IT’S COME TO THIS: Washington Post fact-check admits it was wrong for ‘knee jerked’ defense of Buttigieg’s racist bridge comments.

There has been some revisionism and [Robert] Moses’s achievements are now viewed in a better light. In particular, the anecdote about the parkway bridges has been increasingly questioned, along with other details in [Robert] Caro’s book,” Kessler wrote.

One historian told the Post that “Moses did nothing different on Long Island from any parks commissioner in the country” because all parkways had low bridges at the time.

“Caro is wrong,” a separate historian emailed to the Post, noting anyone could access the beach.

Other historians disagree in the polarizing tale, but the Post’s in-house fact-checker feels “The Bottom Line” is that the liberal newspaper shouldn’t have been so quick to defend Buttigieg.

“Obviously this cannot be easily resolved. Caro quotes one of Moses’s top aides as saying the height of the bridges was done for racist reasons, but increasingly that story has been questioned as not credible,” Kessler wrote. “Buttigieg should tailor his remarks to reflect what is historically unimpeachable — and we should be more careful to double-check on the latest views of historians. Even a Pulitzer Prize-winning book is not always the last word on a subject.”

This is a growing trend at the WaPo:

Washington Post notes that Durham probe indictment casts doubt on previous WaPo reports alleging Trump/Russia collusion.

Media’s ‘fact-checkers’ avoid false narrative Border Patrol agents ‘whipped’ Haitian migrants. The Washington Post, CNN, NBC, AP, USA Today, Snopes all failed to address the widespread falsehood.

● And of course: Washington Post Issues the ‘Greatest Correction’ Ever. “None other than Donald Trump Jr calls the Washington Post’s ‘Let’s Go Brandon!’ walkback ‘the greatest correction in the history of journalism,’ and who am I to disagree?”

In 2015, a WaPo op-ed asked: What Are We Going To Do About Creepy Uncle Joe Biden?

Now we know the “unexpected” answer: Gaslight like crazy to help get him into office and keep him propped up in power as long as possible.
