UPDATED: Did the WashTimes fabricate its "racist" ACORN attack? Yep

Blog ››› ››› ERIC BOEHLERT

Isn't it strange that the WashTimes' Joseph Curl went to hear ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis speak at the National Press Club and Tuesday and Curl heard comments that no other journalist in attendance heard. Curl heard Bertha call ACORN critics "racist." But I can't find a single journalists from any other news organization that reported from the National Press Club and also heard Bertha call ACORN critics "racist."

Reuters didn't hear it.

The New York Times didn't hear it.

CNN didn't hear it.

Politico didn't hear it.

The Wall Street Journal didn't hear it.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch didn't hear it.

Talk Radio News Service didn't hear it.

Either everybody else missed the "racist" story, or Curl simply made it up. Which one do you think it was?
