Gray Lady Down!

By Wyatt Earp | July 26, 2010

Remember that story in March where Democrat John Lewis claimed Tea Party protesters shouted the N-word at him while he was walking toward the ObamaCare vote? He claimed Tea Partiers called him the N-word, and the MSM ate it up, even though there was not a shred of proof to substantiate Lewis’ claims.

Most clear-thinking people knew it was a lie, and four months later even the dimmest of bulbs are begrudgingly admitting it as well. Behold, a correction from The New York Times!

The Political Times column last Sunday, about a generational divide over racial attitudes, erroneously linked one example of a racially charged statement to the Tea Party movement. While Tea Party supporters have been connected to a number of such statements, there is no evidence that epithets reportedly directed in March at Representative John Lewis, Democrat of Georgia, outside the Capitol, came from Tea Party members.

Not only did the Times bury the story on their Corrections page, but they also took another cheap shot at the Tea Partiers for good measure. And they wonder why their circulation is sagging lower than Rosie O’Donnell’s cans.

    Buried it in the corrections. May as well wrote it up, printed it and had the Corrections Editor flush it down the toilet.

    “no evidence that epithets….came from tea party members” Bullshit. How about: no evidence that alleged epithets were uttered at all.

    As she sinks, may all the lifeboats have holes in them so no career can make it to shore. I know you’ve seen me type this a thosand times but General McClellan called her….”That treasonous sheet.” and that was 146 years ago (It may have been called the New York Daily or something back then, but the same idiots different reincarnation)

    Ferrell – Don’t think they didn’t try that at first.

    Don – Well, we can’t completely exonerate the racisssssts now, can we?

    Jon – McClellan could see into the future.

    Smite – I couldn’t believe it myself!
