Nothing to see here, move along.

Reuters Admits They Sat On Bombshell Beto O'Rourke Story For 2 Years

Of course some liberals may say "So what?", probably because they are O.K. with their president being a former hacker and publishing fantasies about running innocent children down. Of course if some teen did that today (publish such fantasy) they'd immediately be arrested and put in jail (well perhaps if the fantasy was about shooting the kids, not running them down in a car).

Quote:
Reuters reported late on Friday night that their reporter who broke the story about Democrat Beto O'Rourke belonging to a hacker group had the story for two years and agreed to sit on it until after O'Rourke's Senate race against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).


Quote:
Some of O'Rourke's old writings were discovered on an online discussion forum that he started called "TacoLand."

One particular piece of writing from O'Rourke was especially troubling as he described mowing down children in a car.

If a white Republican Texan created a forum called TacoLand, that in itself would be offensive to liberals.

O'Rourke granted the interview on the condition that the information remain confidential until after the election. That's not the same as Reuters making this decision on their own. Presumably, Reuters felt that whatever O'Rourke was willing to contribute outweighed what they would be able to publish based on the confirmation they had at the time.

As for his comments, they were bad. They were also written by a 15-year-old who was probably trying to impress other 15-year-olds who never became famous but were writing similar comments.

Tell that to Judge Kavanaugh and Nick Sandman.

We haven't even gotten to Beto's misogynous writings yet.
