Burner’s talk of college degree murky
Does not say the same thing as this:
8th District congressional race turns on degrees
The first, from the Seattle Times, implies that Burner is falsely claiming she has a college degree; the second accurately portrays the real story, which is that Reichert attempted to smear Burner for misspeaking about her computer science and economics degree from Harvard (she called it an “economics degree”), while falsely claiming to have a four-year college degree himselfon his Congressional web site and in campaign literature. (Reichert, who claimed repeatedly to have a B.A., actually has a two-year junior-college degree from Concordia Lutheran College in Portland).
So here’s a question: Given that the Seattle Times splashed the Burner story across its front page, when will we see a similar story about Reichert’s outright lie?
