Yesterday, we posted about the evisceration the Washington Post’s fact-checkers administered to Harry Reid and his Senate Majority PAC for its ad attempting to equate Bill Cassidy and the Koch Brothers on the flood insurance issue. That got a pretty good amount of traffic and feedback, if for no other reason than a lot of you found it as interesting as we did to see the WaPo tearing a Democrat apart with such gusto.
Prepare to be shocked once again, because last night on Greta Van Susteren’s show Ron Fournier of the National Journal, heretofore a fairly reliable lefty with an occasional wild conservative hair making its way into his nether regions, fired a fusillade in Reid’s direction for the ad as well…
(Hat tip: Gateway Pundit.)
National Review’s Jim Geraghty picked up on Fournier’s bombing of Reid, and offered a suggestion…
That’s great, Ron. Now go back to the first part, and realize, you have some say in whether or not Harry Reid gets away with this. How about a nice National Journal cover story on Reid’s increasingly bold and shameless lies?
So far, NJ doesn’t have anything on the Senate Majority PAC’s latest ad. Maybe later this week.
But when you run an ad in Louisiana that gets you called a liar on national TV by the AP’s former Washington bureau chief, it’s safe to say the ad hasn’t panned out as you’d hoped.
