The Washington Post has got a thing for Ben Shapiro. Or, rather, a thing for sliming him.

Earlier this week, WaPo published garbage person Talia Lavin’s garbage hit job smearing Ben Shapiro as a far-right Islamophobe who deserves to be lumped in with alt-right, neo-Nazi conspiracy theorists. Apparently, the fallout from that sickening spectacle wasn’t enough to teach them that character assassination is wrong, because yesterday, they were back at it with an “analysis” from Ishaan Tharoor.

“Insane” is far too kind a word for what they are.

Is writing “critics say” or “others suggested” supposed to make what Tharoor is doing less defamatory?

We’d expect nothing less from the brave firefighters devoted to saving democracy from darkness.
