The Washington Post Is Not Objective, According to Soros-Funded Group

Posted on | October 30, 2011 | 5 Comments

The top headline at Memeorandum:

Washington Post Discards All Journalistic
Standards In Attack on Social Security

This article is from a shady left-wing group, the Center for Economic and Policy Research, whose funders include George Soros’s Open Society Institute, as well as the Ford and Rockefeller foundations among other tax-free “philanthropies.” The target of the CEPR’s wrath is an article by Lori Montgomery:

The debt fallout: How Social Security
went ‘cash negative’ earlier than expected

Evidently, Montgomery tells a story that contradicts the preferred narrative of the Left, because the CEPR’s attack on her was seconded by Paul Krugman, David Atkins, John Amato, et al., who would have us believe that there is no fiscal or actuarial problem with Social Security.

No, according to the voices of the United Liberalism Tabernacle Choir, it all boils down to a simple slogan: We Need More Taxes on the Evil Rich.

    Yeah I read that.  The same media that could not fall over a story of Clinton now has no trouble researching stories about Cain.

    See, WaPo, like most old media, got rid of their layers of editors long ago, and every now and then some accurate story slips through the cracks, which aggravates the Left no end.  They tolerate no variance from The Narrative.

    Well, actually they did apparently have a lot of trouble, since they have no source on the record and no allegation beyond “making people uncomfortable.”

    Hell, I’m sure he makes some federal employees uncomfortable, too – they know he won’t need them.
