Can you spot all the AP euphemisms for lying in this piece about Wednesday night’s RNC speeches?  I found, factual shortcuts, glossed over, bucked reality, and stretched the truth.  I know pointing out that someone is lying is a strike against polite discourse but lying makes genuine discourse impossible.

*To their credit, the AP writers did pair the glossed over shortcuts with facts.
