The Washington Post’s credibility, to the extent it still has any, is on the line. Jonathan Capehart cannot help himself. One shoddy article has now given rise to a second. Both reveal that he does not check his sources, and even more disturbingly, since he is on the editorial board of the Washington Post, he does not care about the facts.
On July 7, 2016, Capehart published his first missive purporting to list “enemies of equality.” He included a chart created by the Paul Singer and Tim Gill funded Freedom for All Americans, allegedly showing a “vast right wing conspiracy” of interconnected groups and people. The chart shows the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) funding Liberty Counsel and Liberty Counsel representing Kim Davis.
There is big problem — the chart is wrong, and so is Capehart. He ignored numerous attempts to contact him.
While Liberty Counsel does represent Kim Davis, it is not connected with or receive money from ADF.
In response to Capehart’s false reporting, I issued a press release and wrote an article correcting the record. But this is where Capehart cannot help himself. In his “truth does not matter” world, he has now written what he must think is a “gotcha” article. But the “gotcha” is on Capehart.
Capehart’s second Washington Post article admits that Liberty Counsel did not receive funding from ADF, but now he claims that ADF sent a $10,000 contribution to Liberty University School of Law in 2013, while I was dean of the law school. There’s the connection … he thinks!
Apparently, Capehart not only refuses to check his sources, he must also have a hard time reading.
