The corporate press continues to get worse.
Outlets sacrificed their credibility to attempt a soft coup against Donald Trump, and it’s been downhill ever since.
Now The Washington Post made this embarrassing mistake in its coverage of George Floyd.
The Washington Post, where democracy supposedly dies in darkness, has been a complete mess lately.
The paper empowered hack journalist Taylor Lorenz to release private information on a Twitter account that had gained huge traction by exposing the insanity of the Left.
Now, The Post ran a memorial for the two-year anniversary of George Floyd’s death, and the paper reported that Floyd had been “shot” by the police.
WaPo writes that George Floyd "was shot & killed in police custody."
He was never shot. He died of cardiopulmonary arrest & official autopsy found nothing to "support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation." His blood had 11 ng/mL of fentanyl.https://t.co/xtqA23zfk3 pic.twitter.com/27QapU2zaK

It’s somewhat understandable how The Post could make such an embarrassing mistake.
The Democrat Media Complex has pre-packaged narratives about the police ready to go.
The Left feed on officer-involved deaths.
During the 2020 riots, anti-police sentiment raged out of control, and the fans were flamed by the so-called mainstream media.
The Post has been terrible on other stories, as well.
The paper was one among many that spread the lie that Kyle Rittenhouse was a white supremacist shooter who crossed state lines with an illegal rifle in order to hunt Black Lives Matter protesters.
Not a word of that narrative was true, but it was spread far and wide.
Some truly negligent outlets even said that Rittenhouse shot black protesters; everyone he shot was white.
The Post is the same paper that stealth-edited a profile piece on Kamala Harris because the story included a passage that painted Harris in a horrible light.
Harris mocked the living conditions of prisoners, comparing them to Oliver Twist characters begging for water.
The Post has been caught stealth-editing stories in the past.
As for the two-year anniversary of Floyd’s death, the country is still reeling from the damage wrought by far-left rioters.
In 2020, the murder rate increased by 30%, the largest one-year jump in history.
And the violent crime problem remains today.
San Francisco and Los Angeles are attempting to recall progressive prosecutors who have implemented pro-crime policies that have made parts of the cities unlivable.
Americans can thank the media for much of the carnage they have had to endure, and The Post is one of the most responsible.
The Washington Post was finally forced to reveal the horrifying actions the COVID regime took against Americans
It will take years to undo the damage of the pandemic.
As many predicted, the response was worse than the virus.
And The Washington Post was forced to report on the horrifying thing the COVID regime did.
Approved health experts and Democrat politicians milked COVID for as long as they could.
They didn’t want to give up the temporary power and control that allowed them to do almost anything.
Epidemiologists who argued in favor of focused protection over blanket lockdowns were drowned out, ignored, and even intentionally smeared in the corporate-controlled press.
But as it turns out, they were right.
School closures have done unimaginable damage to children’s educational development, and the truth is beginning to come out.
“The COVID-19 pandemic caused historic learning setbacks for America’s children, sparing no state or region as it erased decades of academic progress and widened racial disparities, according to results of a national test that provide the sharpest look yet at the scale of the crisis,” The Washington Post reported. “Across the country, math scores saw their largest decrease ever. Reading scores dropped to 1992 levels. Nearly four in 10 eighth graders failed to grasp basic math concepts. Not a single state saw a notable improvement in their average test scores, with some simply treading water at best.”
“Those are the findings from the National Assessment of Educational Progress — known as the “nation’s report card” — which tested hundreds of thousands of fourth and eighth graders across the country this year,” the report continued. “It was the first time the test had been given since 2019, and it’s seen as the first nationally representative study of the pandemic’s impact on learning.”
Hindsight is 20/20, but physicians and educators were screaming from the mountaintops back in 2020 that this would happen if schools were closed for extended periods of time.
But the corrupt left-wing teachers’ unions were interested in keeping schools closed as leverage for political ambitions.
Meanwhile, teachers and school board members who advocated for lockdowns were caught enrolling their own kids in private schools that remained open.
Perhaps the most infuriating part about the developmental loss is all the lies put forward by the American Association of Pediatrics.
The AAP disregarded decades of educational psychology and claimed, “Babies and young children study faces, so you may worry that having masked caregivers would harm children’s language development. There are no studies to support this concern. Young children will use other clues like gestures and tone of voice.”

The so-called “experts” said that wearing masks all day would not affect the development of young children, which was obviously utter nonsense.
“It’s no surprise that children are behind,” The Post added. “The pandemic upended everyday life and left millions learning from home for months or more. The results released Monday reveal the depth of those setbacks and the size of the challenge schools face as they help students catch up.”
“Many parents may not understand just how far behind their children are academically,” the report continued. “A spring survey by the national nonprofit Learning Heroes found the majority of parents believed their children were performing at or above their grade level in math and reading.”
Parents were lied to, and now their children are suffering the consequences.
The leaders of the COVID regime must be held accountable for the damage they’ve inflicted.
A journalism legend claims he lost his credentials with one whiny complaint about Donald Trump
Self-proclaimed “journalists” literally have the power to shape history.
Now a journalism legend who once took down a U.S. President claims he lost his credentials.
And you’ll be flabbergasted with his whiny complaint about Donald Trump.
When 79-year-old Bob Woodward was a young journalist just getting his start, he launched his career at The Washington Post.
Back in 1972, Woodward managed to score an inside source from the FBI – which he dubbed “Deep Throat” – willing to divulge the details of the Watergate scandal.
When that source, Mark Felt, finally passed away in 2008, Woodward talked to NPR about some of his source’s motives for coming forward.
“I think also part of it was the lawbreaking,” Woodward said. “Probably the most important thing that Mark Felt told me was simply that Watergate was not isolated — that it was a part of a series of secret activities to spy on Democrats, sabotage their campaigns. And also that was a mindset, which was the Nixon mindset of ‘We are above the law; we are not accountable to anyone.’ And I think Felt was willing to guide us.”
Woodward and his writing partner, Carl Bernstein, pursued every bit of information so doggedly that former President Richard Nixon ended up resigning.
That result cemented Woodward as a journalism legend, known for ferreting out scandal and holding politicians accountable.
But over the past few years, it’s become abundantly obvious his approach is purely partisan.
When Hillary Clinton used her own email server as Secretary of State, hacked then-candidate Donald Trump’s servers, and created the Russiagate hoax, she got a pass.
When poll workers were caught on video shuffling mysterious boxes and luggage into ballot counting areas in 2020, they also got a pass.
After passing up on those two gems, you’d think Hunter Biden’s sketchy deals with communists — all who happen to have ties with China’s spy agency — worth about $31 million, would prove irresistible.
Instead, Woodward is tying himself in knots over his inability to make Donald Trump look bad enough.
Now, Woodward is claiming he got “entangled in the disorder of Trump’s Presidency.”
He’s releasing part of the audio and transcripts from his 20 interviews with the former President, complaining that the former President is so mean he can’t adequately express it on paper.
“I was struck by how Trump pounded in my ears in a way the printed page cannot capture,” Woodward wrote, noting that this was the first time he has personally released “the raw interviews or full transcripts” in his career,” Mediaite reported. “He believed that ‘these interviews offer an unvarnished portrait of Trump’ that people needed to see (and hear) because he realized “Trump is an unparalleled danger.”
Dangerous how, you may ask – well, Woodward doesn’t have anything substantive to offer other than being insulted by the truth Trump wasn’t afraid to lob his way.
“You’re probably going to screw me. Because, you know, that’s the way it goes,” Trump told Woodward. “Look, [George W.] Bush sat with you for hours and you screwed him. But the difference was, I ain’t no Bush.”
The problem for leftists, like Bob Woodward, is that they can’t dig up anything truly awful on Trump compared to the ugly side shows they’re trying to shut down on Democrats’ side of the fence.

Joe Biden turned red with rage after this Democrat operative made a stunning admission about the Midterms
Democrats are bracing for impact in the upcoming Midterms.
Their closing pitch to voters is not resonating.
And Joe Biden turned red with rage after this Democrat operative made a stunning admission about the Midterms.
Democrats have determined that their path to victory is to call half the country “Republican extremists,” censor dissenting opinions, and preach “woke” politics.
But long-time Democrat operative James Carville believes that his Party is flirting with disaster.
“I’ll make this prediction right now,” former Democrat National Committee chairman Howard Dean said. “We’ll pick up two to three in the Senate and pick up the House. We will pick up seats in the House and not lose them.”
Carville did not entirely share Dean’s optimism.
“I agree with you if we execute an obvious strategy that is right in front of us,” Carville said. “But if we keep this kind of NPR foundation strategy of identity Left politics, we’re going to lose. If we pick up the banner and say, they have a plan, and this is their plan.”
“You didn’t believe them when they told you they would overturn Roe,” he continued. “Guess what? They did. You better believe them when they tell you they want to get rid of Social Security and Medicare because they do. And I will agree with the Governor if these Democrats have the discipline and the common sense to drive these issues home.”
“How do you define the NPR politics?” MSNBC’s Ari Melber asked.
“I defined it in the spring of 2021 when I wrote a piece in The Wall Street Journal saying the Democrats need to own the crime issue, or the crime issue will own you,” Carville explained. “Well, people said, well, you can’t do that because there will be a big backlash. Okay, you didn’t own it, and guess what? It’s a big problem for Democrats. I’m telling the same elite coastal people forget everything.”
“We are going to advertise and push the fact that they want to throw people off Medicare and Social Security, and they want to shut the government down to do it,” he continued. “That’s how you win. We should have grabbed the crime issue back in the spring of 2021, but we got to listen to these foundation NPR types, which is always a disaster.”
Of course, the Democrat talking point that Republicans are going to cut or eliminate any part of the social safety net, whether it’s Social Security, Medicare, or anything else, has been completely debunked.
Even left-wing “fact checkers,” like those at The Washington Post, have admitted that it’s a total lie.
Regardless, it’s clear that James Carville hasn’t gotten the memo that the Democrat Party is now the party of the exact left-wing identity politics he claims to oppose.
Working class voters are trending toward the Republican Party because Democrats are embracing more insane ideas that do not help the average American.
