Above you can see an image forwarded to us today that depicts the MSNBC cable news network attempting to explain the dynamics of Colorado’s Democratic U.S. Senate primary to their audience. But as our readers should be able to quickly see, there are a few problems:
- None of these men are running for the U.S. Senate in Iowa.
- The second photo is not Colorado U.S. Senate candidate Mike Johnston.
- No one named Mike Johnson is running for Colorado’s U.S. Senate seat.
- The depicted Mike Johnson is a member of Congress in Louisiana.
- Rep. Mike Johnson is a hard-right Republican.
On the upside, MSNBC did get the poll numbers right. And from their lofty perches that might be the whole story.
