  • Embarrassing: WashPost Writes Clinton 'Allegedly Cheated on His Wife'

    NewsBusters.org ^ | August 21, 2016 | Tim Graham
    Sunday’s Washington Post Magazine has two cover stories, one for Bill Clinton and one (if you turn it upside down on the other side) for Melania Trump. As expected, Bill Clinton is going to get a gushier treatment. Post writer Neely Tucker is so tender to the president that he mangles a fact, and the copy editors (also tender hearts) allowed it. “Fact Checker” Glenn Kessler will not be assigned to this story. Tucker wrote, “He allegedly cheated on his wife, repeatedly, even in the Oval Office, and with a young woman who wasn’t that much older than their daughter.”This...

    Theres a reason why the Washington Post is not-so-affectionately tagged the Washington Compost by its fast-growing pool of distrustful detractors. That reason is embodied in both the person (and the journalism) of one Jonathan Capehart, homosexual activist, Washington Post mercenary-hack and editorial board member. Capehart is a liar and, by extension, so is the Washington Post.Now, when I say that Capehart is a liar, I dont mean it in the pejorative sense. Its not an ad hominem attack. Its a fact, supported by the overwhelming weight of the evidence. In the journalism biz, a reputation for truth and accuracy is...

    Hillary Clinton received a dreaded 'four-Pinocchio' rating from the Washington Post the worst score possible for truthfulness after claiming on Sunday that the FBI defended her honesty in the classified email scandal that has plagued her presidential campaign for more than 16 months. FBI director James Comey testified in a July 7 congressional hearing that multiple statements the Democratic presidential nominee made to the public were untrue. But in a rare Fox News Channel interview on Sunday, Clinton claimed that Comey 'said my answers were truthful, and what Ive said is consistent with what I have told the...

In an April 26 email to Mark Paustenbach, the DNCs deputy communications director, the papers White House Bureau Chief Juliet Eilperin wrote: Subject: just FYI, the story is running on A1 tomorrow Dear Mark, I think you all will be totally fine with it.

    They flat-out lied about his Orlando comments. And they know it too. You have heard in the past few days that Donald Trump has banned the Washington Post from covering his campaign. He has done no such thing. He can do no such thing. The Post can write about Trumps campaign every day, and they have continued to do so. What Trump has done is revoked the press credentials of the Posts reporters who want to attend his campaign events as working media. And had I been Trump after the events of the past few days, I would have done...

    Legendary reporter Bob Woodward says Donald Trump is taking a harsher stance against The Washington Post than even President Nixon did during the Watergate scandal. "The Nixon White House did not formally pull press credentials of the Post" when the newspaper was reporting on the scandal that eventually forced Nixon to resign, Woodward said Tuesday, according to NBC News. He added that Nixon did exclude the Post from covering social events at the White House, though. Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, on Monday said he was revoking The Washington Post's press credentials over the newspaper's "dishonest reporting." "Based on...

Throughout the piece, Post feature writer David Montgomery paired apparently outrageous quotes from Donald Trump (as well as Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, and Mike Huckabee) with Post rebuttals with all-American Muslim teenagers in Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. It was all about "Islamophobia" clashing with American values: Yet the wave of Islamophobia had brought on a new level of...

In this case, the Post's editorial board managed to severely criticize Venezuela for being a complete economic failure despite have the largest known oil reserves of any nation in the world. It had to be an incredibly disastrous economic system to bring such a nation so low that now it is running out of food, toilet paper, and beer.

    This month, President Obama will become the first incumbent American president to visit the Japanese city of Hiroshima since the United States dropped an atomic bomb on Aug. 6, 1945. That bomb - and a second atomic blast on Nagasaki on Aug. 9 - effectively ended World War II; Japan surrendered six days after the Hiroshima bombing. However, the human costs were huge. Estimates of those killed go as high as 150,000, and even for those who survived, it was a hellish, life-altering experience.

Sometime Sunday evening, somebody either Romano or an editor stealth-edits the obituary by eliminating the lead paragraph in question altogether. Despite the major change, Romano nor an editor inform readers any alterations to the piece were made Romano...

Even if you didn't like Reagan, taking shots at Nancy Reagan in 2016, after her death, is really despicable. Post writer Lois Romano decided to write a ridiculously nasty smear of Ronald Reagan and his wife as the obit. About half the content seems to be about how much money Nancy Reagan spent on things. By paragraph 3, Lois Romano starts attacking Nancy Reagan. "As first lady from 1981 to 1989, Mrs. Reagan had a knack...

It's almost fun to watch them squirm and even become unhinged at the idea of Trump becoming the Republican nominee, let alone the occupant of the Oval Office. The Washington Post's latest anti-Trump tirade was classic media bias on full display. It tells the GOP leadership to "do everything in your power" to stop the "unthinkable" of a Trump presidency from happening because...

    There is an unspoken rule in editorial cartooning that a politician's children are off-limits. People don't get to choose their family members so obviously it's unfair to ridicule kids for their parent's behavior while in office or on the campaign trail- besides, they're children. There are plenty of adults in the political world who act childish, so there is no need for an editorial cartoonist to target actual children.I've kept to that rule, except when the children are adults themselves or choose to indulge in grown-up activities (as the Bush twins did during the George W Bush presidency). But when...

He achieved that goal by combining compelling news stories based on aggressive reporting with engaging feature pieces of a kind previously associated with the best magazines. His charm and gift...

    Seth Rogen and Judd Apatow are not laughing over a film critic's op-ed that suggested their movies could have influenced the mass murder in Santa Barbara, Calif. In a column published Sunday in the Washington Post, Ann Hornaday blamed the rage that fueled mass murderer Elliot Rodger's rampage which left six dead and 13 wounded on the entertainment industry, in which the killer's father worked as a second unit director. "How many students watch outsized frat-boy fantasies like (Rogen's) Neighbors and feel, as Rodger did, unjustly shut out of college life that should be full of sex and...

    The death-penalty debate goes on. After a piece that I wrote about the debate last week, National Reviews Charles C. W. Cooke wrote a response, followed later by a much stronger attack by the Washington Posts Radley Balko. Cookes response was philosophical and drew a distinction between killing someone in self-defense and using the death penalty, though given the evidence that the death penalty deters murders and thus saves lives, that distinction isnt as clear as he thinks. Balko, a blogger/reporter for the Washington Post, based his reply on empirical evidence. He puts a lot of faith in studies by...
  • Married ex-Washington Post executive found dead at a gay hot spot with a pipe and needle

    A married former Washington Post vice president has been found dead in a gay bar in Manhattan with drug paraphernalia near his body. Guyon Knight was found dead around 8am on Saturday in a bar called the Out in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood of New York. The New York Post reported the circumstances of the 64-year-old's death, saying that he was seen with a needle, a pipe and unspecified pills near his body. The club where Knight was found describes itself as being gay-but-straight friendly, but a person familiar with the bar told MailOnline that it is mostly frequented by...

    Former Washington Post managing editor Robert Kaiser is retiring at age 70, and he’s very cranky about how conservatives have destroyed government and Washington collegiality. This tells you a lot about what kind of liberal edits and massages the Post every day. Kaiser is moving to New York, and on the front of the Sunday Outlook he described how “Republicans lost their minds” and “Democrats lost their souls.” In essence, both sides are now too conservative for Bob, starting with a debt-limit vote: On Oct. 16, 162 members of Congress, 144 in the House and 18 in the Senate, voted...
  • The Washington Post's Anti-Thanksgiving Screed

    It should come as no surprise that the left is inherently anti-gratitude. As an anti-human, redistributionist world-view, it derives its power by instilling in people gratitudes antithesis: Entitlement. The Washington Posts Monday column by Brian Palmer, The Environmental Costs of a Thanksgiving Meal, is a case study, attacking the traditions enjoyed by Americans for centuries as a reminder that what we receive at the hands of our Creator is often more than we deserve. Of course, that was before climate change. Or, to quote Palmer: Fossil fuels changed that equation. What follows is a loosely annotated analysis of the...

  • Jeff Bezos buys out the Washington Post. This is Nixon's revenge on the mainstream media

    Somewhere down there, Richard Nixon must be rubbing his hands with glee. The Graham family have been forced to sell The Washington Post the liberal newspaper that helped bring down Tricky Dick with its coverage of the Watergate burglary. Nixon hated the Post for the not unreasonable reason that it hated him. It wasn't just the pursuit of Watergate that irritated, but the climate that the daily helped create of liberal disdain for his presidency its insistence that anyone with a fully functioning heart and brain voted Democrat. That attitude wouldn't have mattered if print didn't enjoy such...

    Washington Post ^ | August 5, 2013
    The Washington Post Co. has agreed to sell its flagship newspaper to Amazon.com founder and chief executive Jeffrey P. Bezos, ending the Graham familys stewardship of one of Americas leading news organizations after four generations. Bezos, whose entrepreneurship has made him one of the worlds richest men, will pay $250 million in cash for The Post and affiliated publications to the Washington Post Co., which owns the newspaper and other businesses. Seattle-based Amazon will have no role in the purchase; Bezos himself will buy the news organization and become its sole owner when the sale is completed, probably within 60...

    Edward Snowden, the 29-year-old former intelligence worker who leaked details of NSA data collection to journalists, first approached the Washington Post with his trove of information, The Post's Barton Gellman reported on Sunday. But when the paper wouldn't meet Snowden's conditions, he went to The Guardian's Glenn Greenwald, who first published the story about the NSA collecting Verizon customers' phone records. The Post did get the PRISM story in the end, and along with it Gellman's rather thrilling account of dealing with his mysterious source, a former NSA analyst and Booz Allen Hamilton employee who used the code name Verax....
