While campaigning in California yesterday, GOP gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder had an egg thrown at him by a white woman wearing a gorilla mask:

Keeping in mind that the media have been largely ignoring the story (or at least failing to take the angle they definitely would if the person who had an egg thrown at them by a white person in a gorilla mask), this is the Washington Post’s latest Elder-related fact-check:

There’s a fact-check elephant in the room that’s clearly being ignored.
Washington Post is finally reporting on Larry Eld.. oh wait. https://t.co/JMYa8ycRYp

That isn’t really the fact-check that people want to see.
ICYMI —> Larry Elder was attacked by a white woman, wearing a gorilla mask, throwing eggs at his head. Washington Post has not mentioned it once. https://t.co/TTdJ1ipi9C

And an accompanying fact-check on allegations that the mainstream media are largely ignoring the story.
Is this uh… is this the only story available about Elder?

Glenn spools up the fact checker quite selectivity. Interesting.

Before the above, this was the last WaPo fact-check that mentioned Elder:

The Newsom campaign and Democrats will appreciate the Post’s selective fact-checking.
Gee, wonder what would inspire an insane racist to attack Larry Elder? https://t.co/xNHJ9lov2A

Glenn's irresponsible slander is inciting violent hate crimes. https://t.co/LRzn0U5lQ6

Yes, can we also get a fact-check on if media narrative contributed to the atmosphere that allowed this incident to happen? NOT likely.
