Desperately Seeking Scandal: Democratic Perspective co-hosts Mike Cosentino and Steve Williamson discuss the Republican Party’s use of scandal-mongering as a political tool.

Fox News doesn’t care that voter fraud doesn’t really exist, that the Solyndra business plan made sense in the solar panel market as it was when they received a federal loan, or that Susan Rice’s early comments on the murder of four Americans in Benghazi accurately reflected what was known at the time she made them. They’re not in the truth business, they’re in the obstruction business.
