CNS Puts Words In Tim Geithner's Mouth
Topic: CNSNews.com

The headline of Elizabeth Harrington's Nov. 19 CNSNews.com article reads "Treasury Secretary Geithner: Lift Debt Limit to Infinity." Harrington starts the article by writing, "Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said Friday that Congress should stop placing legal limits on the amount of money the government can borrow and effectively lift the debt limit to infinity."

Just one little problem: Geithner never says the word "infinity." While Geithner does advise eliminating the debt ceiling, it's to keep it from being used as "a tool for political advantage," as Harrington eventually concedes, not out of a desire to "lift the debt limit to infinity."

CNS has a notable history of putting words in the mouths of their political enemies.
