Bill Clinton has nothing on these guys when it comes to deceptive parsing of words.
Numerous news outlets are misquoting the President as having denied that he's engaged in data mining or trolling of phone records.
This is not, in fact, what he claimed. What he actually said, in the context of distinguishing between phone records and the actual content of calls, was:
"We're not mining or trolling through the personal lives of millions of innocent Americans."
I don't know -- but I'd bet you money -- that what he means is:
"We are mining your phone records; but those records are kept separately from your personal info (names and addresses). First we troll the data; then, if we feel like it, we get more personal."
Anyway, every news outlet that says "Bush denies data mining" needs to learn to read more carefully...and to think more dishonestly, like these guys do.
