UPDATED: Because Politico is really just a GOP bulletin board

Blog ››› ››› ERIC BOEHLERT

Talk about insult to injury. Yesterday I highlighted the gaping holes in Glenn Thrush's Nancy Pelosi hit piece which claimed she's "despised" by Americans, despite the fact Politico couldn't point to any polling data--any facts--to support that incendiary claim. The article simply highlighted the dreadful brand of journalism Politico practices on a regular basis.

The insult? I go out to the curb this morning to pick up my suburban NJ newspaper and there, re-printed right on the front page, is Thrush's error-filled Pelosi's piece.

Politico is infecting everything!

P.S. Is Thrush ever going to correct the glaring factual error in his piece in which he claimed Newt Gingrich only became unpopular as Speaker of the House after he led the charge to shut down the federal government? Yesterday I pointed to Gallup polling data that proved unequivocally that Thrush's claim was erroneous. Gingrich was pretty much always unpopular.

You might even say, despised.
