An Ode to Mary Jo

Yesterday marked the 45 anniversary of the death of Mary Jo Kopechne and the cover up that allowed Ted Kennedy to become the "Lion of the Senate".
I was 15 years old at the time and the moon landing pretty much took center stage in the news cycle But I was aware that something had happened at Chappaquiddick Island involving Kennedy and a young woman who died.
Of course the media at the time used the moon landing as the big story to cover up information about the facts surrounding Teddy's total disregard for a human life.
He pretty much skated responsibility for his actions and has never really been held accountable.
Democrats and the liberal media have honed their skills at altering the narrative on many issues since then to hide the truth behind their own racism, sexism and misogyny.

Anyway, over the years the truth behind a lot of these things have finally come out. Unfortunately too late to really do anything about it.
Like holding them accountable.
Over on Twitchy there's a compilation of tweets by Brian Cates (@drawandstrike) that tells the story of Chappaquiddick.

Must read: User @drawandstrike tweets ‘epic rant about Chappaquiddick’

Also there is Y TED that goes into more detail.

If there ever was a more obvious instance of the media not doing their job and exposing their bias this is it.
Hopefully the era of the internet is the beginning of the end of mainstream medias deceptions and malfeasance in support of liberal/progressive democrats.
