Helping Chris Cillizza Avoid Any Future Controversy

On Friday Nov. 6, 2015, the main stream media was all over the "Politico" story [lying political smear piece] that Ben Carson supposedly admitted to making a false claim in his book regarding being offered a full scholarship at the West Point Academy.  Of course, Politico ashamedly had to change their false smearing headlines later in the day, when those headlines, as Dr. Ben Carson pointed out, were a complete and total lie.

Yes, this fair and balanced mainstream media was all over this story just like they were all over Obama's undisclosed school records, oops, I mean just as they were all over the dubious associations of anti-Semites and anti-Americans that Barack Obama seemed to gravitate to as a young man, oops, I mean just as they were all over the Hillary Clinton lies on the Benghazi terrorist attack, oops, I mean just as they were all over Hillary's  secret e-mail server controversy, oops.  Well, anyway, they were sure all over the Ben Carson claim of being offered a full scholarship at the West Point Academy. 

I am sure, not meant as any attack on Ben Carson but just as a benign honest tweet, Chris Cillizza, reporter for the Washington Post and owner of the Blog post, "The Fix", on the Washington Post website,  put out this tweet at around 2:30 pm on Friday:

Just to avoid future controversy: I applied to Stanford. They saw fit not to admit me.

Ha, ha, you're a real barrel of laughs, Chris.

Well, the Tales being in empathy of Chris Cillizza, and trying to be of help sent a tweet of their own to Chris Cillizza.
Here is that tweet we sent to Chris Cillizza on Friday, Nov. 6, 2015: [note: using the 'Politico' standard of  "excellence", we may have edited the original tweet, which had to be limited to 140 characters]

Well now that that's straight,Chris, have you ever told families of the Benghazi 4 that it wasn't the video?  You know, just to avoid any future controversy.

 You can't say that we don't try to help out here at the Tales.
