[See NewsBusters for more.] What was known as CNN Tonight is now temporarily known as Democracy in Peril and with a name such as that it was predictable that host Brianna Keilar roped all GOP-passed election laws in with "The Big Lie" on Monday, claiming them to be "cancer" and any attempt to claim they are not voter suppression laws is simply "gaslighting."

During a long-winded diatribe against the GOP, Keilar declared, "The Big Lie is a cancer. So how do you cut it out without killing the patient? Is it even possible? As it metastasizes in one Republican-led state legislature after another. Thirty-four new laws in at least 19 states according to the Brennan Center that restrict voting access that could disproportionately affect voters of color. In particular legislatures in competitive states are making it harder to cast a ballot. And key Republicans are gaslighting America."
