The US Report is covering events with U.S. congressman Col. Allen West in Jacksonville today. West is running for reelection in the 18th congressional district. He'll be busy in the First Coast City from morning 'til evening, and we'll have some content up about that as the day progesses.
Meanwhile, we'll also be posting thoughts on the hit job The Washington Post did on Gov. Mitt Romney (Mass.) about an incident that happened almost half a century ago. The takeaway, other than the piece is a hit job, is that the Post appears to be stereotyping haircuts.
Considering some sordid events in the newspaper's recent and distant past, I thought it might be useful to provide a bit of WaPo history to put the hit job on Romney in the context of the times.
What was the Post doing almost 50 years ago?
