Dems pounced on Ryan’s statement in his speech about the GM plant.
CNN and MSNBC jumped all over it like a pack of wolves even descending on WI governor, Scott Walker, in a feeding frenzy led by Schultz Maddow, Al Sharpton. In a free-for-all trying to rip the governor apart cutting him off and talking over him.
But even CNN now has to correct its coverage with this:
CNN was finally corrected by Ari Fliescher on air, while Ed Schultz at MSNBC dramatically still hammered away.
On a related note, Howard Fineman said Team Obama has to turn Ryan into a big liar asap. That sure sounds like its a problem for Obama.

For those of you who insist that Paul Ryan misstated the the details surrounding the closing of the GM plant in Janesville, Wisconsin wipe the egg off your face, turn off MSNBC and follow this link. Immediately after Ryan’s speech Ed Schultz, Rachel Maddow, and Al Sharpton ganged up on Scott Walker in an on air interview to make the point that the plant had closed in late 2008, during the Bush administration. Not so.
“General Motors will end medium-duty truck production in Janesville on April 23, four months to the day after the plant stopped building full-size sport utility vehicles.
About 100 employees associated with the line learned of the layoffs Wednesday.
April will mark the end of vehicle production at the Janesville plant that traces its roots to 1919 and the Samson Model M tractor. Chevrolet production started in Janesville in 1923.”
