The Washington Post hits bottom, digs

In the 1970’s, two reports stumbled upon the biggest story of the decade (handed to them by a disgruntled FBI agent.)

In 2011, that same paper does this:

The Washington Post has printed a character assassination piece targeting Issa which PJM sources confirm had been shopped around to other news outlets and blogs by the Obama administration since the House Oversight Committee hearings last week.

The administration-authored Post story attempts to claim that Rep. Issa, the chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform which issued the damning report last week about Gunwalker, had been briefed about the program a year ago and had no objections to it at that time.

The evidence for this claim? There isn’t any.

‘Gunwalker’ Goes Pravda: White House Unleashes MSM. June 23, 2011, Pajamas Media, Bob Owens

The MSM is not just in bed with the White House, it’s a full on make out session!

There is no excuse for this. Why should the MSM (and by extension the American people they claim to serve) swallow whole the Administration’s line? What did the people in charge know and when did they know it? Unlike Watergate, Gunwalker had ATF agents who did the right thing, not acting out because they were passed over.

So now the paper that brought down Nixon is helping a desperate White House. It’s poll numbers are tanking. The economy continues to “unexpectedly” decline, the public rejected them last election and our international standing is close to mud.

The Washington Post loses all credibility it had. Ever. It’s not the job for an “independent” media outlet to be an arm of this Administration. Funny, that’s why the left accuses Fox News of being for the GOP. USAToday spiked a story about Delta and Saudi Arabia. Can’t offend a major advertiser eh “McPaper”? That’s what a sell out is.

This was a long time coming, but with “their” people in the White House I guess that WaPo had to go full sell out.

Update: Mexican State AG murdered with gunwalker guns:

“Remind me how many people died due to Watergate?”
