WaPo Jumps the Shark In Fear of the Inspector General Report

The Washington Post is already in fear of the Inspector General report before it comes out. You could say that they are trying to make some preemptive strikes on the report in order to protect the alt-left and Democrat narrative.

The mainstream media will be spinning the story all day long and here is what you should watch for.

The article doesn’t deny Israel is a disaster, (“Israel really does seem to deserve some blame, and really has displayed ineptitude and arrogance in public”) it just refocuses on those darn Republicans who were seizing on the fact that the Sheriff sounds like an idiot. How dare they!

Friday the Washington Post set a new milestone in the “Republicans seize” genre: A “Republicans about to seize” story about an IG report that hasn’t even been published….
