Democracy dies in darkness? The media dies in a mess of partisan lies and a blatant coup attempt.
Does anyone outside the left believe that the media function as anything except a partisan hit squad? If there are still any doubts, here's the Washington Post's political hit girl participating in a secretive Soros event.
Washington Post reporter Janell Ross gave a presentation at a secretive California gathering where Democratic politicians, liberal activists, and their biggest donors plotted the future of the progressive movement without notifying her superiors that she would be attending, according to a Post spokesman.
That would be the Democracy Alliance. That's George Soros' little SPECTRE boardroom where anyone can buy a big chunk of the Dems for a modest six figures. It's about as partisan as anything gets.
The Washington Post claims it didn't know anything. Also she was just there promoting a book.
The Washington Post said it was unaware Ross was at the Democracy Alliance conference until the Washington Free Beacon asked whether she had permission to be there.
"We’ve only now learned about her participation in this event," said a spokesperson.
The spokesperson added that Ross has been "reminded" that the paper "discourages" involvement in events that may be "perceived as partisan."
"The Washington Post policy discourages participation in any activity that could be perceived as partisan," the spokesperson said. "She has been reminded of that."
Ross appears to have explained that she was there to discuss a book she is working on independently from the Washington Post.
"Our understanding is that she was there solely to discuss the subject of a book she is writing independently on economic inequality," the spokesman said.
The book doesn't actually exist yet, but it's a perfectly valid excuse. WaPo hat off. Independent leftist author hat on. And where better to discuss economic inequality than at a political power play by a left-wing billionaire? A less trusting fellow might think that the Washington Post (the official paper of the bureaucratic #resistance in the Imperial City) and Soros are on the same team.
