JAMES TARANTO: Newt Year In Jerusalem: The Associated Press literally doesn’t know the meaning of the word “fact.” “It would not have been hard to recast this story to make it journalistically sound, though it would have entailed a bit more work. . . . Instead, the AP published what is essentially an opinion piece, and a rather lazy one at that. If we may borrow Gingrich’s favorite word, to label that a ‘fact check’–as if it had some greater authority than actual reporting–is fundamentally dishonest.”
