How dismaying to learn on PBS’ Horizon that Senator McSally’s calling a professional reporter a “liberal hack” was a fundraising stunt.
Did she REALLY already have T-shirts printed up, as reported? This type of cynical move calls into question her integrity on other important issues she has addressed, such as sexual abuse in the military. There must be a more civil way to signal her newfound “loyalty” to Mr. Trump than to stoop to reality TV pranks. And what about the reputation of the reporter she smeared? Will she ever apologize? Another sad moment for civility in politics. Another nail in the coffin of bipartisanship. Another small, shameful tragedy in the bloodsport of 2020 politics.
