What bias? WaPo whitewashes Rep. Cedric Richmond's sexist Kellyanne Conway joke

As Twitchy told you, earlier this week, Democratic Rep. Cedric Richmond landed himself in hot water after making what was pretty clearly a vulgar joke about Kellyanne Conway looking “familiar” on her knees. Richmond was rightly raked over the coals for that.


The Washington Post’s so-called “Reliable Source” Emily Heil covered the incident, too, but her spin on it was a little … different:


The actual post was pretty generous, too:

Not much reaction from the crowd, since the bit was convoluted, leaving some people confused. But it seemed to some in the audience that he was making a reference to a sexual act.

Seemed to some? Um, his intent was obvious to just about everyone. Except, apparently, to the Post:

On Thursday, Richmond insisted that there was no such intention behind his remarks. “Since some people have interpreted my joke to mean something that it didn’t I think it is important to clarify what I meant, ” he said in a statement. “Where I grew up saying that someone is looking or acting ‘familiar’ simply means that they are behaving too comfortably.”

“I decided to use that joke due to the large social media backlash over her inappropriate posture considering there were more than 60 HBCU Presidents in the room,” Richmond said in the statement.

And that’s all she wrote. Literally. There’s nothing in the article even suggesting that Richmond’s excuse was B.S.


Readers aren’t being very generous in their assessment of the Washington Post’s journalistic standards.



Yep. The take-home lesson here is infuriating, but simple:

Pretty much.
