The Washington Post could have spared themselves a lot of embarrassment on Wednesday if only they had done some basic fact checking instead of acting as robotic stenographers for Democrat talking points. And the talking point in question was the fake news that Republicans legislators in North Carolina broke rules to vote for a budget override while their Democrat colleagues were nobly attending a 911 ceremony.

Too conveniently lazy to check the FACTS before rushing to publish about the supposedly nasty Republicans.

The Washington Post has become a joke. Why would Bezos allow them to embarrass him like that. High School papers have more credibility.

So-called “fact check” is only done on Republicans and it really isn’t a fact check. It’s just a device to try to convince the reader that the media spin and Democrat propaganda has some basis.

The truth is unimportant, get the Rat story out, let it spread and the truth is whispered. Mission accomplished. The Post is not the least bit embarrassed.

One hundred percent right. It’s the shock point of the story. The retraction doesn’t matter. But aside from brainwashed idiots and true marxists, fewer people believe their tripe. I believe Bezos gives bonuses for biggest whopper.

Seventy-seven percent of American’s polled don’t trust the MSMLSD bunch.

Bezos is not capable of embarrassment. He is intent on becoming a power player in Democrat politics to further his wealth accumulation.

It wasn’t like it wasn’t intentional.

They wanted to get the smear out there. It’s a non-story now and no one is paying attention now.

Their goal accomplished.

Nope. It’s the other way ‘round. The Democrat Party is the political arm of the LSM.

All the memes on Fakebook have already been disseminated and seen by the sheep.

The outrage was already accomplished. No memes correcting the lie will be sent out.

Facts above Truth, as Uncle Joe Biden calls it. That’s today’s media, press, and government propagandist agencies.
