Lyin' Les Kinsolving Misleads About Biden
Topic: WorldNetDaily

In his Nov. 14 WorldNetDaily column, Les Kinsolving insults Vice President Joe Biden as "both a liar and a coward," uncritically repeating a Human Events attack on the vice president following a confrontation Human Events editor Jason Mattera staged with Biden. But Kinsolving is not telling the full truth.

Kinsolving writes that "an enraged vice president has complained about Mattera to the Standing Committee of Correspondents on Capitol Hill." In fact, according to the Senate Press Gallery's Heather Rothman, Biden's office contacted the standing committee of correspondents regarding whether Mattera broke the rules with his ambush, but has not filed a formal complaint. 

Kinsolving then bizarrely digresses into a 60-year-old complaint about how one reporter was barred from the Senate Press Gallery allegedly because he was black. He also referenced how WND "successfully won a long-fought battle with the Committee after being denied a pass to the Senate Press Gallery." He didn't mention that WND did so only after launching personal attacks on gallery members.

Kinsolving is probably breathing a sigh of relief that being a raging homophobe and a right-wing hack are insufficient grounds to be booted out of the Senate Press Gallery.
