Buzzfeed’s Andrew Kaczynski denies committing sin of omission, gets caught red-handed

As Twitchy reported, Buzzfeed’s Andrew Kaczynski not-so-subtly used Bob Beckel’s cretinous date rape comments to smear Fox News and conservatives. Called out on his slimy shenanigans, Kaczynski responded like so:

Which, of course, makes it totally OK to omit the fact that Beckel is a liberal Democrat. Except, according to Kaczynski, that omission was never made:

Literally!!11! Or is it? See, here’s what Kaczynski’s post originally looked like:

Buzzfeed Beckel story — original

And here’s how it appears now:

Buzzfeed Beckel post — changed

Notice a little something extra in the subheadline? We do. What a difference a word makes, huh?

Once upon a time, Kaczynski understood that it’s good journalistic practice to note that a headline (or subheadline, as it were) has been changed after initial publication:

Buzzfeed headline updated

Evidently, that time has passed. Now, he’s reduced to futilely clawing his way out of an ever-embiggening hole of his own creation.

Keep digging, Andrew.

Update:

Kaczynski now acknowledges that the “liberal” was added later. He claims he added it “literally seconds” after the post was published, before he tweeted out the link:

The thing is, we reached the post via this tweet:

We grabbed that screenshot after clicking on the link that he tweeted. Kaczynski’s story doesn’t pass the smell test. Naturally, he’s digging that hole of his even deeper — by blaming Twitchy for his problems.

We’re OK with that. Forward, the Twitchy Brigade!
