Just as this commentator accuses GOP of voter suppression, the bottom-of-the-screen crawl undercuts message

Just as this commentator accuses GOP of voter suppression, the bottom-of-the-screen crawl undercuts message August 8, 2016

This is rich. Ann Althouse caught a great moment in the “bottom of the screen television scrawl.” On CNN, Baltimore mayor Stephanie Rawlings was saying Republicans can only win through voter suppression in the 2016 Presidential race.

But just as the words came out of her mouth, the bottom of the screen pointed out that Democrats are the ones who have a penchant for discrimination and voter suppression in ways that  against tea party groups — in ways that actually could’ve cost Mitt Romney the election during his last run:

The scrawl said:

“Federal appeals court reinstates lawsuit against IRS says agency needs to prove it’s no longer discriminating conservative groups. Court rules conservative groups who brought 2013 lawsuit were ‘subjected to extended delay’ when applying for tax-exempt status with IRS. Court says ‘it is absurd’ to suggest unlawful delays by IRS have completely ended, considering two of the plaintiff groups still have tax-exempt applications pending….”

Heh.
