The media keeps rediscovering new standards for burden or proof.
It’s up to Brett Kavanaugh to prove that he didn’t rape whatever Dem activist came forward, at any possible time and place. Also it’s up to the Saudis to prove that they didn’t kill the Washington Post’s pet Muslim Brotherhood propagandist.
The Washington Post’s editorial page editor said Sunday that the “burden of proof is on Saudi Arabia” to prove what happened to Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, who was last seen nearly two weeks ago entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.
“What we know for a fact is that he entered the Saudi consulate twelve days ago and he hasn’t come out. So all this talk about, ‘Oh, let’s have investigations and let’s wait for the facts to come out’ — no,” Fred Hiatt said on CNN’s “Reliable Sources.“
“The burden of proof is on Saudi Arabia, or should be, and that’s what President Trump should be saying. Jamal entered that consulate, he didn’t come out. Where is he?” Hiatt added.
The official media narrative is Made in Turkey. An Islamic terror state that locks up reporters for laughs and tortures political prisoners.
The Washington Post would like us to accept Turkey’s claims about Khashoggi as fact. And that puts Turkey (and Qatar) in charge of our foreign policy. Can we investigate collusion between the media, Turkey and Qatar?
