I really hate being lied to. I also hate it when a source that should be reliable lies to me in order to convince me to take a stand on an issue. Unfortunately that has become a way of life for some of the mainstream media. The latest example illustrates that there might be some panic associated with having an attorney general who believes in the rule of law involved in the Epstein case.
The Gateway Pundit reported today:
The Fake News Liberal Media claimed that AG Bill Barr’s father worked with Jeffrey Epstein as a school teacher and therefore AG Barr should recuse himself from the Epstein case. Of course, it’s just another liberal lie.
The article then goes on to report the actual facts:
The fake news New York Times reported in February 1974 that Bill Barr’s father had resigned from the elite school
…The far left Daily Beast reported that Epstein did work at the school but he didn’t work there until after the summer of 1974 –
AG Bill Barr’s father couldn’t have worked with Epstein at Dalton School because he wasn’t even there when Epstein worked there. He resigned months earlier.
So I guess there is no reason for Attorney General Barr to recuse himself. But how many people are mistakenly going to believe what they heard on the news? This sort of reporting is a threat to our republic–misinformed voters can be manipulated to vote any way a dishonest media wants them to vote.
