That is how news networks ensure that political hacks cannot use their airwaves maliciously as conduits of lies, misinformation, and misrepresentations. Don Lemon deserves kudos on this one.

"These voters understand that there is a group of Americans that look down on them and don't understand them and don't care," Former RNC Chief of Staff Mike Shields said as he continued lying and misrepresenting. "I'll finish on this. What it reminds me of is a few years ago on Capitol Hill, a story came out about Democrats. They were going down to a NASCAR race in North Carolina to do some kind of study, and they went and got vaccinations for it.

They were visiting people who were in hospital and healthcare facilities.' And so they figured it wasn't, they didn't have to do it, but it would be better if they were immunized. Thank you. We'll be right back."
