Released Emails Completely Expose WaPo 'Fact-Checker' Glenn Kessler

This may be my favorite story in a while. Being a writer on the conservative side of things, we obviously deal with bias in media on a daily basis. If we aren’t writing about it, we are being targeted by it, especially in regard to social media. So when a story comes along that good and fully exposes how the sausage is made at major “news” organizations, it’s extremely satisfying to see.

Enter Glenn Kessler of The Washington Post. Emails have been released from someone the “fact-checker” contacted in the process of trying to orchestrate a hit piece against major CRT opponent Christopher Rufo. What they contain is a fascinating look into how the dishonest hacks at these supposed journalistic outfits operate.

Before I even get into the meat of this takedown, I just want to point out how dumb this “fact-check” is in the first place. Kessler was really going to write a piece about how Rufo was supposedly lying about where he heard about Critical Race Theory? Of all the lies flowing within political life right now, including those coming every single day from the White House, that is what he thinks is newsworthy? That alone is enough to demonstrate the abject bias on display.

Yet, the email gets much worse. We then see Kessler trying to drive a wedge between Karlyn Borysenko (to whom the email was sent) and Rufo, with the claim being made that Rufo had “falsely” said he had an anonymous tipster and that he had stolen the idea from Borysenko. Kessler presents that claim as fact in the email despite not having proven it yet. It’s clear he wasn’t aware of who he was dealing with as he tried to set up this hit piece.
