WaPo Redefines Winning As Losing In Government Propaganda Piece

The government’s favorite CIA run propaganda outlet recently felt compelled to change the definition of winning into losing in order to slander Ron Paul’s epic 2nd consecutive win at CPAC this year.

The criminal government mouthpiece WaPo reports:

sometimes winning can actually be closer to losing – as in Paul’s case – and losing (or at least not finishing in the top few in the straw poll) can mask a winning performance at the three-day convention.

Below is the Fix’s look at some of the less obvious winners and losers from CPAC.


l. Mitt Romney


l. Ron Paul

Clearly Mitt Romney, who lost the CPAC straw poll and looks like a plastic man, was the big winner because he finally came out of the closet and confessed his love of big government. And Ron Paul is clearly the big loser because he took a Cleavland steamer on Mitt Romney’s chest.

This is the only possible out come in the world where Washington Post reporters live.

I mean seriously, these clowns need to get a real job.

"Yes, he won the straw poll for the second straight year. But his speech - heavy on talk of defunding the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq as well as odd pronouncements such as "Government should never be able to do anything you can't do" - displayed the limits of his reach within the GOP. Paul is a sensation, but among only a sliver of the Republican electorate."

These people are grabbing at straws (no pun). They are so desperate to keep major subjects and serious thinking from occurring in the mainstream that they will spin things more blatantly than ever before. This article is amazingly transparent and is another perfect example of the machine at work.

War is peace.

Fuhreedom is slavery.

And when Ron Paul does it:

Winning is losing.

I saw a report on the CPAC on one of my local news stations. There was not even mention of Ron Paul, or the straw poll. The only article about the CPAC on their website is an AP article, which does not make mention of the poll either.

The author of this piece of journalistic tripe ....

Chris Cillizza: writes "The Fix", a politics blog for the Washington Post. He also covers the White House for the newspaper and website. Chris has appeared as a guest on NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, Fox News Channel and CNN to talk politics.

Yeah... no bias there.... no 'influence' there ..... no burning desire to see 'the right GOP candidate' run for the job there....

Enjoy the moment Chris... you won't always be able to 'mold' reality for the masses.....

Translation for Chris Cillizza's message: "Ron Paul wins straw poll but is a loser nonetheless." Way to redefine reality, bud.
