What Wisconsinites are Reading and Watching: Ron Johnson Caught Lying to Voters

 

By - Jul 8th, 2021 12:22 pm

Following recent CNN reporting, news outlets across Wisconsin and the country are highlighting that Ron Johnson was this week caught lying to voters about his views on climate change.

While Johnson last week told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, “I am not a climate change denier,” CNN reported Johnson was caught on tape in early June telling a GOP audience that climate change is “bullshit.”

The unapologetic dishonesty from Johnson on this topic — which comes through consistently across news coverage — underscores for Wisconsin voters that Johnson is likely prepared to lie about anything (and it’s not the first time).

Here’s a look at headlines in Wisconsin and across the country:
