No. of Recommendations: 2 lost all credibility when it's "Lie of the year" turned out to be true.

Um, only in detached-from-reality world.

It's still "Lie of the Year" to everyone else, as reaffirmed by Politfact: "That wording, plus a quote on the screen that said Chrysler "plans to return Jeep output to China," clearly suggested that Jeep was shifting its U.S. production to China."

And Fact Check reaffirms its four Pinocchio rating: "With all due respect to Stevens, the claim that Romney turned out to be right is simply not accurate. We fail to see how the argument used to defend Romney against charges of outsourcing — which this column often argued was mostly bogus — can be turned on its head in this particular situation.

Meanwhile, the ad has other serious problems — such as mischaracterizing the PolitiFact column, ignoring the context of the Detroit News endorsement and miscasting Obama’s role in the sale to Fiat. We reaffirm our earlier ruling of Four Pinocchios.
