A political action committee backing Republican Gov. Mike Parson is raising money with a new video highlighting his attacks on a Missouri newspaper.

The video released Thursday is a response to the St. Post-Dispatch's discovery of a flaw in a state agency’s cybersecurity.

The 55-second video released from Uniting Missouri praises Parson for standing up to what the video called Missouri's “fake news factory."

The newspaper last week found a security flaw that allowed the public to view the Social Security numbers of thousands of teachers through a state website.

The Post-Dispatch alerted the state and held off on reporting on the problem until it was fixed.
