Numerous ads across the country by the US Chamber of Commerce and Karl Rove's Crossroads organization have been found to be anywhere from "seriously misleading" to outright false by sources such as FactCheck.org, resulting in a continuous stream of ads being pulled from circulation by broadcasters and new ones immediately put up in their place. While these groups and their followers attempt to deflect attention from foreign funding of their campaigns, relatively little attention has been paid to the fact that they're basically lying to the American people to corrupt and distort election outcomes. In other words, they're trying to buy an election by flooding the airwaves with lies, hoping to drown out the truth and pervert our democracy. The objectives and priorities of the Republican Party have never been more plainly on display.
The Plum Line - Rove, Chamber ads widely debunked as false or misleadingWe're witnessing a massive disinformation campaign flooding airwaves across the country that could change the outcome of major races and shift the balance of power in Congress, funded by money from undisclosed sources, justified with still more falsehoods and disinformation.
