“Journalist” David Gregory refuses to call out Obama’s lie that he “cut spending by over a trillion dollars in 2011″

On “Meet the Press” on December 30, 2012, President Obama said:

“I cut spending by over a trillion dollars in 2011″

In reality, CNS News reports:

According to the White House Office of Management and Budget, federal spending was not cut by $1 trillion in 2011. In fact, in fiscal 2010, federal spending was $3,456,213,000,000. In fiscal 2011, federal spending was $3,603,213,000,000. That was an increase of $147 billion.

I’m not sure which is worse – the fact that Obama would tell such a huge and easily provable lie – or the fact that a “journalist” on national television chose not to point out that Obama was way, way, way wrong.
