The days when journalists wouldn’t respond to officials who insult them, lie about them, degrade them, or otherwise slam their professionalism are fading.
Tancredo posts wildly inaccurate meme about African Americans.
Setting aside that in order to be “born without a father” a child would have to be the product of artificial insemination or have a deceased biological father, (and I suspect that number is quite small), let’s examine what Tancredo’s meme was likely trying to impart, which is the percentage of African American children born into single-parent households without a father. As it generally happens, the meme falls apart under scrutiny. The 72% figure was likely taken from the statistic that 73% of African American children are born to unwed mothers. The implication is that 73% of them don’t have a father in their life, but “unwed” doesn’t mean the father isn’t living with the mother and child. The latest figures available (2014) show that 66% of AA households are single-parent. Even this number is misleading, as many of those households have the father as the only parent.

I’ve been trying to convince journalists to find out why state senate candidate Nancy Doty thinks Sarah Palin gave a “Spot on” speech in Denver, in which the former Alaska governor raved about Donald Trump. (Here’s a funny video to emphasize the point.)
Tancredo says he’d vote for Morgan Carroll but later changes his mind
At this point, nothing about Tom Tancredo should surprise me, but my jaw bounced off the floor when he said Saturday he’d vote for state Sen. Morgan Carroll over U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman.

How many conservatives can Coffman piss off before he loses an election?
A couple weeks ago, former Rep. Tom Tancredo skewered Rep. Mike Coffman in his weekly Breitbart column, writing thet the “only thing authentic about [Coffman] is his passionate desire to keep that House Member pin on his lapel.”
Q) Why don’t Gunnison Republicans fact-check the garbage on their Facebook page? A) They would have nothing to post
Seems like these county GOP Facebook page admins are allergic to fact-checking. They probably don’t even care if they are wrong as long as the fact-averse base buys it.
