Don’t screw around with me! Remember when Joe Biden threatened Human Events editor Jason Mattera when he confronted him over his rape/murder claims if Obama’s porkulus bill failed? If you need a reminder, watch the following video:
Now, according to the Daily Caller, Vice President Joe Biden’s office is asking the U.S. Senate Press Gallery to investigate conservative journalist Jason Mattera’s tactics during a recent interview, a process that could result in his press credentials being revoked. Investigate him for what? Did Mattera break the law by having the audacity to ask this corrupt regime a non-softball question?
Mattera, the editor of Human Events and a widely known video ambush interviewer, caught Biden by surprise after asking if he would pose together for a joint picture. While embracing the vice president for the photo, Mattera asked Biden if he “regret[s] using a rape reference to describe Republican opposition to the president’s bill.”
Biden, it turns out, was incorrect. The Washington Post’s fact-checker blog gave him “four Pinocchios,” the worst possible rating it can give to politicians for incorrect statements. FactCheck.org also debunked Biden’s assertions. Those fact checkers used statistics different from the ones Biden was provided.
