MORE ON MCCLATCHY’S GRIEVOUS ERROR: Don’t leave it to Cleaver, part 16. “We believe that the congressmen’s story was a fabrication intended to defame the Tea Party movement and distract attention from the resistance to Obamacare. Not a single video corroborates it. No independent witness has stepped forward to vouch for it. Given the involvement of Rep. Clyburn in promoting the story, the fabrication extends to the Democratic congressional leadership. It is a scandal that warrants the attention of the mainstream media. In recent installments of this series, we have posted correspondence — both our own and that of our readers — with McClatchy News investigative editor James Asher. (All previous installments can be accessed here.) Readers have continued to forward their correspondence with Asher to us. This correspondence powerfully points out the deficiencies of the messages we have posted from Asher. But it is evident that Asher has no interest in examining the merits of the story.”
