WaPo Deletes Then Restores Revealing Kamala Harris Anecdote

Winston Smith would never want for work under the Biden’s Handlers Administration. His job in 1984 was to revise history to comply with the current party line. His job now would be to retroactively alter news stories so as to cast Democrats in the best possible light — then alter them again after corrupt publications like the Washington Post get caught playing favorites.

From Reason:

When The Washington Post published a 2019 campaign trail feature about then-presidential hopeful Kamala Harris’ close relationship with her sister, it opened with a memorable anecdote in which Harris bizarrely compared the rigors of the campaign trail to…life behind bars.

And then proceeded to laugh—at the idea of an inmate begging for a sip of water.

It was an extremely cringeworthy moment, even by the high standards set by Harris’ failed presidential campaign. But now that Harris is vice president, that awful moment has seemingly vanished from the Post’s website after the paper “updated” the piece earlier this month.

In the excised piece, Harris compares being able to take a SoulCycle class during a campaign to a starving prisoner getting a morsel of food. The following was erased:

“It’s a treat that a prisoner gets when they ask for, ‘A morsel of food please,’ ” Kamala said shoving her hands forward as if clutching a metal plate, her voice now trembling like an old British man locked in a Dickensian jail cell. “‘And water! I just want wahtahhh….’Your standards really go out the f—ing window.”

Kamala burst into laughter.

We all know how pleasant Harris’s laughter can be.

It was a shame to put the retracted part down the memory hole:

The scene was a brilliant bit of reporting and writing because it did what few political features can accomplish: showing, rather than telling, something about the candidate at the center. Harris made her name as a prosecutor, and her track record includes defending dirty cops and laughing off criticism of her history of throwing poor parents in jail when their kids missed school. The Post profile provided a mask-slipping moment that seemed to perfectly capture a warped sense of justice and lack of basic human dignity…

Was the unflattering information retracted under pressure? Maybe.

Molly Gannon Conway, the Post’s communications manager, … did not respond to a question about whether Harris’ team had requested the change. The vice president’s office did not return a request for comment.

Even WaPo, arrogant as it is, can be shamed by public exposure:

UPDATE: As of 1:15 p.m. on January 22, The Washington Post has updated its website and URLs to restore the original version of the Kamala Harris profile…

Democracy Dies in Darkness, all right. That’s why we need to keep klieg lights trained on the liberal establishment media.
