We’ve already rolled our eyes at “Chappaquiddick” spin shared by the likes of NBC News (on two occasions) and the New York Times. Next up, the Washington Post presented this spin:

As far as Ted goes, is this really a “curse”?

Also, Ted didn’t go to jail, and his post-Chappaquiddick life was followed by a several decade career in the Senate for the wealthy Kennedy. So basically it depends on what your definition of a “curse” is.

The media spin machine has sure been working overtime since “Chappaquiddick” came out.
