NY Times fails to call Christie a liar

Consider the following paragraph from this article:

A few months later, in November, when the Assembly speaker, Sheila Y. Oliver, a Democrat, and the governor were sparring over pension issues, she said she had requested a meeting with the governor. Mr. Christie called that “a lie.” Ms. Oliver’s office promptly produced text messages from the Assembly staff making the request.

The entire article is paragraph after paragraph of similar occurrences. I suppose I should be thankful that this is getting the sort of coverage that it is. However, I’m dissatisfied: the word “lie” appears only in the paragraph I’ve quoted, and it’s being used by Christie (to refer to a truthful comment, of course).

In a similar vein, see also this article about the tea party city councillor.
