Media fail: So, Ann Romney never said ‘you people’ after all

As Twitchy reported earlier today, liberals had their knickers in a twist after the lapdog media blew up a story that Ann Romney had used the phrase “you people” when dismissing the fuss over her husband’s tax returns.

Right on cue, lefties lined up to lay into the Romneys:

Oh, puh-leeeeeeeeze. Thanks for playing.

As it turns out, the Left was foaming at the mouth over a big, fat nothingburger; it seems Mrs. Romney didn’t use “you people” at all.

The media ran with a false narrative? Let us show you our shocked face:

ABC walked back its earlier claim that Ann Romney had uttered the “you” in question:

You People? – What Did Ann Romney Say About Mitt’s Taxes on GMA? – There’s a Debate Online.

Was it – “And we’ve given all people need to know and understand about our financial situation and about how — you know, how we live our life.”

Or was it – “And we’ve given all you people need to know and understand about our financial situation and about how — you know, how we live our life.”

Our ruling after reviewing the original audio is that she did not include the “you.”

Some liberals accused both the Huffington Post and MSNBC of altering Romney’s quote to protect her.

Conservatives, fed up with the growing list of lapdog media bungles, fought back against the asinine #youpeople meme.

As is the case with so many instances of liberal gun-jumpage, waiting for an apology will be an exercise in futility.
