Scott Walker Rips ‘Lazy,’ ‘Biased’ Media for Inventing Fake Ultrasound Quote

‘When people actually hear what’s going on and they can’t win on the left on an issue, they exaggerate things, they make things up and they take them out of context’

LOESCH: "Joining me right now – Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker who I’m sure was amused by the media rage spiral over a non-existent quote. Governor Walker, I know we got you for a short time, I appreciate you joining us. Your reaction to this media freak-out, for the lack of a better thing to call it?"
WALKER: "Well, you know sometimes, there are at least some in the media who– more than biased, it’s just lazy. And in this case, I think it’s a little of both where they– you and I both know having been a part of the interview, what they said is not at all — and then you had so many of these left-wing media outlets repeat the same misquote over and over again and sometimes embellish it even more."

LOESCH: "Do you think that this is just anger from progressives over Wisconsin legislation over the ultrasounds, getting the ultrasound before an abortion, so they’re just going to make up a quote to attribute to you to have something to rage at?"
WALKER: "Oh yeah, I think they realize, when people actually hear what’s going on and they can’t win on the left on an issue, they exaggerate things, they make things up and they take them out of context. Here I pointed out, as I pointed out before I signed the law, I said ‘who’s opposed to an ultrasound?’ They tried to claim it was a certain type, I said ‘No – our law says that before someone has that procedure, they have to be given access to an ultrasound.’"
