Alabama ABC Affiliate Can’t Find One Voter Who Believes WaPo Report About Roy Moore

by Steve MacDonald

Roy Moore Senate candidateThe Washington Post dropped a hit-piece last week, but it’s starting to look like the Washington Post is the one who took the hit.

During a segment that aired on Friday’s broadcast of Birmingham, AL ABC affiliate WBMA 33/40’s 5 p.m. local news, political reporter Lauren Walsh sought out voters in Columbiana, AL to gauge their reactions to the Washington Post report that alleged Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Roy Moore engaged in inappropriate conduct with four teenage girls more than 34 years ago.

None of the respondents according to Walsh told her they believed the Post’s reporting.

To quote a local pollster, “So far it seems the people of Alabama believe Roy Moore is more credible than the Washington Post.

Breitbart is also reporting polling numbers that show Moore, the target, still up by double-digits over the Democrat.

If the story turns out to be ginned up or just false Alabama looks a lot smarter than the Washington Post, along with the Republican Establishment whose strings WaPo tugs. Not that they care. Because, after all, you’re guaranteed to miss 100% of the cheap-shots you never take.

    I never trust national news services. For news like this I read local newspapers online. The Birmingham and Huntsville Sunday issues are reporting polls done as late as Friday show the race tied or the democrat slightly ahead.

    I just got through talking to a good friend in Dora, Alabama who holds an office in the local GOP. He said it’ll either be a blowout by Moore or very close depending on who stays home. However, he thinks the religious leaders in Alabama will deliver the needed votes to Moore. He’s also heard from the ‘grapevine” that coworkers of Moore’s from the 70’s have started to talk to the news services but he hasn’t heard yet what they’re saying.

      My friend in Dora mentioned WT&S Consulting who did the Breitbart poll. He said they’re local and usually pretty accurate.

    I believe what a Potted Plant ™ says over the WaPo, but I cannot believe they could not find ONE voter who believes it? Did they not troll near Dem HQ just to get a reaction?

    Even the FoxNews Sunday show was disappointing. During the panel, all these fairly young people (compared to Moore) from DC and NY “could not imagine” someone 30-ish dating a teenager. This is a classic logical fallacy – they are trying to impress their northern 2017 mores on 1970’s Alabama. Then there’s the dodge of “IF he did these things, then he should step down.” That word IF is the key. Then for evidence they point to the WaPo article. That’s not evidence – that’s reporting. It can lead to evidence, but it isn’t evidence. Asking Charles Lane for his opinion isn’t evidence either.

    Full disclosure: I want to believe Moore.

    Trying to separate out my political desires from the imperative for right and wrong is difficult. If he did something illegal, throw the book at him. Occam’s Razor says this is a hit job. Either way, I don’t envy the voters of AL.

    The question is not whether Moore or the Washington Post is more credible. The question is whether you believe Moore or the women who were quoted. This isn’t a newspaper throwing around unattributed rumors. The woman put her name to the accusations. That takes guts. And, if fabricated, is a crime.

    Nobody with 2 cents worth of common sense does. Except Bruce Currie and rest of fly by-posting pals who slavishly refuse to think outside the box. And that’s what happens when you’re constantly fed propaganda from birth.

    I’m perfectly happy to let Roy Moore defend himself.
    Apparently, Mitch McConnell and the herd of RINOs are not. McConnell is talking write-in candidate.
    No one is asking Menendez to step down. He is similarly accused of having at some under-age prostitutes – and we have travel records and expense reports from within the last decade.
    If the Bezos Post can not dislodge Moore with these accusations, what good are they for future smear jobs. You can only make fun of people from Alabama for so long and they react. That reaction will be held on Dec. 12.
    Just like Clarence Thomas – Roy More is not backing down.
    Can the elite Republicans deal with him on equal footing if he wins?
    Maybe they should look in the mirror.

    • Bruce Currie

      The evidence implicating Thomas as a porn dog was quite strong, which made him a liar as well as a harasser.

    The number of accusers has now reached 4. If it were just one, give the guy a pass. But 4? This guy has a problem, and not just an electoral one.

  • Ed Naile

    A new accuser rushed on stage by Gloria Allred!
    Currently, Gloria is still in arbitration from another “client” who she left with $800,000.00 in legal bills.
    With Allred involved expect at least two, maybe three, more alleged victims.
    If I remember correctly it was 11 with Trump, at least 4 with Herman Cain.
    There is not background on the latest Moore victim except a year book signing.
    Three weeks left.
