When does inaccuracy become an outright lie?

Read this takedown of the “Obama trip costs $200 million a day” lie and let me know.

If you think it’s unfair that we’re only talking about one sliver of the political spectrum here, feel free to dig up something on the Alar scare or some other overeager bleeding-heart cause, go ahead. But I’d have to say this sliver of the spectrum has a remarkable ability to stick with the inaccuracy even after it has been clearly shown to be false.
