Post Smears 'Civil War' on Gun March, Touts 'Hope' in Feminist Fury
January 19th, 2020 12:26 PM
One of the most dramatic contrasts in media bias is shown in coverage of protests. The Washington Post published a gushy article on the "Women's March" in D.C., but on the front page, the Post smeared the coming gun-rights protest in Richmond as an occasion to "fan the flames of a civil war."
Press Mostly Ignores Story of 19 Dead Registered to Vote in Virginia
October 2nd, 2016 6:02 PM
The left continues to insist that voter fraud is a myth, specifically that "voter fraud is very rare, voter impersonation is nearly non-existent," and that "most allegations of fraud turn out to be baseless."
Part of the support system for that insistence comes from the press, where reports of election fraud routinely get ignored or downplayed.

Rick Santorum, a former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania who is known for his conservative stance on several social issues, became a target in a glossy, full-color publication produced by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria under the heading: “In the Words of the Enemy.”

WashPost Dismisses Teen-Tapping Legislator as a 'Fleeting Sideshow'
December 23rd, 2014 8:01 PM
The affair of Virginia State Delegate Joseph Morrissey – the 57-year-old legislator bedding a 17-year-old legal aide – was a juicy story the late Ben Bradlee might have adored. But the Post didn’t put a news story on the front page of the Metro section until last Friday, December 19, five days after they buried it on C-7.
The story underlined why the Democrat-backers at the…
WashPost Promises to Help Tear Down Former GOP Governor of Virginia
July 30th, 2014 9:22 AM
The Washington Post has deeply and lovingly covered the corruption scandal around former Virginia Gov. Robert McDonnell, and couldn’t contain its excitement over the trial. In Sunday’s newspaper and in Tuesday’s Post Express tabloid, they highlighted this preview in headlines: “It’s Going To Be Ugly.” They couldn't wait for the ugliness.
WashPost's Vozzella: McAullife Seeks to 'Free' Va. Abortion Clinics of
May 13th, 2014 1:15 PM
To the Washington Post's Laura Vozzella, NARAL Pro-Choice America-endorsed liberal Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe is a politician making good on a promise to "free Virginia's abortion clinics from strict hospital-style building codes," set to take effect this June. It's a move which heartens the abortion industry fearful that regulations authorized by a bipartisan vote in…
WashPost Downplays Virginia Gov. McAuliffe Returning to Sleazy Clinton
March 19th, 2014 8:04 AM
Virginia’s new governor, Terry McAuliffe, is returning to form, hosting special fundraising coffees with major donors and policy “experts.” This may be just like the way McAuliffe held White House coffees and sold overnight Lincoln Bedroom stays to donors for Bill Clinton, but it’s a bit troublesome for The Washington Post, which quickly cancelled its own cozy idea of…

March 7th, 2014 12:45 PM
To its credit, the Washington Post this morning is reporting an intramural spat roiling inside the Democratic Party in the Old Dominion. Turns out gay rights groups are livid that Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D-Va.) has nominated Richmond Mayor Dwight Jones to chair the state's Democratic Party. Jones, who happens to be African-American and is a Baptist pastor, "has not endorsed same-sex…
Virginia's New Dem Atty. General Does 180 on Same-sex Marriage; WashPo
January 23rd, 2014 4:50 PM
Democrat Mark Herring pulled out a squeaker of a win last fall, narrowly besting Republican Mark Obenshain to become Virginia's attorney general. In October, the Washington Post endorsed Herring, then a state senator, insisting that Herring "would hew to the former Virginia tradition of offering restrained and responsible advice" to the governor and state agencies and by refusing…
WashPost Spins McAuliffe's Habit of Stretching Truth As Old-Fashioned
October 11th, 2013 12:35 PM
We've seen it with how the liberal media treats Joe Biden. The vice president's gaffes and erroneous statements are legendary, yet the press give ol' Uncle Joe gauzy treatment, celebrating rather than mocking him for his foibles and admiring his penchant for "retail politics." It's arguable that the Washington Post's Laura Vozzella did much the same for the…
Va. Dems Pressured Tech Group to Reverse Cuccinelli Endorsement; WashP
September 16th, 2013 4:55 PM
"The pressure" over the weekend from Virginia Democrats for a northern Virginia business group to reverse its gubernatorial endorsement decision and back Terry McAuliffe was "hot and heavy," in the words of Dendy Young, whose political action committee TechPAC -- the political arm of the Northern Virginia Technology Council -- voted by secret ballot on Thursday to endorse…
WashPost Whacks 'Fiery' Black GOP Candidate On Page One With Yoga-and
September 4th, 2013 8:45 AM
The Washington Post put conservative black minister E.W. Jackson on its front page again Wednesday, replaying its favorite “nutty” remarks. Reporter Laura Vozzella began: “Virginia Republicans have been keeping their distance from E.W. Jackson ever since the fiery minister, who has compared Planned Parenthood to the Klan and linked yoga to Satan, won the GOP nomination for…
Washington Free Beacon Scoop Spurs WashPost Double Standard on Slavery
March 22nd, 2013 8:34 AM
On Thursday, The Washington Post's Metro section put the Democrats' choice of “news” on the front page. “Democrats keep focus on abortion in Va. Race.” Post reporter Laura Vozzella relayed their outrage that GOP gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli was caught by a Democrat tracker describing abortion as a moral evil like slavery, as did one of his big financial…
WashPost's Vozzella: 'Conciliatory' Bolling No Match for Tea Party-bac
November 30th, 2012 3:32 PM
As I argued yesterday, the Washington Post is already at work with its spin operation to tar Virginia Republican gubernatorial contender Ken Cuccinelli as a right-wing radical in advance of the 2013 race. The spin operation continued apace, today on the front page of the paper's Metro section, where Richmond correspondent Laura Vozzella described for readers how Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling…
