White House and Washington Post Clearing Coordinating Romney Attacks

John Nolte has caught them again - for the third time - coordinating false or misleading attacks on Mitt Romney:
There is something worse, though, and that's when the media coordinates with the Obama campaign, which is something the fallen Washington Post has been caught doing once again.


In almost all cases, stories like this one published at the Post, take days if not weeks to write. Interviews, research, and whatever editorial and fact-checking process the Post still believes in, all takes time. There's also the editorial process involved in choosing when to run the story.  
The same is true for the launching of a political attack. Certainly, campaigns, especially at the presidential level, have become quite good at producing commercials and responses with startling efficiency. But the rolling out of a new narrative attack takes planning, meetings, coordination, and strategy sessions. And like the editorial process at a newspaper, you have to decide the best time to launch.
With that in mind, I give you the following facts:
Wednesday, June 20: The Obama campaign launches a (false) attack against Mitt Romney for outsourcing jobs overseas at the expense of American workers. This attack includes a slick new ad.
Thursday, June 21: The Washington Post launches a (false) attack against Mitt Romney for outsourcing jobs overseas at the expense of American workers.
If you think this is a coincidence, please strap on a helmet for daily wear before you hurt yourself.
Read the whole thing here. The attacks will continue and grow more desperate as we head toward November.
