Cry Me a River: Justin Fairfax Says WaPo Story is a ‘Smear’

This story is in no way meant to be construed as a defense of Jeff Bezos’ blog.

After threatening to sue Big League Politics in a desperate 3 a.m. denial of sexual assault allegations, the Democratic Lieutenant Governor of Virginia claimed that he was smeared by The Washington Post, and threatened legal action against them, too.

Justin Fairfax says the allegations levied against him by Stanford professor Vanessa Tyson are false, and responded to a Washington Post report, in which Jeff Bezos’ blog claimed that it, too, had heard of such allegations, by threatening to take the publication to court. The paper contradicted some of the facts in Fairfax’s original denial of the allegations, so he threatened legal action.

He said:

The Washington Post, acknowledging that it had no corroboration, just smeared an elected official. We reiterate that this allegation is false. At no time has the lieutenant governor assaulted anyone at any time or at any place.

This type of smear is what we meant when we said that politics and the coverage of it needs to rise to a higher level that befits our country and the 400-year history of our Commonwealth. This is what we meant when we said that people who continue to spread these false allegations will be sued.

We ask further: What other major elected official in the Commonwealth of Virginia would be smeared with sexual allegations that were presented without corroboration?

Nobody should be unfairly smeared.

But here’s the thing: The Washington Post traffics in uncorroborated reports of sexual misconduct regularly. It’s one of their tactics for making sure democracy doesn’t die in darkness. For proof, see Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. For further proof, see former U.S. Senate Candidate Judge Roy Moore.

By the way, let’s not forget that the paper failed to report these allegations in the first place, despite the fact that they are at least as detailed, if not more detailed, than those of the Kavanaugh and Moore cases. Big League Politics had to report the allegations first, thursting them into broad daylight (where democracy lives).

Fairfax wants sympathy? He feels as though he’s been unfairly smeared by the news media? Welcome to the life of every Republican, ever! Unless Washington Post is planning to re-work its editorial standards and publicly retract every story it wrote about Kavanaugh, Fairfax has no room to gripe.

And what about the ordinary American conservatives? You know, the ones who just wanted to be left alone, but instead were slandered for decades as backwards, racist, homophobic, Islamaphobic, xenophobic, sexist, misogynistic, and hateful by the likes of WaPo and the rest of the mainstream press?

It’s going to take more than one report about allegations of sexual assault – allegations that Fairfax himself confirmed existed – for this reporter to lose a wink of sleep over it.

The political left made these rules. Now they have to abide by them. Cry me a river.

Presidential Debate Commission Considers Major Rule Changes, Which May Include Muting Trump’s Microphone

They are desperate to protect Joe Biden.

Published

on

President Donald Trump smacked down former vice president Joe Biden so brutally in last night’s presidential debate that the commission is considering changing the rules to give Biden a leg up in future debates.

The Commission on Presidential Debates made the announcement on Wednesday that they are going to be changing the rules of the game to hurt President Trump, which may even include the ability to mute Trump’s microphone.

They issued a statement saying that the debate “made clear that additional structure should be added to the format of the remaining debates to ensure a more orderly discussion of the issues.”

President Trump, who was frequently double-teamed by Biden and biased globalist moderator Chris Wallace, was forced to fight two men during the debate, but this wasn’t enough to give Biden the advantage. This is why they are considering changing the rules in the middle of the game.

Of course, the Commission on Presidential Debates praised Wallace for attacking Trump and propping up Biden throughout the debate.

“The CPD will be carefully considering the changes that it will adopt and will announce those measures shortly,” the organization said. “The Commission is grateful to Chris Wallace for the professionalism and skill he brought to last night’s debate and intends to ensure that additional tools to maintain order are in place for the remaining debates.”

They have assured CBS News that “we are going to be making changes” before the next debate. This is clearly designed to hurt Trump and bias the proceedings even further against the president.

Tim Murtaugh, communications director for the Trump campaign, is calling out the commission for their partisan and reprehensible behavior.

“They’re only doing this because their guy got pummeled last night,” he said in a statement. “President Trump was the dominant force and now Joe Biden is trying to work the refs. They shouldn’t be moving the goalposts and changing the rules in the middle of the game.”

Kate Bedingfield, deputy campaign manager for Biden’s campaign, is counting on the rules being changed to help Biden.

“He’ll be focused on answering questions from the voters there, under whatever set of rules the Commission develops to try to contain Donald Trump’s behavior,” Bedingfield said in a statement. “The president will have to choose between responding to voters about questions for which he has offered no answers in this campaign — or repeating last night’s unhinged meltdown.”

Big League Politics reported on how Wallace constantly interrupted President Trump and served as a surrogate for Biden while he was supposed to be the non-biased moderator:

The Donald Trump campaign has indicated that ‘neutral’ moderator Chris Wallace interrupted President Trump a whopping 76 times during Tuesday’s debate. Wallace, who is known for harboring liberal sympathies, was widely criticized by conservatives for his partiality in moderating the contest…

It appears that Biden actually spent more time talking during the debate than Trump did, despite Wallace consistently maintaining that Trump was breaking the rules.

Wallace continually invoked the rules that allot two minutes for each answer to each candidate, but declined to interrupt Biden when he violated them. He flouted neutrality most during the ‘open discussion’ segments, waiting for a moment when Biden appeared flustered or challenged by the President to change the subject.

Wallace conveniently changed the subject when Trump pressed Biden to identify any law enforcement union that endorsed him…

Wallace also provided the same convenient handicap when Biden described the terrorist group ANTIFA as an ‘idea.’…

Biden assailed Trump with a hail of personally charged insults, calling him a ‘clown,’ a ‘racist,’ a ‘fool,’ and a ‘puppy.’ Wallace did not object to any of the character attacks utilized by Biden…

At this point, if Biden refuses to a contest with a moderator unaffiliated with a mainstream corporate media outlet, just do the debates without a moderator. Have the two candidates speak in an open-ended fashion without the use of a convenient handicap to cut off any content that might prove harmful to the Democrat’s electoral prospects.

The electoral integrity for November’s vote is already severely jeopardized. President Trump might want to consider suspending the elections in order to protect the Republic from the anti-democratic coup that is in progress.
