    If we didn't create a market for the lies, then no one would find it profitable to sell lies all day.

    The WH press sec'y is there to speak for the pres and advocate for the president's policies, in addition to disseminating information. That's fine. If the WH were to lie, that wouldn't be fine.

    Some commentators do correct errors, even Bill-O . I can't think of an argument in favor of who cares if they're lying, they're commentators (as some in the thread appear to be saying).

    True. So instead of railing against the beast, we as a society just need to stop feeding it.
