Washington Post Covers For Obama, Gives 3 Pinocchios Instead Of 4

posted on July 15, 2016

As we reported yesterday, President Barack Obama, during Tuesday’s memorial for slain Dallas police officers, made the patently false statement, “We flood communities with so many guns that it is easier for a teenager to buy a Glock than get his hands on a computer or even a book.” Now, the Washington Post has given President Barack Obama three Pinocchios for telling that lie.

The statement is obviously completely false, yet Obama has made similar faulty comparisons on several occasions. As the Post put it: “This is a catchy talking point that people obviously paid attention to, but it doesn’t make much sense … But the president can make that point without resorting to such an exaggerated claim based in no real statistics, and which does nothing but distract the public.”

Kudos to the Post for pointing out yet another big Obama lie. But shame on the newspaper for not giving the president the four Pinocchios—the highest falsehood rating—he so richly deserved.
