In an effort to “fact-check” President Donald J. Trump’s State of the Union address, the Jeff Bezos-owned Washington Post dangerously entered the territory of rape apology just days after the public learned that it buried a report of sexual assault on Democratic Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of Virginia.
“Fact check: Trump says ‘1 in 3 women is sexually assaulted on the long journey north.’ But there’s less to that number than meets the eye,” the far-left propaganda outlet said on Twitter.
If the Tweet wasn’t bad enough, the article was an all-out abomination.
“The White House attributes the 1-in-3 estimate to a 2017 report by Doctors Without Borders. But there’s less to that number than meets the eye,” the report said. “Trump states as a fact that 1 out of 3 women traveling through Mexico is sexually assaulted. But the report did not conduct a random-sample survey that could be applied to all migrant women. Instead, the group interviewed nearly 500 people whom its doctors treated, of which 12 percent were women. So the statistic is derived from the experiences of 56 women and cannot necessarily be considered representative of all migrant women.”
It gets worse.
“In the interviews, 31.4 percent of women said they were ‘sexually abused’ on the journey, not ‘sexually assaulted’ as Trump says. Considering only rape and other forms of direct sexual violence, 10.7 percent of the women who were interviewed said they were affected during their journey,” the report said.
So, in the eyes of the staff at Washington Post, there is a moral distinction between sexual abuse and rape. The paper made no effort, by the way, to note that sexual abuse or sexual assault are both bad, and that just one instance of this behavior is too many.
There is evidence that women’s bodies are used as part of the payment for being illegally smuggled across the southern border. Border Patrol agents often report that young girls caught crossing the border illegally are carrying birth control with them. Washington Post sought to downplay that fact because it hurts the Democrats’ open-borders agenda.
All of this comes days after learning that WaPo spiked a story on sexual assault allegations against Fairfax, claiming that the allegations were “uncorroborated.”
That distinction did not matter to the paper when Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was accused of sexual misconduct by a woman who could not remember the date, time, or place in which the alleged misconduct occurred. They ran with the Kavanaugh story anyway.
It’s almost as though Washington Post has a political agenda, and that its standard regarding the treatment of women changes in order to hold water for the Democratic Party.

President Trump Takes Down Chinese State Media Reporter: “Who Do You Work For, China?”
The reporter works for a company all-but controlled by the Chinese government.
President Donald Trump correctly questioned if a reporter promoting the supposed efforts of Chinese companies to provide needed coronavirus supplies was working for a Chinese-government controlled media company at Monday’s press conference.
Youyou Wang asked a question that was phrased as more of a statement, describing the humanitarian efforts of Chinese companies Huawei and Alibaba as a potential motive for the United States to rescind trade restrictions on China in the wake of the epidemic.

“Who are you working for, China? Do you work for China, or do you work for a newspaper? Who are you with?”
Youyou Wang stated that she works for a privately owned media company, but scrutiny of Hong Kong Phoenix TV reveals that it’s closely linked to the Chinese government. According to The National Pulse’s Raheem Kassam, 37.1% of the company’s parent, Phoenix Satellite Holdings, is owned by a former Colonel for China’s state propaganda TV channel. Another 20% of the company is owned by Extra Step Investments Limited, which is a subsidiary of a Chinese government-owned company called China Mobile.

Mainstream media operatives immediately pivoted to paint Trump’s wholly reasonable inquiry to the nature of Wang’s media company as somehow prejudiced, claiming that it was inappropriate that Trump question the motives of someone who was trying to defend China’s major corporations and government in the midst of the pandemic.
His suspicions appear to have been validated, considering no more than 65% of the company is owned by individuals and entities with demonstrable connections to the Chinese government. Many of China’s nominally ‘private’ companies are essentially owned by the nation’s authoritarian government and work tirelessly to advance its interests.
