“We’ll chalk this up as another distortion in the political ‘war on women,’” Lori Robertson writes on FactCheck.
Despite the thrashing of the latest “war on women” claims from online fact-checkers earlier in the week, the progressive MoveOn posted a full-page ad in Politico Thursday attacking Republicans:

The beating of a dead, two Pinocchio-rated horse caught the attention of NPR and Anderson Cooper for his “Keeping Them Honest” segment. Justin Ruben appeared on AC360 Thursday where Cooper criticized the ad’s distortion of facts regarding the debate surrounding cuts to fund the latest student loan extension.
“You only seem to be targeting Republicans because it meets your political agenda,” Cooper accused.
