It’s been three days since Politico was busted for its bogus hit piece on Ben Carson. Three. Days.

We’ve reached a point in political coverage where the truth straight-up just doesn’t matter anymore.
Or, put another way: Charles Blow lectures about the truth while repeating a falsehood. https://t.co/lXGcn1U19W

Blow has no interest in telling the truth — and the Times has no interest in holding him accountable for his shameful lies.
@daveweigel It's Charles Blow. No one reads/fact-checks him.

So you know what? If the Times won’t take him to task, we will.

LOL even after it was disproven repeatedly. NYT is a joke. https://t.co/7FDKP4ug5I

@daveweigel I'm SHOCKED that Charles Blow could write something that's intellectually dishonest.
