Senior HuffPost political reporter is, for some reason, no longer interested in a political story now that it’s about Obama and not Trump
Well, you can add Jennifer Bendery, senior political reporter for HuffPost, to the list of blue-checks no longer interested in that withdrawn story on kids in custody in the United States now that it’s clear that the underlying study was about conditions during the Obama administration and not under President Trump:
I deleted a tweet from yesterday that linked out to a Reuters story citing a UN report saying the US has more than 100K kids in immigration-related custody.
Reuters has withdrawn that story and said those numbers were from 2015. https://t.co/W1IIYYc60u

You’d think a senior political reporter would be interested in this story, especially since President Obama’s wingman is leading the 2020 Dem field:
You deleted a story because it made Obama look bad?

Why not call out team Obama?
Why not leave it and correct it to reflect your beloved hero OBAMA was POTUS then, so it's still a story worth reporting… one of the thousands of unflattering stories you and your ilk obviously buried back then.

It’s still newsworthy, again because of Joe Biden:
So the only reason its not newsworthy is because it was 2015 and not 2019? Interesting.

And why didn’t she cover it in 2015?
Did you have a job in news media in 2015?

Will she (or any of them) learn from this?
Did you learn ANYTHING from this?

Narrator: They will not learn from this:
Narrator: "Not only did they not learn a thing this time, they'll do it again & again & again ad nauseam. They'll never learn."
Remember the story last yr about the cages? They didn't learn squat then.
They're basically just cats chasing laser pointers into walls & over cliffs. pic.twitter.com/B1GDF6lT72
