Washington Post: The New Drudge?

Yo! WaPo. Everyone already knows these rumors were lie. CNN already proved it when they first came up in January and yet you make it a front page story? Well, a front page correction is now in order.

What the hell is wrong with you idiots? Did I miss something? Rupert Murdock took over the Wall Street Journal, not the WaPo, right?

Damn.

And in today's Washington Post, what kind of coverage does this major, investigative piece receive? Three sentences buried in the middle of their debate coverage. So, what is their big story of the day?
Foes Use Obama's Muslim Ties to Fuel Rumors About Him

Despite his denials, rumors and e-mails circulating on the Internet continue to allege that Obama (D-Ill.) is a Muslim, a "Muslim plant" in a conspiracy against America...

Actually, calling them rumors gives them too much credence. It would be more accurate to call them blatant lies, yet the Washington Post has decided to give them a national platform. The only thing missing from this story is the siren at the top of the page.
