Washington Post blog site joins the WP conga line

Democrat Media Monkeys

The reporter for the Washington Post’s blog, The Plum Line, is described by the news outlet thusly:

“Greg Sargent writes The Plum Line blog, a reported opinion blog with a liberal slant – what you might call ‘opinionated reporting’ from the left. He joined the Post in early 2009, after stints at Talking Points Memo, New York Magazine and the New York Observer.”

So, Sargent is identified as the go-to-guy that enables the DNC to “help control the narrative on the front end.” He delivers the mail for the Party.
Wikileaks revealed, within the 74 emails where Sargent’s name in mentioned in Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails, that the substance of Sargent’s “opinionated” columns comes not from his keen analysis of political events, nor is it rooted solely in his liberal, political philosophy.  Instead, his particular slant leans heavily on DNC input where support for the Clinton candidacy is, and has been from the start of this election cycle, firmly established.

In short, Sargent is a DNC-Clinton shill on the payroll of the Washington Post. [Full, with examples]

In addition to coordinating his blog columns with DNC communicators, Sargent is a conduit for DNC talking points that travel through him to rank-and-file Washington Post (WaPo) reporters.
Most of us have known for what seems like forever that the Left media are shills for the Democratic Party. Now we have the Mona Lisa example, framed in gilt. What difference will it make?  None.  People who might benefit from this knowledge will never read, nor hear about it in their social media cocoons.

Unfortunately, your analysis of the impact of this "breaking news" is spot on.
