Las Vegas political reporter Jon Ralston fact checks Sue Lowden's "Chickens for Checkups" response ad and gives it a grade of 'D' on the truth test, saying "most of it is malarkey."
In the ad, Lowden blamed Reid for taking her out of context on Chickens for Checkups. Ralston, who writes for the Las Vegas Sun and reports for NBC affiliates in Nevada,
reporting on KLAS, the CBS affiliate, adjudicates:
Taken out of context? After being given numerous chances to back off from the initial remarks, Lowden has refused to, in her own words, "back down from that system." ... The problem isn’t context, it's...a failure to communicate. Lies and dirty tricks? Not this time.
