Grossman: Kirk's Claims Weren't "Mistakes," They Were "Exaggerations"

Last week, we  spent some time cataloging the barrage of media criticism GOP Senate nominee Mark Kirk received after making excuses for needlessly mischaracterizing his own military record. The Sun-Times' Kate Grossman gave her two-cents on WTTW's Chicago Tonight last Friday, questioning why Kirk keeps suggesting his embellishments were accidental. "The part that [the Sun-Times editorial board] was disappointed with is that he just calls these mistakes," she said. "These are not mistakes. These are exaggerations." Watch it (full video of the panel discussion is available here):

Alexi Giannoulias' campaign has also been tracking the various pundit reactions on their YouTube channel.
