Paul Ryan’s dish wash scandal that never was

Powered by Topple

The Obama administration has been dropping one scandalous story after another into the laps of the mainstream media, yet they’ve shown no interest — until Paul Ryan began scrubbing some pans in a soup kitchen.

Never mind the White House’s false narrative on the Benghazi raid — CNN could care less. Never mind that the vice president lied about both Benghazi and the DHHS contraceptive mandate during his debate with Paul Ryan — NBC yawned Never mind the president’s claim of executive privilege over Operation “Fast and Furious” — The Washington Post and the New York Times buried it on page 47 next to the pot roast recipe. The liberal media has now found real red meat — Dish-Gate — and they’re all over it.

Saturday’s Washington Post ran a story about a visit Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan and his wife made to a soup kitchen. According to the Post:

Ryan had stopped by the soup kitchen for about 15 minutes on his way to the airport after his Saturday morning town hall in Youngstown. By the time he arrived, the food had already been served, the patrons had left, and the hall had been cleaned.

Upon entering the soup kitchen, Ryan, his wife and three young children greeted and thanked several volunteers, then donned white aprons and offered to clean some dishes. Photographers snapped photos and TV cameras shot footage of Ryan and his family washing pots and pans that did not appear to be dirty.

The story was then picked up by the other media outlets, including CBS.

Today, NBC reported that after having made a complete investigation, the pots and pans that Ryan washed were in fact dirty. Crisis averted.

Now, if we could just get them to look into those other pesky matters with the same enthusiasm.
