The Kennebec Journal got it mostly wrong with its headline on July 19, “Truth Meter: Dill mostly false on contraception claim.”

The article states that she was right about Charlie Summer’s position on insurers having to cover contraception. This means that since Dill was right on at least 1 out of 2, she could not be “mostly false,” or maybe I don’t get the KJ’s math.

Under that math, Dill was “mostly right.” Sen. Dill was partly correct about Angus King’s position as he opposed mandated contraception coverage without co-payments, a position he has apparently now changed. It would be mostly right for the KJ to apologize to Dill.
