Susan Jones shows off her stenography skills yet again in a May 14 article:
With the congressional race in western Pennsylvania still too close to call, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) nevertheless predicted the outcome on Wednesday:
"I think the candidate that's going to win this race is the candidate that ran as a pro-life, pro-gun, anti-Nancy Pelosi conservative," Ryan told a news conference. "That's the candidate that's going to win this race."
Both Conor Lamb, the Democrat, and Rick Saccone, the Republican, ran as conservatives to fill the seat vacated by a Republican who quit amid a scandal."
This is something that you're not going to see repeated," Ryan said, "because they didn't have a primary." Ryan noted that Democrats, in this special election, were able to pick a candidate who could run as a conservative."
You will have primaries in all these other races, and the primaries bring them to the left. So I just don't think that this is something that you'll see a repeat of."
Jones couldn't be bothered to fact-check what Ryan said -- too bad, because what Ryan said isn't true at all. As an actual news outlet reported:
Lamb did not run as a Trump supporter. He ran against the tax cuts, not for them. His abortion stance was a lot like that of Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) — while personally opposing abortion, he was against new restrictions on the procedure, a position that inspired a Family Research Council ad comparing him to Kim Jong Un.
But Jones isn't about facts -- she's all about stenography.
