Jonathan Cohn, at the New Republic, examines the media's coverage of Congressman Ryan's convention speech and the degree to which it was less than honest. Cohn is one of the smartest policy analysts I know of, and here he engages in the fine art of casuistry, which got a bad name in Elizabethan England and Port Royal, but which is nothing else than a concern for precision in moral analysis. Bravo.
