Ad Check: Crossroads GPS Uses Misleading Video Clips To Vilify Public Employee Unions

The latest ad from Crossroads GPS — backed with $750,000 from the right-wing billionaires who fund Karl Rove's brainchild — smears public employee unions with out-of-context video clips and a statistic so misleading even the conservative scholar the ad cites to back it up condemns the ad as a misrepresentation of his work. With GOP efforts to bust public worker unions in Wisconsin seemingly on the ropes, this ad attempts to reframe the debate by painting union workers as violent, selfish, and overpaid shills of the Democratic Party. In the process, Crossroads GPS tells some whoppers.

Fact Checking The Sunday Shows - October 24, 2010

Sunday's political talk shows featured former RNC chairman Ed Gillespie lying to ABC viewers about voter attitudes toward outside groups like his brainchild, American Crossroads, and then misleading about jobs and the economy. In fact, over 70 percent of respondents in this month's NBC/Wall Street Journal poll are concerned about outside spending making lawmakers "beholden" to outside groups. On Face the Nation, Gillespie's colleague Karl Rove claimed conservatives are only just catching up to liberals in outside spending, when it's been a dead heat for a couple cycles now, and studies show conservative groups are less likely to disclose donors than their liberal counterparts. Meanwhile, on Fox News Sunday, Republican senate candidate Pat Toomey (PA) forgot that American companies pay less tax than our statutory corporate tax rates, and forgot that President Reagan raised taxes 11 times between the famous 1981 tax cut and the rampant economic growth for which Reagan is remembered.
