MSNBC’s Katy Tur, who has managed to get so much wrong in such a short amount of time as a news anchor, claimed this week that Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., voted to confirm Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. This is notable, the anchor suggested, given the Missouri Democrat last week opposed the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Just one problem: McCaskill voted against Gorsuch.

"McCaskill voted for Gorsuch and did not vote for Kavanaugh," the anchor said this week during a panel discussion on the senator’s voting record.

Nope. McCaskill definitely did not vote in favor of confirming President Trump's first Supreme Court nominee. Only three Democratic senators did – Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, and Joe Donnelly of Indiana.

Tur did not correct her mistake. But she was at least correct in saying that McCaskill, who claimed she felt "physically ill" after Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement earlier this year, voted against Kavanaugh.

Amazingly enough, during the exact same panel discussion, one of Tur’s guests, conservative radio host John Hancock, also claimed McCaskill voted to confirm Chief Justice John Roberts. That's not true, either. Roberts was confirmed in 2005. McCaskill didn't become a senator until January 2007.

Tur corrected Hancock’s error on-air … but only after her production team received an on-the-spot fact-check from a member of her student audience. Maybe give that kid an anchor job?
