‘Democracy Dies in Darkness’: Did WaPo just get BUSTED covering for Nancy Pelosi? [pics]

As Twitchy told you earlier, Nancy Pelosi gave the GOP a major pre-midterm-election boost when she said that the Dems would raise taxes if they take back the House in November. Even the Washington Post’s Aaron Blake knew that she’d stuck her foot in her mouth:

Nancy Pelosi keeps gift-wrapping talking points for the GOP https://t.co/eqmDy500T7

But it looks like somebody wasn’t happy with him accurately characterizing Pelosi’s remarks:

Wow, the Dems forced @AaronBlake and @washingtonpost to rewrite this article to protect Nancy!

“Appearing to confirm”

Dude.

There’s a video of her saying it’s accurate she would raise taxes. Video. But the Dems can get journos to not trust their own eyes.

Amazing.

I was there as well — albeit, on the second row — and she definitely said it.

Here’s the video. Nancy clearly saying it’s accurate she’d raise taxes.

The article doesn’t contain an editor’s note addressing the change. So yeah, it’s a bit dark in here.
