BuzzFeed Objects To Nasty Sexual Slur Directed at Sandra Fluke;
When They Find Out It Was Actually Directed At Dana Loesch, Suddenly, It's Not Worthy of Remark or Reprinting

If you can follow this, someone Tweeted to Dana Loesch that she should s*** a f** d*** or something like that. As Andrew Breitbart used to do, she RT'd it to broadcast the unhinged hatred and breathtaking hypocrisy of the left.

Well, BuzzFeed, being incompetent, thought that was being RT'd about Sandra Fluke, and made a big stink about it. "Hate" and such.

When it was pointed out to them that was actually directed against Dana Loesch, they simply deleted it from the story, without revealing that it had been uttered by someone on the left towards a woman on the right.

You see? It was hateful and worthy of mass repudiation when directed at Sandra Fluke; when it turned out to be directed at Dana Loesch, it promptly ceased being worthy of rebuke, or even worthy of mention.

Here's the extent of their correction: "We've removed a Tweet that was aimed at someone other than Fluke." No acknowledgement whatsoever that it undermined the Narrative they were trying to get going.
