Nevada Senate Ads Stretch the Truth
Nevada Senate Ads Stretch the Truth

Listen
AIR DATE: June 26, 2012

The Super PACs are already duking it out with competing ads blackening Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., and Congresswoman Shelley Berkley, D-Las Vegas, as they begin campaigning for Nevada's Senate seat - a seat that may be pivotal in which party gains control of the United States Senate. Factcheck.org has already found that these negative ads are trading in exaggerations and falsehoods - themes that seem to echo through the rest of the campaign.

News these days is nearly always misleading, agenda-driven, sensationalized drivel. Knowing the nature of politicians, why would one expect campaign ads to be any different??
