Washington Post reporter Janelle Ross sat on a panel at a secret gathering of Democrats where she offered strategic advice, according to a report by the Washington Free Beacon. Left-wing billionaire George Soros was also in attendance.
Ross presents herself and is presented by the Post as an objective journalist. She primarily covers politics and race, and much of her focus is on the Trump administration. Nevertheless, Ross’s Twitter feed is that of a left-wing activist, and back in 2015, with no evidence, Ross smeared then-presidential candidate Jeb Bush in such a sleazy way, even MSNBC felt the need to push back.
According to the Beacon, the Washington Post journalist “gave a presentation at a secretive California gathering where Democratic politicians, liberal activists, and their biggest donors plotted the future of the progressive movement[.]”
The Post claims to have known nothing about their reporter’s attendance, and told the Beacon that Ross has been “reminded” about the Post’s policy when it comes to attending events that “could be perceived as partisan.”
One wonders if the Post reminded Ross that “democracy dies in [the] darkness” of secret gatherings where “journalists” secretly attend to secretly strategize about secret stuff.
The secret gathering was organized by the Democracy Alliance, and Ross’s panel reportedly dealt directly with Democrats responding to their 2016 loss.
According to documents obtained by the Beacon, the panel discussion addressed “What do progressives stand for? How do we grapple with the tough issues? What story are we trying to tell and how does it play out in communities across the country? How do we translate what the polls and research tell us into the compelling narratives that will build the public will to reorient our economy and combat inequality?”
The Beacon discovered that Ross’s panel “was sandwiched by a talk with liberal billionaire George Soros and a message by Democratic senator Amy Klobuchar (Minn.) on Russian interference in the 2016 election[.]”
This is yet another black eye for the left-wing Washington Post, a media outlet currently under fire over its shoddy reporting of the Roy Moore scandal and countless journalistic flubs in its partisan zeal to destroy President Trump.
Outside of the elite enclaves of Manhattan and DC, and second only to CNN, the Washington Post has become a national laughingstock; a news outlet widely seen as a partisan fake news factory that cannot and should not be believed.
