Member of Congress, Senate candidate
Washington Post fashion critic Robin Givhan was brought in after the House swearing-in to write about fashion -- well, not really. As usual, she used fashion as a subtext for her liberal politics. The new ultraliberal women in the House were all fabulous in their diversity of dress, especially Nancy Pelosi in pink, "like the plumage of a brazen bird, not just to fly with the flock but to lead it."
Snopes.com keeps attacking conservative website articles as "False" when the facts favor the conservatives. On November 9, these "fact checkers" tagged LifeNews.com as "False" for a headline that said "Arizona Senate Candidate Kyrsten Sinema Voted to Allow Abortions Up to Birth."
In Sunday’s New York Times, congressional correspondent Jennifer Steinhauer tried to defuse a potent line of attack by Republican U.S. Senate candidate Martha McSally against her Democratic challenger Kyrsten Sinema in “Charge of Treason Escalates In Close Race for Arizona Senate Seat.” Steinhauer warned "Ms. McSally’s ads and those of her supporters have been relentlessly negative and darkly accusative, which is a great primary play, but may hurt her with general election voters."
It's the fall campaign season, so it's not surprising that PolitiFact is going to start providing the liberal spin to evaluate Republican campaign ads. On Monday, they threw a "Mostly False" rating at Rep. Martha McSally in the U.S. Senate race. Yes, Rep. Kyrsten Sinema wore a pink tutu to "No War" protests, but "we found no evidence of her disparaging troops."
Sen. Jeff Flake’s floor speech on Tuesday was greeted like a heroic and historic moment. The media elite didn’t want to drain the “thunderclap” of this moment for political reality: Flake had to drop out. He was going to get crushed in a primary. Nobody played that as the lead story. Everyone chose Flake’s spin, that awful Trump forced him to do this. The Hill recently reported a poll showing Flake losing the primary by 27 points, 58-31.
