‘Holy crap’! WaPo should be utterly ashamed of ‘absolutely mindblowing’ character assassination attempt on Hillbilly Elegy author J.D. Vance; UPDATED

Try it you will like it

As Twitchy told you earlier, pro-abort Marissa Brostoff vomited up a historically illiterate garbage piece for the Washington Post trying to tie the American pro-life movement to white supremacy.

It was bad enough that she willfully ignored the American abortion movement’s shamefully racist origins in order to push her false narrative. But she managed to make it even worse by flinging vile and quite possibly libelous mud at “Hillbilly Elegy” author J.D. Vance:

Without sufficient evidence to support her narrative, Brostoff resorted to manufacturing it, maligning an innocent man’s character in the process.

If this isn’t journalistic malpractice, we don’t know what is.

The Washington Post apparently doesn’t see a need to not be lazy. As long as they keep fanning the flames, they’re doing their job as far as they’re concerned.

Works every time.

Update:

Let’s all give the Washington Post a big hand, ladies and gentlemen:

Here’s the editor’s note they’ve tacked onto the end:

Couldn’t even muster anything resembling an apology, WaPo? Really?

Not only does that note not make up for their smear job, but removing the passage about Vance undercuts the premise of Brostoff’s despicable piece.

As Ramesh Ponnuru writes:

But even this new conclusion makes no sense. The smear of Vance was necessary to appear to justify the comment about the “conservative mainstream”; now the alleged justification for the comment is a remark by some white nationalist you’ve never heard of.

The Washington Post’s credibility dies in broad daylight.
