Bloomberg "Reporter" (For Now) Ben Penn: Hey, Don't Overlook The Fact That I Took Out an Official Pushing Deregulation

Virtually a confession that he ran this garbage as a political hit.

Lost in all of this is that Olson was part of a team of political appointees tasked with the heavy lift of drafting wage-hour regulations that are high priorities for Trump White House, business community. They're now down one adviser.

How can you read that as anything other than saying, "You should support me, even if I lied, because I got a scalp for the left"?

Next steps: I want to know who this guy follows on Twitter and who DMs him. I bet you money that he got the political hit from a leftwing organization which shopped it to him.

He should be fired, and of course, so should the "editor" who pretended to fact-check this little pussy SJW's hit piece.

But of course the media doesn't believe in firing anyone for being too zealous a partisan operative.

Will Chamberlain points out that Ben Penn deliberately quoted around a reply specifically congratulating Olson for his "epic sarcasm."

Wouldn't want a clearly-sarcastic statement to be further proven to be sarcasm by quoting a congratulations about the sarcasm.

And so, crucial context was deliberately unquoted.

By the way: Whichever Obama holdover/career liberal at DOL forced this guy out over a plainly-engineered false smear should himself be fired.

People are asking, "Will Olson be rehired?" Who'd want to work for a boss that pressures you to resign over such a fraud?

This is only the first phase of the Unpersonning:

Relatedly, Sean Davis let David French have it for his "if" post:

People are trying to scare Ben Penn with the idea that he'll be fired:

A friend says that not only will he not be fired, but he'll be hired by the New York Times within one year.
