<p>In a report for Tuesday&#39;s <em>CBS This Morning</em> on the political fallout from the Obama administration&#39;s mishandling of the Ebola crisis, correspondent Chip Reid touted a Democratic attack line being used against Republicans in the midterm campaign: <strong>&quot;Some Democrats are firing back, claiming that Republican spending cuts have made the problem worse....An independent liberal group called The Agenda Project has even released a new ad with the tag line, &#39;Republican Cuts Kill.&#39;&quot;</strong></p>

<p>After playing a clip of the <a href="http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2014/10/13/ad_blames_gop_budget_…; target="_blank">nasty ad</a>, Reid didn&#39;t bother to mention that <em>The Washington Post</em> completely dismantled the false accusation. Fact-checker <a href="http://newsbusters.org/blogs/tom-blumer/2014/10/15/wapos-kessler-gives-…; target="_blank">Glenn Kessler reported</a> on October 15: &quot;The absurd claim that only Republicans are to blame for cuts to Ebola research....Whose idea was sequestration? It was originally a White House proposal....For fiscal year 2015, the documents show, it was the Obama White House that proposed to cut the NIH&#39;s budget from the previous year.&quot;</p>
