I don’t believe the story. Think about it, the Post has motive, they have opportunity and most importantly we have seen this M.O. somewhere before. Select someone, preferably deceased make some allegations that pivot around the past life of the deceased. Trot out anecdotal support for your thesis and story. Then pronounce what bad guys conservatives are. Problem is often relatives of the deceased come out and claim that their relative did not mention or did not participate in the events described and the witness’s that were conjured up are found to be questionable or claim that their “testimony?” was taken out of context or misconstrued. Are you sure the author was Jason Horowitz's or is that just a nom de plume? I do believe...

I do believe we have evidence that Mary Mapes and Dan Rather have landed a gig at the Washington Post?

When it comes to opposition research, there is often only one difference between a candidate's vicious negative ad and an "investigative" news report: the undeserved patina of media "objectivity" and respectability.

Take the Washington Post's Jason Horowitz's 5,400-word "expose" on how Mitt Romney may have pinned a boy down and cut his hair in 1965. 1965? That's almost a half century ago. Even if every detail were accurate -- and they weren't -- a journalist could pull a muscle in the hyper-aggressive attempt to make it somehow relevant to the present moment or even the recent past.
