CNS Bizarrely Blames Tollway Crashes On Transportation Secretary
Topic: CNSNews.com

Susan Jones began a Nov. 19 CNSNews.com article this way:

Brand-new express lanes on the Capital Beltway in Northern Virginia -- praised by Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood as a "model for American infrastructure" -- opened with a bang on Saturday: multiple collisions involving multiple vehicles.

Were these accidents really LaHood's fault, as she suggests? Of course not. Even Jones herself eventually reports that according to police, "every accident was caused when a driver suddenly swerved or made a sudden lane change to avoid the toll lanes." That has nothing whatsoever to do with LaHood's support for such toll lanes.

Jones also ignored the fact that the project to create these toll/express lanes was created in 2007, more than a year before the Obama administration even existed.

In other words, LaHood wasn't even present at the creation of these lanes. Yet Jones wants you to think that this is somehow his fault.

That willingness to be dishonest is how much CNS hates Obama.
