1 / THE HILL is late to learn the shameful adage that “You f•kc just one goat, and you become known as a goat-f•kcer forever.”
2 / Solomon’s reputation preceded him before he joined THE HILL. It wanted notoriety and got it…the wrong kind.
3 / Nobody will read or pay attention to any annotations or corrections. The Administration has sufficiently operated Solomon/THE HILL as useful idiots. A bus is now coming for them to get under.

Please… The Hill just now discovered John Solomon had issues? They knew this guy did not have clean hands when they hired him. He was a hot mess back when he worked for the AP over a decade ago.

Still waiting on the NY Times re Judy Miller. Haven’t those managers who greenlit her work died off yet or are they still lurking?

When this administration is over, I wonder how many people will be Chernobyl-strength radioactive.

“…our dedication to accurate non-partisan reporting and standards…”

So this is from The Onion?

This is crazy. Everyone knew his columns were BS at the time he was writing them. Many of them though were BS in the “we’ll cover minor and misleading and sketchy stories as if they were the important thread” kind of BS that is constructed to be a big lie that still survives a fact check.

Not many, because “we need to move on” and “look forward, not backward”.

Think about those people from this administration who have achieved instant pariah status. Think: Stephen Miller. Dude is so radioactive that, like Chernobyl, he will be placed in a lead sarcophagus when it’s all over.

Isn’t that what an “editor” is supposed to be doing…in real time…before a story is published?

The Hill Announces That It Is Reviewing Old John Solomon Columns

I think they should have a go at Young John Solomon’s columns too.

Good listen about Solomon on On the Media.
The owner of The Hill, it turns out, is a friend of Rudy Guliani.

Translation: Because of our aversion to getting caught spreading Russian disinformation, now that the damage is done we’ll go back and pretend to fix things.
