Washington Post Falls For Left-Wing Fraud, Embarrasses Itself | Power Line: "These facts caused a considerable amount of hilarity at IFG’s expense last October, and the Post reporters could have found out that the IFG report was a joke in about five minutes if they knew how to use Google. But maybe they don’t; or maybe they were too blinded by ideology to bother with the facts. Notwithstanding that they knew they were dealing with a disreputable source:
The material about Koch and its oil sands leases has been provided to The Post by Victor Menotti, who was arrested during the anti-WTO demonstrations in Seattle back in November 1999.
That’s obviously a source that you don’t need to check!
Why would the Washington Post embarrass itself by republishing a thoroughly discredited attempt to link the Koch brothers to the Keystone Pipeline? Because that is a Democratic Party talking point, and the Post is a Democratic Party newspaper. But the truth is a little worse than that."
