As Twitchy reported, Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler did a hit piece on Sen. Tim Scott, suggesting his claim that his family went from “cotton to Congress in one lifetime” wasn’t exactly true. See, Scott’s grandfather left school at age 11 to pick cotton, but it was for a family farm, so his story overlooks the Scott family’s privilege of being land-owners.

The piece was so blatantly a hit job that even Jonah Goldberg managed to muster up, well, this:

No, there was no rating, and if he had to do it all over again, of course he would have. He promoted the hell out of the piece on Twitter.

Why publish this?
