Family Of Romney Prank Target Not Real Happy With Washington Post


In their attempt to attack Romney as a mean person (I don’t remember similar stories about how nasty John Kerry could be in treating people like peons coming from the MSM in 2004), the Washington Post forgot that there are real people affected (via Hot Air headlines thingy)

(ABC News) Betsy Lauber, one of John Lauber’s three sisters, spoke with ABC News Tuesday night regarding the accuracy of the story.

“The family of John Lauber is releasing a statement saying the portrayal of John is factually incorrect and we are aggrieved that he would be used to further a political agenda. There will be no more comments from the family,” she said.

We’re awaiting the in-depth story from the Washington Post on Obama’s days growing up. Perhaps something about his college transcripts. But, then, this is the same media who weren’t particularly interested in a young Obama snorting a Class I drug, cocaine, also referred to as “a felony.”

Was what Romney and his cohorts did wrong? Sure. Was it unusual? Nope. Kids are cruel. I’m sure each of us can dig back into our memories and find an incident we aren’t proud of. As someone who went to boarding school for four years, I could provide many “pranks” that were way, way worse. How about planting a tiny bong in another students room right before a dorm search? The recipient was not a pot smoker, but was a real jerk. And it got her kicked out. How about dead birds and animals in a kids shoes for a week? Lots more from that pool of memory (FYI, I was involved in neither.)

Anyhow, the MSM should remember that there are real people out there who do not want to be a part of the political narrative.
