NYT’s @arappeport & @steveeder obediently vomit up American Bridge Lefty oppo.

I know that RedState has already covered the remarkably weak-tea ‘revelation’ that the Rubio family racked up some traffic violations, but it’s an even more tawdry-to-Democrats story that we thought.  As in… amazing what you can write when you get fed a story, you know what I mean?

The New York Times Friday report that Republican Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.) and his wife Jeanette have been cited 17 times for traffic violations was written after the citations were pulled by liberal opposition research firm American Bridge, according to Miami-Dade County court records.

Records show that each of the citations mentioned by the New York Times were pulled in person by American Bridge operatives on May 26, 2015.

Ah, investigatory journalism at its finest: although, amusingly, you could say that about the Washington Free Beacon and you wouldn’t even be sarcastic about it.  After all, the WFB pulled the court records and discovered that it was American Bridge that did the research, not NYT stenographers writers Alan Rappeport and Steve Eder.  Which is itself a bit of a scoop: still… American Bridge?  Those are the crazy stalker-people who tried to sneak into high schools! Not to mention got caught last year embarrassing Buzzfeed over that ‘David Perdue signed an insulin pump’ oopsie (SENATOR Perdue would no doubt say ‘hi,’ by the way).

Really: even if NYT writers Alan Rappeport and Steve Eder are that bad at getting their own stories, there’s no reason to use American Bridge as a crutch like this.  There are better rabid Lefty oppo-shops out there to choose from.  Shoot, I’d back the three homeless people closest to the NYT’s main trash dumpster over American Bridge, best three out of five. Although that’s a bit of a sucker bet: after all, since the NYT has clearly decided to throw away its tradition of investigative journalism, it only makes sense that the aforementioned homeless people would have had the best opportunity to pull said tradition out of the trash.

PS: If the best thing that the NYT can come up with to target Marco Rubio is that his wife isn’t that great a driver, well…

  1. Your PS there was pretty much my reaction. If this is what they’ve got to run with then this Rubio guy must be clean as a whistle.

  2. Next thing we’ll hear is how Hillary has NO traffic violations…

    (without mentioning why it’s pretty much impossible for her to have one…)

  3. I for one would like to thank the New York Times and American Bridge for providing anecdotal evidence that there are just some areas where men are superior to women. Perhaps there are others?
    I would also like to thank the Times and American Bridge for reminding people that HRC hasn’t driven a car in over 20 years unlike most Americans.
    Finally I’d like to thank the Times and American Bridge for their thinly disguised invitation to examine HRC’s driving record. Perhaps there are good reasons for the Secret Service to be terrified at the thought of HRC behind the wheel of a car and if she can’t be trusted behind the wheel of a car….

    1. IowaHawk pointed out that the last time Hillary Clinton drove anywhere, Marco Rubio was 6.

  4. The most important detail that NYT peddled from this story is that Marco bagged the cheerleader.

    Every guy knows what they’d have to put up with for that, and a few traffic tickets is pretty goddamn trivial.

  5. this is sure as heck a green flag to target families. wonder if we can get any juicy bits on Chelsea?

  6. To paraphrase Instapundit: They aren’t reporters, they’re stenographers with bylines.
