Progressive Super PAC “American Bridge 21st Century” announced the launch of their Spin Project “Correct the Record”, a dedicated research, tracking and rapid response communications project to defend Progressives in preparation for the 2016 Presidential election.

Their website,  http://correcttherecord2016.org will employ a dedicated war room staff charged with providing a rapid response spin to fact based attacks from Conservatives, utilizing traditional and new media tactics to promote the progressive truth and circulate its spin based propaganda to the progressive media, allied progressive organizations, and directly to its low information “Occupy” base.

Chairman of American Bridge Super PAC is David Brock, founder of the progressive media group Media Matters.

Top Organizations contributing to American Bridge Super PAC during the 2012 election cycle were:

The Puppet Master himself, George Soros $1,000,000
American Fedn of St/Cnty/Munic Employees $575,000
AFL-CIO Workers Voices PAC $200,000
National Education Assn $200,000
Service Employees International Union $200,000
Filmmaker Woody Allen even contributed $500

If anything, it should be fun to watch the progressives spin their way out of the mess they’ve created going into the 2014 midterms and leading up to the 2016 Presidential election.

SuperPac Anti-Romney Ad SO Bad Even MSNBC Condemns It!

This morning on The Morning Joe, even Mika Brzeznski called out the White House for lying about knowledge of the Priorities USA ad, which implies Joe Soptic’s wife’s death was due to Mitt Romney closing GST Steel.

Stephanie Cutter, Obama’s campaign manager, denied knowing anything about Mr. Soptic’s story even though she hosted a press conference call with him three months ago.

The ad has been proven to be materially false. Mitt Romney was not in charge of Bain Capital when GST Steel closed. Prior to it’s closure Mr. Soptic was offered a buyout, which he declined. His wife had health insurance for two years after it’s closure and her death was six years after the plant closed! Notice in the MSNBC segment that Mr. Soptic is wearing the same shirt in both an Obama administration ad and the Priorities USA ad. This seems to beg the question, were the ads shot on the same day?

It is illegal for a campaign to coordinate with a SuperPac on message or advertising.

It’s obvious from their demeanor that they are loath to do it, but kudos to MSNBC and the Morning Joe for doing the right thing!
