Sep 10, 2008 needs fact checking

On August 19, reported:
An Obama ad uses dated and out of context quotes to portray McCain as clueless on the economy.
Obama's offense? McCain's statements that the economy is strong and that we are not heading toward recession were several months old; the economic situation has changed since then, and so has McCain's assessment of it.

Except that McCain's assessment hasn't changed by an iota.
Here’s John McCain on August 20 talking to Laura Ingraham: “I still believe the fundamentals of our economy are strong.”
McCain proved wrong the day after they criticized Obama. Three weeks later, has not published a correction.

UPDATE: David Neiwert finds FactCheck sloppy on Palin's AIP connection.
