The Democrats may deserve to lose in November. They have been terrible at trying to explain who they stand for and the larger goal of their governance. But if they lose, it should be because their policies are unpopular or ill-conceived not because millions of people believe a lie.

But no reputable news agency that is, fact-based, one that corrects its errors quickly has spread such inaccuracies.
