WASHINGTON TIMES: LEWIS, CARSON N WORD INCIDENT NEVER HAPPENED. I reluctantly bring this up because the idea is so stupid it’s not worth recognition. Tongue biting has never been my strength so what the hell: In an editorial, here the remaining clowns who survived the last round of layoffs at The Washington Times write:
“… visibly delighted Rep. Andre Carson, Indiana Democrat, told reporters that anti-health-bill demonstrators had slung racial epithets at members of the Congressional Black Caucus. A Washington Times reporter witnessed other members of the press establishment scurrying back to the press gallery to go live with the charges without bothering to verify them. The story has yet to be substantiated.”
Hear that everyone? It never happened. Now we require video evidence and audio to prove everything. We don’t have video of Jesus on the cross or the signing of the Constitution but, still: We believe? I can’t wait to encounter the Washington Times “reporter” who described Andre Carson — who never talks with reporters — as “gleeful.” See, I was there. I listened and spoke to Carson directly myself so I know what the truth is. Funny thing, Carson had only 4 or 5 reporters around him, two of whom never reported anything on the matter. Later, Rep. John Lewis had to be sought out by four reporters (Bill Douglas of McClatchy, Ted Barrett of CNN and Chad Pergram of Fox and myself) who knew something had happened. Lewis did not seek us out we sought him out.
And surely you appreciate the phrase: “Anti-health-bill demonstrators.”
That would be “tea bag demonstrators” to everyone else.
