Another congresswoman lashes out at The Hill (John Solomon's opinions now being 'reviewed')
Politico ^ | 11/19/19 | MICHAEL CALDERONE

Florida Congresswoman Val Demings questioned Tuesday whether the The Hill is “fair and unbiased” during an exchange with a reporter from the publication, the second of such incidents in recent days.

California Rep. Jackie Speier, who is also a Democrat, told a Hill reporter on Friday that it was “reprehensible” that the paper published columns by John Solomon, a conservative journalist who helped ignite the Ukraine scandal and whose work has been promoted by President Donald Trump and his allies.

**SNIP**

Though Demings did not mention Solomon specifically, the former employee’s work has come under increasing scrutiny and has put The Hill under the media spotlight. ProPublica recently explored Solomon’s relationship with associates of Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani and CNN looked Monday night at the connection between The Hill’s owner, Jimmy Finkelstein, and Trump, Giuliani and Solomon.

Cusack informed staff on Monday that The Hill is dedicated "to accurate, non-partisan reporting and standards" and would be “reviewing, updating, annotating, and when appropriate, correcting any opinion pieces [by Solomon] referenced during the ongoing congressional inquiry.”

How does someone correct an opinion? Oh, I get it. His mind wasn't right. The very same thing happened while Bronco Bama was in the White Hut, no?

The information he provides is unassailable in any case.

+2. Solomon has the stuff to back up his opinion. I read his stuff daily for sometime now.

I just surprise The Hill has let him continue there as long as he has.

They took a hard left turn several years ago and took a shortcut to Loonyville

The commenters there look like they were banned from DU for being too crazy

These leftist totalitarians constantly preach to us that “diversity is our strength”, but can’t abide any dissenting viewpoint. One single light shining in darkness blinds these close minded lemmings.

The 1st Amendment congressional committee will review his opinions and writings to ensure compliance with the needs of the state.

Unreal

Surprisingly, the Dems can still astonish me with their hypocrisy. This is the gang that had no problem with WaPo, NY Times, Salon, Atlantic, New Yorker, and whatever rag Bill Kristol used to publish lapping up the Russia hoax fairy tales served up by Fusion GPS and regurgitating them to their readers. I guess I need to get a grip and realize the left will never change.

Solomon is one of the Very Few actual Journalists left in this country. His reporting is backed by impeccable research with well documented corroboration.

His reporting blows the entire Leftist Democrat/Deep State/ MSM anti-Trump Propaganda out of the water. Therefore, he must be destroyed.

They really do think they should control all aspects of information flow.
They can’t stand it when anyone veers out of the Approved Narrative of the Ministry of Propaganda.

His fact based reports at The Hill were labeled “opinion” for quite some time. Meanwhile, guinine opinion pieces were not labeled as such there. And he was targeted by the looney bin in the comments. I guess he finally quit/got the boot from there.

The only thing that George Orwell, the writer of 1984, got wrong was the date.
