Mainstream media outlets like the Washington Post will do anything they can to protect Democrats. They will slant the news left, mitigate damage when they can, and highlight foibles of the Democrats’ adversaries. Sometimes, the truth is just too hard to overlook.
Such is the case with Beto O’Rouke, the Democratic candidate trying to unseat Senator Ted Cruz in Texas.
Beto O’Rourke gets four ‘Pinocchios’ for saying he didn’t try to leave the scene of his drunk-driving accident
A separate document, the incident and crime report, said O’Rourke “attempted to leave the accident but was stopped by the reporter.” The witness, who was not identified, twice told police that O’Rourke tried to flee the scene.
The fact-checker decided for those reasons that O’Rourke was not telling the truth.
“O’Rourke was so drunk that he could barely get out of the car without falling, so perhaps he would not have gotten far – or he was simply confused. Perhaps in his memory, O’Rourke believes he did not try to leave. But, given his BAC level at the time of the accident, O’Rourke’s memory 20 years after the fact is not nearly as credible as the police reports written just hours after the accident,” the fact-checker said.
I’m confident Texans will make the right decision on this one. Even without the DUI and subsequent lie about it, O’Rourke represents a charismatic but politically askew individual who is not indicative of the things Texas or America need.
Part of the leftist delusion prevents many of them from accepting truth or responsibility for their actions. O’Rourke is no different. Even WaPo couldn’t cover up this 4-Pinocchio whopper.
