[See NewsBusters for more.] CNN White House correspondent John Harwood joined Friday's CNN Newsroom to peddle the media's latest favorite talking point: that insisting election laws are followed is just a Republican tactic to ensure that Democratic votes are not counted.

The context this time was an 8th Circuit ruling on Thursday that held that Minnesota's secretary of state does not have the power to rewrite the state's election law stating that absentee ballots must be received on Election Day in order to count. This win for constitutional government was described by host Poppy Harlow in partisan terms, "But the Republicans just won a huge court victory overnight when it comes to voting in that state."
