Washington Post Blogger Asks for Dirt About Newt Gingrich on Twitter
NewsBusters ^ | 11/28/2011 | Noel Sheppard

Still in the camp that doesn't believe the media are liberally biased?

Check out what the Washington Post's Aaron Blake tweeted moments ago on Twitter:

For those unfamiliar, Blake writes for the Post's The Fix political blog, hence the moniker "Fix Aaron."

As for the Post, what would one expect from a newspaper that only five months ago called for readers to sift through former Alaska governor Sarah Palin's email messages?

Why should we be surprised that they'd be looking for dirt on the current Republican presidential frontrunner?

Also of note, that retweet was from Zeke J. Miller, a politics reporter for Business Insider. Judging from another recent retweet of his, he doesn't seem to be neutral on the former Speaker either:

They’re holding on giving Romney this kind of treatment until he’s the GOP nominee. Mudslinging is the MSM’s only hope to re-elect their messiah.


@FixAaron
Aaron Blake Hey Tweeps: Looking for outlandish/incorrect predictions and quotes from Newt Gingrich’s past. Any ideas for me?

How about Freepers finding some dirt on Blake? It’s a two-way street and if you don’t watch the road, someone is going to hit you. Fair is fair, n’est pas?

Newt has so much dirt on him to the point that it would take a long time just to explain it all!

As a kid in the military stationed at the Pentagon in the early 70’s the Washington Post was the best. I read it every day.
Sad to see it become a shrll for the dem party.
Confidence? If they had a headline that the sun was cominig up in the east tomorrow I’d check it.

It doesn’t make any difference, since the Demonrats and their fifth column buttboys media skanks will make up whatever they need anyway. And they’ll have to make up some real whoppers to divert attention from the stench of the traitorous filth in the Oval Office.

Interesting on how the media is holding off on blasting Romney. They also have no interest in looking into Obama’s past.

I too would like to know about these “Journalist” personal lives. How many times have they been married? Are they cheating on their wives? Are they gay? How many partners have they had? Are they in debt? How many abortion have they had or paid for? ...... These people are exactly who Jesus was talking about when he said not to judge others. The socialist/national controlled media sit on high thinking they are the judges of the right. They see no wrong in the Barney Franks, Ted Kennedy’s of this world. They want to destroy anyone who lives by God's laws (the best they can being human) which limits there perverted fun. Though they make me so angry, I pray they open there eyes to the truth. There is a God who will judge the world for all to see.

I have a better idea. Hey, Freepers, send him tons of info on Newt. He can be sorting it out for days. And then send more. God bless his little efforts.

That has to be the most stupid reporter ever hired.

There is so much dirt, at least where conservatism is concerned, where Newt is concerned, he might as well be named Pig-Pen.

One doesn't need to "dig for dirt"...such quotes are endless, in each of the last 4 decades.

“How about Freepers finding some dirt on Blake?”

Amen. In fact, go after Axelrod hard and all the other people who are in the bag to re-elect the Creep. If we can’t cut the head off the snake, let’s separate the body from the head - same result!

Not the first time the Post has done this. In fact, it’s SOP for them.
