Jennnifer Rubin continues to fine tune her ability to intentionally deceive the reader.
Today she states that "In a blockbuster report, John Solomon, the former Associated Press and Post reporter, has ferreted out the" supposed truth about Benghazi.
Note that she credits Solomon for having worked at the A.P. and at the Washington Post. She neglects to mention that he more recently was at the Washington Times. (May the Rev Moon rest in peace.) In fact, acccording to a newspaper that Ms Rubin does find worth mentioning, (the WaPo) Solomon was back at the Washington Times as recently as June 6. How odd that she did not mention this?
Back in August of 2012,Solomon was characterized in the Columbia Journalism Review thusly:
"Then again, Solomon has a history of bending the truth to his storyline. As a reporter for the AP and The Washington Post, he dug up his share of genuine dirt, but he also was notorious for massaging facts to conjure phantom scandals
Similarly, reporters who worked under Solomon as an editor—seven of whom were interviewed for this article—say he often pressured them to mold the truth to his vision of the story. “He had this sort of thesis or idea of what the story was,” says one Center staff member. “Facts be damned.”"
Looks like both Rubin and Solomon could have a bright future at Fox.
It's hard to imagine a more apt description of Bengazi than calling it a "phantom scandal."
