I saw this ad during last night's football game and I was furious. I was furious because I knew the truth. And the WSJ is right; this is an effort to play on the paper's reputation on tax issues. But this is a complete misrepresentation of what was in the Wall Street Journal and the nature of the ad suggests it was an editorial piece from a conservative newspaper suggesting Romney plans on raising taxes on the middle class.
These ads are going seemingly unchallenged right now and that's what has conservatives growing increasingly nervous. The MSM media all have their own "Politifact" or "Fact Check" to respond to any conservative ad or anything any conservative says. Yes, Consevatives have talk radio but its reach doesn't compare with every major news organization in the country hawking this phony "fact-check" scam. And talk radio doesn't do it under the guise of factual reporting.
