Nunes’s campaign has created its own news site, which claims to put out “the best of US, California, and Central Valley news, sports, and analysis.” The site, called “The California Republican,” is paid for by Nunes’s campaign committee, Politico reported.

One of the blurbs on the site is headlined: “Dem CA Rep roasted on CNN, proceeds to make a fool of himself.”

Nunes, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, is a frequent critic of the media.

He was last thrown into the spotlight this month for leading the charge to release a GOP memo drafted by his staff that alleges surveillance abuses at the Justice Department.
