Accuracy In Media

Never underestimate a conservative's ability to overestimate himself. Warner Todd Huston at Breitbart has a stop-the-presses scoop!
New York federal prosecutor Loretta Lynch, the new nominee for attorney general, has a career filled with high profile cases -- and she was a member of Bill Clinton's defense team during the 1992 Whitewater corruption probe.  
As he made his announcement Saturday afternoon, Obama called the two-time U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York a "tough, fair and independent" lawyer.  
"It's pretty hard to be more qualified for this job than Loretta Lynch," Obama said.  
Indeed, the prosecutor has a long career built of some high profile cases but there is one case Lynch was involved in that few are talking about. Lynch was a part of Bill Clinton's Whitewater probe defense team in 1992.
Shocking! But there's just one little problem, as noted at the end of the article.
Correction: The Loretta Lynch identified earlier as the Whitewater attorney was, in fact, a different attorney.
The next day Joel B. Pollak wrote another article on Lynch, adding the Whitewater information in an afterwards, and correcting the afterwards with another afterwards. Perhaps Breitbart should make up some kind of universal end-of-column disclaimer and attach it to every post to save time.

This article was written by a Breitbart employee and therefore we do not guarantee accuracy or even believability.

That would do it.

I guess it's always been this bad but it's still jolting.

I think she should be blocked because of that awful song she sang: "Coal Miner's Daughter."

Wasn't that Jane Lynch?
