Chris Hayes Swats Ken Cuccinelli For Lying About Planned Parenthood

Chris Hayes is getting better at holding them accountable and not just spewing talking points.

Chris Hayes dropped a question on former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli that needs to be asked of Carly Fiorina.

Essentially, he asked if the grand jury's decision in Texas to clear Planned Parenthood and indict David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt after their investigation into possible wrongdoing on Planned Parenthood's part would change the calculus on how Republicans were approaching abortion politics.

Cuccinelli tried to take the view from 20,000 feet, using the argument that we as a country might not want to condone "selling aborted babies."

Hayes jumped right in on that, swatting back the allegation, reminding Cuccinelli that it was now a matter of fact that Planned Parenthood was absolutely not selling anything, and certainly not "baby parts."

The Cooch didn't much care for the correction, but I did. I'm glad to see Chris Hayes hitting back on that spurious allegation, and wish every cable news host would start doing it.

Can you help us out?
