[See NewsBusters for more.] CNN Newsroom attempted to come to the rescue of Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe on Tuesday as it was alleged that his now infamous views on education have been "spun out of control."

After being asked by host Victor Blackwell how Republican Glenn Youngkin has made education a central part of his message, national politics report Eva McKend stated he "has landed on this closing argument that it is a fundamental right in Virginia of parents to be engaged in their children's education and that his opponent, Democratic nominee Terry McAuliffe doesn't believe that. Now, that is not the case. A comment McAuliffe made at a debate in September has sort of been spun out of control."
