Talent for Deception

10/26/06 | by [mail] | Categories: culture/news

Nonpartisan political watchdog site, FactCheck.org has released a report saying that several of Jim Talent's ads are "misleading" and "deceive voters."

In four separate TV spots Republican Sen. Jim Talent of Missouri falsely attributes several unflattering quotes about his opponent to the Kansas City Star. Our examination reveals that the quotes actually come from rival Claire McCaskill's political opponents and critics, not from the Star's reporters or editors.

The Star has demanded that Talent correct or withdraw the ads.



The adds in Missouri that I have heard have been nothing but negative and attack adds.

Whoops there on the “add” instead of “ad.”

But I have only listened to the radio ads. I have not heard or seen the Fox ad that people have been talking about.
