You can bet that the story of Joseph Williams, Politico’s White House Correspondent, being suspended for outrageous race and class-baiting is about to go right down the ole’ memory hole.
You had better read this quick, because unless it’s a Daily Caller reporter standing on the shoulders of “giants” to interrupt the President of the United States with a question or a Daily News photographer being shoved around by the star of a low-rated sitcom, the corrupt media protects its own. So you can bet that the story of Joseph Williams, Politico’s White House Correspondent, being suspended for outrageous race and class-baiting is about to go right down the ole’ memory hole:
POLITICO reporter Joe Williams has been suspended pending review of recent controversial comments he made on television and Twitter, POLITICO editors informed staff late Thursday night.
On MSNBC today, Williams made a remark suggesting Mitt Romney was only comfortable around white people. The video was first flagged by conservative website Breitbart.com, which also flagged a series of tweets Williams had written that made fun of the Republican candidate, particularly in regard to his wealth.
“Regrettably, an unacceptable number of Joe Williams’s public statements on cable and Twitter have called into question his commitment to this responsibility,” POLITICO’s founding editors John Harris and Jim VandeHei wrote in a memo to the staff. “His comment about Governor Romney earlier today on MSNBC fell short of our standards for fairness and judgment in an especially unfortunate way.”
