Don’t let the facts get in the way.
That seems to be the Mainstream Media’s modus operandi when it comes to destroying conservative politicians.
Quiner’s Diner reported on the Washington Post’s hit job on Mitt Romney in an earlier post today. Mr. Romney allegedly descended with a mob of friends on a gay classmate and forcibly cut his hair.
The classmate, John Lauber, is now deceased, but his sister, Christine, said the MSM’s account is wrong:
“The family of John Lauber is releasing a statement saying the portrayal of John is factually incorrect and we are aggrieved that he would be used to further a political agenda. There will be no more comments from the family. Even if it did happen, John probably wouldn’t have said anything. If he were still alive today, he would be furious [about the story].”
The MSM has a specific narrative in mind, that Mitt Romney is a bad guy, and they will not let the facts get in the way to reelect their man, Barack Obama.
This story is just the latest chapter in the decline of responsible journalism.
