Surprise: Garbage Media Forgot to Point Out Angry John Lewis Also Skipped Bush Inaugural

Posted by on Jan 17, 2017 at 7:39 am

It’s almost as if the media forgot how to do their jobs, and not only during the failed Obama presidency. They’re still practicing advocacy “journalism” while running with this absurd John Lewis story the past week. Now we discover Lewis is a complete fraud, just like the media gushing over him.

Well, isn’t that awkward. But hey, he’s a “civil rights icon” so we can’t embarrass him, and besides, a couple dozen other irrelevant Democrats are joining him, so historic!

Does anyone in the media with the slightest shred of credibility challenge Lewis on his lies? We won’t hold our breath.

So far we can find one “mainstream” media outlet reporting this.

Georgia Rep. John Lewis’ absence at the inauguration of Donald Trump on Friday will mark the second time he has skipped an inauguration since he was elected to Congress 30 years ago.

President-elect Trump is not, in Lewis’ view a “legitimate president,” he told NBC’s Chuck Todd last week, a comment which aroused a predictable response from Mr. Trump — a trio of angry tweets. At the time, Lewis said it would be the first time he’d be skipping an inauguration as a congressman, but in fact, there was another missed inauguration — also a protest — and that was the 2001 swearing in of President George W. Bush.

“His absence at that time was also a form of dissent,” Lewis’ communications director, Brenda Jones, told CBS News’ Walt Cronkite in an email. “He did not believe the outcome of the election, including the controversies around the results in Florida and the unprecedented intervention of the US Supreme Court, reflected a free, fair and open democratic process. “

Oops. Can we now get back to covering the inaugurations and dismiss these buffoons still unable to cope with the election results?

Crazy thought: Shouldn’t the media have marshaled their massive resources and fact-checked Lewis before humiliating themselves like this?

    He is immune from any criticism because of this.
