NY Times Edits Ryan’s Key Phrase Out of Transcript

Lying by omission. Falsehoods created with industrious editing. They will stop at very little to win. They become more dangerous the closer we get to 11-6.

NY Times Edits Ryan’s Key Phrase Out of Transcript

Remember when ABC News elided Mitt Romney’s entire opening speech from their transcript of the first presidential debate? Now it’s the New York Times that has cut a key phrase (and one of the best lines of the night) from Paul Ryan’s closing speech in his debate with Joe Biden last night.
For those who watched or listened to the debate, remember Ryan saying this as he closed?
The choice is clear: a stagnant economy that promotes more government dependency, or a dynamic, growing economy that promotes opportunity and jobs. Mitt Romney and I will not duck the tough issues.
Fine so far, right? But then Ryan continued, “And we will not blame others for the next four years.

That’s nowhere in the New York Times transcript. It’s been cut out.  
The stark contrast Ryan pointed out between two men who will take responsibility and the two men at the head of this country who whine, blame, and point fingers at everyone but themselves has absolutely disappeared form the New York Times, which claims it published a “full transcript of vice-presidential debate.”
