Many have seen @SteveKingIA's viral meltdown.

King continued, made the rounds of local TV, calling comparisons with the #TreeOfLife shooter "insane, denying @washingtonpost reporting about collaborating with anti semitic websites, and defending the anti-Semitic FPO.

THREAD.
As the more complex aspects of the story break into TV especially, the mounting, well-documented evidence is presented as one side, and King's lies, avoidance, and anger is the other, with little clarity or context for audiences who haven't been reading the @washingtonpost.
I understand the limitations of TV, and I think most journalists are doing a great job with a very crowded election season and a lot of news to cover.

But this story is bigger than the election and it's important that @SteveKingIA's lies are not propagated unchallenged.
