UPDATED: What passes for a reporter at the Washington Post these days

Abby D. Phillip today tweeted the home address of Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr., placing his life and the lives of his family in jeopardy from any felon who wants to get even.

Phillip may have been an idiot about it, or maybe it is some punishment for BWR.

Black While Republican.

This is not the first time she has shown herself to be deficient in judgment. I wrote about her on 8 AM August 3, 2016, when she covered Hillary's campaign, which was expensive, incompetent, and utterly devoid of purpose.

Naturally, Phillip cheered it on.

ORIGINAL POST: I was so intrigued by these tweets that I wanted to find out who Abby D. Phillip is.
Turns out she is a Washington Post National Political Reporter who covers Hillary Clinton.

Here are some of her tweets.

So that is how you cover Clinton -- by reporting only flattering things about her, while mimicking the latest Hillary memes against Trump.

She's covering all right.

She's covering Hillary's seat.

Hate the media? Love the Trump?
Read the best two books on the subject.

On November 8, 2016, the American people said, "Trump the Establishment!"

Now read the book that explains how and why the press missed this historic election.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.

And then read the original, "Trump the Press," which chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback

Autographed copies of both books are available by writing me at

  1. Just part of the LibDem narrative that Shrillary is inevitable, along with skewed polls showing her beating Trump by 7-8-9 points. The idea is to demoralize the Trump supporters so they don't turn out to vote on Nov. 8. Same tactics were used against Reagan and GHW Bush. According to the skewed polls Carter had a second term and Dukakis was elected President.

  2. I keep saying, they are not reporters but propagandists. Insty nails them by calling them Dimocrat operatives with bylines. And they feel no shame about being propagandists. As I also say, Goebbels would be proud of them.

  3. It's becoming harder and harder for them to accomplish their goals with subtlety the way they used to. Back when there were only three networks and a monopoly daily paper they could carry on a pretense of objectivity with a slant and subliminally influence people whose lives did not give them a too overt contradiction to what they read and saw. Besides, when every argument is an appeal to authority and there is no other authority available, people tend to accept what they are told, even when their personal experience disagrees with what they are told as they understand that their experiences may be different from that of others. Dunning-Kruger effect and all that. In other words, they could lie to us and get away it. Things are a little different now. Breitbart: We have the internet. We can fact check your ass.
    That's why people are making jokes about Khizr Khan now instead of commiserating with him.
    The adaptation of the Democrats with bylines has been to turn up the volume. Like talking to foreigners with a louder voice is going to make them understand. It works just as well, and has the same effect. They end up looking like clowns and fools.

    1. In most places, when there were only three networks, there wasn't a monopoly daily paper.

      Yet. By the 90s, it was so and that's Where Cacklepants makes her mistake. She thinks it's still like 25 years ago.

  4. "So that is how you cover Clinton -- by reporting only flattering th": I presume the last word is "things"?
    Hillary's "unofficial" Ministry of Propaganda plunges on thru the waves.

  5. More people are on to the lamestream media's propaganda, and recognize that the Compost and others are the communications arm of the democrat/clinton crime syndicate. Look at that hillary rally, 250 people? How many at a Trump rally? 20,000? and the media tells us hilLIARy is ahead in the polls. Right...... the media have become the same kind of congenital liars as the clintons and the democrats. How do you know if obama is lying? etc...

  6. and I think old Warren Buffett has lost his marbles and is ready for the funny farm.

    1. If he thinks he can quote Joseph Welch and get away with it, he has.

  7. Of course, Hillary has Buffett in her corner. Her stance against the Keystone pipeline allows Buffet's trains to keep rolling along.


  8. Dr Goebbels smiles.

    His children have learned. How well has yet to be determined.

  9. Wouldn't be surprised if the WaPo reporters put those flowers at the grave site themselves.

  10. I tend to judge web sites by the quality of their comment sections. Some are amazing. The worst by far, though, I find at online newspapers. I presume that the papers' smarter readers are long gone. This broad may be a perfect fit for the Post's remaining customers.

  11. Poor judgement? No, it was intentional. She is black. She is punishing him.

  12. T says:

    Turnabout is fair play. Someone in the know should publish Abby Phillip's home address immediately.

    For the record as for Warren Buffett, he opposes oil pipelines not because he is eco-friendly, but because the Santa Fe - Burlington railroad transports oil in tank cars. His firm, Berkshire-Hathaway is the major shareholder in that railroad.

    Likewise Buffet supports retaining the "death tax (estate tax) becaue those who pay it usually do so by purchasing large life insurance policies. Berkshire-Hathaway is a large sharholder in many of the insurance policies thaty write those wealth-replacement life insurance policies.

    1. It's called "doxing". Not hard to do.

  13. Black? check
    Female? check
    DC? check
    Out and out Liberal? check


  14. T say

    Furthermore. Sheriff Clarke, the victim here, is a black man, so why is Abby Phillip such a racist? We should also demand removal of racist reporters like Phillip from the Washington Post.

  15. Classic Dem operative with a by-line.

  16. She is eager to be seen burning a heretic in order to move up the order at Wapo. It is now the path to the top under Savarnarola Bezos.

  17. How about putting up her address and phone number and see how the smart arse would cope with that?
