The shock! The horror! Breitbart.com is shocked and horrified that journalists from the Washington Post approached the mother of Roy Moore’s 14-year old accuser and actually asked her to verify the allegations the young girl had been making over the years.
Every responsible journalist knows that real reporters sit on their well-fed hineys and wait for sources to come to them to reveal juicy tidbits. “Enterprising journalism?” Unheard of at Breitbart, unless they send reporters to a state with the direct objective of tormenting and harassing and slut-shaming the victim who had been telling her story to friends and family for years.
Aaron Klein clutched his pearls, fanned his face and wrote:
Speaking by phone to Breitbart News on Saturday, (Leigh) Corfman’s mother, Nancy Wells, 71, further stated that her daughter would not have come forward if it weren’t for The Post reporter’s alleged actions.
“Alleged actions?” You mean, committing journalism? Getting to the truth? That’s something you could get fired for at Breitbart, right Stranahan?
Corfman’s mother, Wells, told Breitbart News that reporters for the Washington Post convinced her daughter to give them an interview.
“She did not go to them,” said Wells. “They called her.”
“They tried to convince her to do it?” this reporter asked.
“Yes,” replied Wells, matter-of-factly.
Wells was asked about Corfman’s motivations for going public. “It wasn’t done for politics, you know,” Wells replied. “It was done for personal reasons. And it wouldn’t have been done if the reporters hadn’t contacted my daughter.”
Asked about the timing of The Post interview and why 38 years after the alleged incident her daughter decided to speak out weeks before the election, Wells replied: “She was contacted by the reporter. That’s why.”
AAAAAAAAH! REPORTERS! TALKING TO A SOURCE! TRYING TO GET HER TO COME FORWARD WITH HER STORY!!! What next? Reporters investigating wrongdoing at the White House? Someone point Klein to the fainting couch so he doesn’t fall and hurt his pointy little head.
Breitbart.com is a joke. But nobody’s laughing.
