Bad Press

Standard Right-Wing Fogging Technique.

1. Have one of your hacks ask an apparently pointed question but include some false fluff details in it.
2. The respondent then gives a categorical denial that can be tossed into the echo chamber.
3. In fact the main point of the question is not deniable but because of the fluff you now have a sound bite that sounds like a denial of the main point.

Rinse and repeat.
