McConnell Accuses Media Of McCarthyism

On Monday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell threw some serious accusations at the mainstream media.

He said several media outlets of spewing "modern-day McCarthyism.” McConnell is responding to criticism he faced from the media for blocking an election-security bill.

A Washington Post op-ed described McConnell as a "Russian asset." The article went on to say McConnell was β€œdoing Russian President Vladimir Putin’s bidding." McConnell called it a β€œshameful smear and based on more lies.
