Sonny Hostin Claims, Without Evidence, That the Republican Party Is Planning to Change the Voting Age to 28, on The View, a Program Produced Under the Aegis of ABC " " " News " " "

David Strom has a fiery rant about this.

Don't ignore that second clip, because something very interesting struck me as I watched it. Sunny Hostin didn't accidentally make her comment about Republicans plotting to raise the voting age to 28-an impossibility because the voting age is actually set in the Constitution by the 26th Amendment-she was reading from a script. Watch the clip. This was no slip up. It was planned.

It was a talking point, clearly put out by somebody a lot smarter than Sunny. She didn't look up the voting statistics of younger voters--she was given a set of talking points to get out there. The powers-that-be, and in this case it was probably the producers of the show, wanted her to say that. I have done enough political talk shows to see my liberal opponents read off a set of talking points sent them by the propagandists. (I never did that because talking points are usually written by people who think they are smarter than they are).

Ben Domenech and Nick Fondacaro bring the thunder as well.

Ben Domenech @bdomenech

One thing to make a mistake, it's another to just make election fraud claims without any basis. Stop. Lying. The House of Mouse @Disney should understand that eventually you won't be able to promo your latest Wakanda Forever crap through people who openly lie about elections.

Claiming falsely that Republicans want to elevate the voting age to 28 as
@sunny just did is damaging to our democracy, the fairness of elections, the trust in our institutions, and more. She should be fired. It is heinous to allow her back on air after such an egregious lie.

Is @ABC @ABCPolitics really okay with this? Do they not understand how awful this is? This woman @sunny just literally lied to the entire country about the nature of our voting electorate under the constitution. You're okay with this?
