    WaPo – We’ll just act like our hit piece on Marco Rubio was true

    WaPo – We’ll just act like our hit piece on Marco Rubio was true

    I will not repeat everything about how The Washington Post misstated Marco Rubio’s record in order to portray Rubio as having misrepresented how his parents came to the U.S. and whether they were exiles.

    But true to form, WaPo not only is not backing down, it’s doubling down by doing what the MSM does best when attacking conservatives — simply pretending that the WaPo prior report was correct, ignoring those who called WaPo to task, and considering it case closed (h/t HotAir):

    That ethnic calculus was further complicated by records, reported by The Washington Post last week, showing that Rubio had incorrectly portrayed his parents as exiles who fled Cuba after the rise of Fidel Castro.

    The Miami Herald examined WaPo’s conclusion, and found that it was WaPo not Rubio who was misleading the public on this issues, but none of that matters to WaPo. It just keeps repeating its own misleading conclusion now as supposed historical fact.

    And it is a falsehood we will see repeated in other forms as to the eventual Republican nominee, whoever that person may be. It’s the way WaPo does it, invent a false story about a Republican, ignore all evidence to the contrary, and then just keep repeating it.

    Why don’t you run this by Jen Rubin, and ask her how she can continue to allow her name to be associated with such a dishonest organization?

    ‘“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”‘

    “It’s the way WaPo does it, invent a false story about a Republican, ignore all evidence to the contrary, and then just keep repeating it.”

    Perception is reality and that is what WaPo is doing. The truth be damned.

    WaPo (and of course the rest of “Tne Obama Media Group) has credibility issues.

    In the land of the noted
    Washingto Expert talking heads, WaPo and NYT have subscription recruit drives at one of the local grocery stores. Understand it’s not that I’m “RUDE” when I ask
    “Who are you, again?”

    Whenever I wonder if I’m too rough on them I remind myself of the “Neo-conservative” question an interviewer. To me that’s one of those anti-semitic [Anti-Israel] code words used by people who ……
