Everyone can have a private definition of a word. I would take the dictionary over a political screed.

Then you've made another mistake, because the dictionary -- in this case Macmillan's  -- confirms that I'm correct:
Quote
falsehood

NOUN FORMAL

1. [COUNTABLE] a statement that is not true

It doesn't have to be intentional to be a falsehood, petrushka.  

Lies are falsehoods, but not all falsehoods are lies.
