Friday, Breitbart News reported that Politico has thus far published only three stories on Texas gubernatorial candidate and Democrat rising star Wendy Davis being caught fabricating her life story as a single teenage mother who put herself through school. The fact that Politico has shown almost no interest in the Davis scandal did not stop the left-wing outlet from running a lead piece Saturday that declares Davis “The Most Judged Woman In America.”
Judged where, exactly? Certainly not on the pages of Politico or the mainstream news media.
Moreover, the piece is written by Liza Mundy, who identifies herself as the program director at the New America Foundation. What Politico does not disclose, though, is that the New America Foundation is a left-wing organization — left-wing enough to attract the son of George Soros to its board. Politico is obsessed with every move anyone with the last name Koch makes, but not so much when it comes to a Soros-affiliated writer at their own site.
Let’s give credit to Politico, though. Propaganda-wise it is a master-stoke for the left-wing outlet to almost completely ignore the Davis scandal and then lead with an article that paints her as a martyr to something that never happened.
As always, it is important to remember that although it is a left-wing outlet, Politico disguises itself as objective. But objective outlets do not devote 50-plus stories to a stupid comment and 3 to someone fabricating for a year the narrative that helped make them a star.
