Hillary's Laughing Defense of Child Rapist: Not a Front-Page WashPost

June 17th, 2014 9:01 AM
The same Washington Post that suggested it was dramatic front-page news in 2012 that Mitt Romney cut another student’s hair in high school in 1965 didn’t find front-page news in Hillary Clinton laughing about defending a child rapist in the 1970s.

WashPost Repeats: 'None of the So-Called Current Scandals' Compare to

May 15th, 2014 10:23 AM
Even forty years later, The Washington Post loves the opportunity to burnish its own Watergate legend. That scandal is somehow the Uber-Scandal of All Time And Space.
