As Twitchy’s told you, the MSM’s narrative surrounding Puerto Rico is crumbling like nobody’s business. The Hill, for example, has decided that dishonesty is the best policy when it comes to reporting what’s actually going on. But they were beaten to the punch by Politico, who published this piece on October 1:

What a coincidence! So was the collapse of Politico’s reputation! Take a look at these corrections to the original post:

Those darn Koch brothers! They probably used mind control to trick Politico into blaming them for Puerto Rico’s problems.
Do reporters who dislike them assume the Kochs were involved in all bad things & automatically write that they're to blame?

Sure seems that way, doesn’t it?
Would have been shorter to tell us what they got correct.

Shorter correction: An earlier version of this article was a complete lie.

Short and sweet.
Wow. I can envision this being narrated via the type of fast talking voice overs used to disclose the nasty side effects in pharma ads

But except for the stuff we totally fabricated, the rest of the story is accurate. Trust us.

How are the corrections becoming longer than the "reports"
Time for some introspection

They’re long overdue.
'there is no evidence' is a good way to describe most reporting these days.

Reason #1489 why journalism is failing the public.
