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.

These people are no more journalists than any firstgrader. They do what they were taught in school – talk bad about conservatives.
We need an Occupy the WA Post group. If I lived in DC, I would love to organize a large, loud protest group in front of the Post declaring them bigots against Republicans and conservatives. We conservatives need to rally against the media to save our Republic from these Democrat-siding slimeballs, who are not only ignoring major scandals– like Solyndra and Fast andFurious– but working hard to cover them up. They are a disgrace to and perversion of the ideal of freedom of the press.
The Washington Post did exactly the same thing to the Swift Boat Veterans. They published what purported to be a scathing review of “Unfit for Command” by Jerome Corsi, a book I had previously decided not to buy. The review presented a hotly worded, weakly argued rebuttal of the points in the book, which was in turn a rebuttal of claims made by John F. Kerry in his autobiography.
I later saw the author of Sen. Kerry’s autobiography in an interview on CSPAN calmly admit to such facts that would inevitably lead to the conclusion that the author had written a hagiography based on Sen Kerry’s diary, which was highly fictionalized. This person purported to be a historian, and yet admitted to doing no fact-checking, and to include statements he knew to be of dubious origin.
So, I bought “Unfit for Command,” and although the Washington Post reporter could not figure out what these veterans had against Sen. Kerry, I could. They said he lied, and they were specific.
Later, the Washington Post published a second article on the Swift Boat Veterans, complaining that it had previously debunked all their claims, and that they should have had the good sense to go away.
I won’t even wrap dog poop in the WaPo. Their standards aren’t up to the task. Why bother reading 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?
Birds of a feather . . .

‘“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

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 ……
