Editor repeats: Congressmen don’t lie

Despite all the well-deserved mockery he received, the “Investigative Editor” of McClatchy’s Washington Bureau is standing by his position that Congressmen can be trusted to tell the truth:

I say we checked it out and stand by the story and really, and I mean this, can’t believe that anyone – congressman or garbageman – would make up this fact that one of the nastiest racist terms was hurled.

He simply can’t imagine that a Congressman could make up a racially charged incident for political purposes. In fact, he was so sure, he wouldn’t even talk to an eyewitness who contradicted his service’s reporting. This guy is in charge of investigative reporting.
