A recent Colorado Politics story reported on Denver TV stations pulling a political ad against Jared Polis that was truly vile. It was placed by an organization ironically named “Colorado Citizens for Truth,” which came into existence on Oct 9. Full disclosure: I know Jared a bit, and I support his campaign. So, you can imagine my shock when I saw the ad aired on my local Colorado Springs station. The ad was a hit piece against Jared, which is normally fine. But the people behind “Colorado Citizens for Truth” went way beyond any normal negative ad and ventured into outright falsehoods and deeply misleading statements.
