You would think after the social media beating Glenn Kessler took for his racist hit-piece on Sen. Tim Scott that he would at the very least avoid talking about Scott at all. At least for a little while but no … instead, Glenn went on NPR to defend his crappy ‘fact-check’ on Scott.
Keep in mind, NPR is state-funded media.
Journalist Digs Into Sen. Tim Scott’s ‘Tidy’ Origin Story After Comments On Racism https://t.co/m6rbZpgw7h

‘Digs into …’
Welp, Glenn definitely keeps digging that hole.
You know, I did not have an inkling. I mean, I’ll explain. I gave Scott and his staff every opportunity to respond to my research. On March 26, four weeks before the article was published, I sent his staff many of the documents and an outline of my questions. I was told I would be getting a call from the senator to discuss what I had found. I told his staff I was not trying to play gotcha. I was being completely transparent. And I even sent them a detailed list of every question I hoped he would answer. Ultimately, they said he was too busy to talk to me.
So Glenn went forward with his ‘fact-check’.
Oh look,the racist ignores the first rule of holes.

I love how you managed NOT to fact check Biden.

Because it’s too HARD.
He said so.
Why is a rich white guy going after a black senator? Racism. You are a white supremacist.

Was it your goal in life to become an unethical hack?

Oh no. Glenn did another racism.

And once again we learn that black lives only matter to the left when they are lefty black lives… otherwise….insulting, mocking, and framing with a false narrative are all on the table…
Begs to wonder, how much looking into have you done on tax evader Al Sharpton?

Now this is starting to feel like something of a personal crusade, Glenn.

That seems problematic.
