On Friday night, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow took Fox News Channel anchor Megyn Kelly to task for a deeply inaccurate story Kelly ran on Tuesday alleging that Democrats in Colorado are stealing the 2014 election by allowing people to print their ballots at home and hand them over to political operatives.
Mediaite reported that on Tuesday, Kelly breathlessly reported on “a new law” in Colorado that would allow Democrats to sway “a critical Senate race” because it “literally allows residents to print ballots from their home computers, then encourages them to turn ballots over to collectors.”
According to Maddow, the only people who can print their ballots on home computers and mail them in are active duty military personnel who are stationed abroad. This option is available to service personnel from all 50 states.
For whatever reasons, though, said Maddow, “Fox has now decided that in the state of Colorado, that’s terrifying, even if it doesn’t terrify them anywhere else in the country.”

Trump once again suggests the Central Park Five are guilty: ‘You have people on both sides of that’
During a brief Q&A with the press on Tuesday, President Donald Trump once again appeared to suggest that he still believes the Central Park Five are guilty.
"You have people on both sides of that," he told reporters. "They admitted their guilt."
Trump has repeatedly tried to worm his way out of condemning racism with this sort of language — most infamously when he said there were "very fine people on both sides" of a neo-Nazi demonstration in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Former general rips ‘impulsive, badly-educated president tweeting out foreign policy’
President Donald Trump was slammed on MSNBC by a former four-star Army general for his foreign policy blunders.
MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace interviewed Barry McCaffrey on "Deadline: White House" on Tuesday.
"This picture of constant gyrations around the deliberations around Iran seems to be fulfilling the old expression, 'when America sneezes, the world catches a cold,'" Wallace noted.
"Nicolle, I’ve followed these foreign policy and national security policy issues for the better part of fifty years, you almost have to be at a loss for words for what's going on," McCaffrey replied.
