hands off status at msnbc. an ideological partner of the washington post. reporter david schuster was sus pnded from the network in 2008. his offense? he criticized the then 28-year-old's campaigning on behalf of hillary. the post had no problem criticizing twin daughters of bush 43. they were college freshmen arrested for under-aged drinking. but there was no criticism when college freshman amy carter was arrested. the post has not criticized the obama girls nor should it. but in 2005 the paper published a rather lengthy takedown of the four and five-year-old adopted children of john roberts. bush 43 nominated roberts to the supreme court. and before christmas the post published a cartoon depicting senator ted cruz's little girls as monkeys. yep, the "washington post" won't attack young kids.
