The Washington Post and Perry Bacon Jr Can't Handle The Truth

This really shouldn't come as a surprise at this point. The Washington Post has done it again, ignoring the truth and misleading its readers with blatant falsehoods.

After refusing to run the op-ed authored by three Democratic members of the House Judiciary committee last week on Sunday the Post claimed that:

[N]one of his 2008 rivals or fellow Democrats in Congress has embraced Kucinich's latest liberal cause: the impeachment of Vice President Cheney. Arguing that Cheney gave misleading claims in the run-up to the Iraq war in 2002 and about Iran this year, he said in April that the "vice president's conduct of office has been destructive to the founding purposes of our nation."
Perry Bacon Jr passed off this falsehood in his profile of Dennis Kucinich in the Post's 'The Rest of the Field' addendum to the 'Front Runners' profile series that ran over the past week.

Despite the fact that Representatives Wexler, Gutierrez, and Baldwin have joined Mr. Kucinich in calling for impeachment hearings for Mr. Cheney, the Post and Mr. Bacon state otherwise.

The Post and the mainstream media in general continue to perfect their ostrich imitation, burying their heads ever deeper into the sand.

They not only ignore the truth, but comfort themselves by burying it with lies as well.
