Hey, copy is copy. When you need a story, any story will do. An Alabama high school football coach saying Michelle Obama has a big butt? That’s news, if you’re the Washington Post, so you frontpage it (2:34am, 2013/02/05), top and center, with photo!
Fortunately, the WaPo is a liberal lamestreamer, so real Americans will know they’re just reporting the truf, let the cowchips fall where they may.
