Washington Post affirmative action hire, Wesley Lowery, was charged yesterday for trespassing and interfering with a police officer. It’s about time.
I predicted as much last year but was mocked for it by Lowery and the Huffington Post’s Ryan Reilly, who was also charged.
Lowery’s apparently been stalking me on Facebook even though we aren’t friends.
So much for my declining relevance, eh?

Lowery should definitely be fired from the Washington Post. Lowery lied last year about being profiled by the police for his skin color. (The police said he was Middle Eastern, not Black.)
Lowery has a history of making things up and quoting soon-to-be-indicted con man seriously. He falsely accused me of being a white supremacist and quoted arsonist (and insurance fraudster) Carlton Lee claiming that there had been 70+ threats by the Ku Klux Klan against his “church.”
Lowery also acts more like an activist than a journalist. He ignored Michael Brown’s violent streak and “reported” that Brown rapped about God–even though Brown’s raps are violent.
And now he’s increasing the costs of the Washington Post, who will have to spring for his lawyer. Amazon’s Jeff Bezos can likely afford the tab but I sure hope it gets expensive. Media stocks took a tumble last week, thanks to the advertising platforms. I hope this kind of thing continues.
How long before the Washington Post sees the writing on the wall?
