Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America enjoy watching the Washington Post get called out for false reporting on Secretary of State Rex Tillerson by Matt Lee of the Associated Press. They also wonder what Mike Flynn has to say to congressional investigators based on reports Flynn wants immunity from prosecution in exchange for his testimony. And they unload on liberals for sneering at the boundaries Vice President Mike Pence and his wife have established to protect their marriage.

    I think the Pence rule, maybe more to do with avoiding false charges of sexual harassment or misconduct. The media love a scandal staring a social conservative, in this era of an ‘inventive’ media I doubt they’d have any qualms about knowingly trumpeting a false story against a senator or congressman, if there is a decent possibility it could advance their partisan interest.

    What? Why one could hardly imagine such a thing!

     A Washington lobbyist filed a $27 million defamation lawsuit against the New York Times yesterday, accusing the newspaper of falsely intimating that she had a romantic relationship with Sen. John McCain and used it to benefit her clients.

    The lawsuit by Vicki L. Iseman, filed in U.S. District Court in Richmond, focuses on a 3,000-word article the paper published Feb. 21 as the senator from Arizona was leading the race for the Republican presidential nomination. The suit blasts the paper for publishing what it called “gossip and innuendo.”

    Should the Pence Rule apply when one is dining with one’s Mistress Biographer?

    Asking for a friend.

    Agreeing with the above, any Republican with an ounce of common sense should know he’s a target at all times and that any action he takes will be ‘misunderstood’ by the press in the way most damaging to him.

    To quote Dennis Miller about the left ‘ they play rough and they play for keeps, wear a cup’
