich said ABC's defense was "just plain baloney."
"If they're saying that, then they're not being honest," Gingrich said. "We had several people prepared to be very clear and very aggressive in their dispute about that, and (ABC News) wasn't interested."
King was lied to, first at the debate and again days later. There was no error. There was no inaccuracy. Newton deliberately and repeatedly lied to King and then rubbed King's nose in it. And King and his employer choose to endorse those lies by refusing to acknowledge what they were.
Congratulations, John. You have no credibility as a journalist, but there's a bright future for you as the managing editor of PolitiFact.
