Yep, you read that right. That is what passes for “real journalist” reporting these days. Some guy totally told Senator Harry Reid (D-Nev.) a thing. And stuff.

Harry Reid: This might not be true, but some Bain investor who I won’t name told me Romney didn’t pay income taxes for 10 #tcot #catcot

Also, he said your mom wears combat boots and girls have cooties.

This is a U.S. Senator acting like a middle school-er and spreading a clear falsehood for political benefit: http://t.co/Lh4J5RH6 #Dems

harry reid claiming that romney's "father must be so embarrassed" is the ugliest part of that interview.

— David Harsanyi (@davidharsanyi) July 31, 2012

Yep. He invoked Romney’s father and said he’d be “embarrassed about his son.” Senator Reid is, evidently, the world’s oldest junior high-schooler. The media, however, report it as gospel. “Exclusive” gospel, even.

Exclusive: Reid charges that Romney didn't pay taxes for 10 years, citing a convo he had w/ a Bain investor http://t.co/empAVWOH

Apparently Harry Reid making a wild unsubstantiated allegation against Mitt Romney is enough for @politico reporters to blindly repeat it.

— Ryan (@Imperium723) July 31, 2012

The “exclusive” story?

Saying he had “no problem with somebody being really, really wealthy,” Reid sat up in his chair a bit before stirring the pot further. A month or so ago, he said, a person who had invested with Bain Capital called his office.

“Harry, he didn’t pay any taxes for 10 years,” Reid recounted the person as saying.

“He didn’t pay taxes for 10 years! Now, do I know that that’s true? Well, I’m not certain,” said Reid. “But obviously he can’t release those tax returns. How would it look?

Oh, well. A person. He’s not certain, but how can we know? He’s “not certain,” but that doesn’t stop him from claiming that an investor is certain of Romney’s personal business?

How would "a person who had invested with Bain Capital" know about Romney's personal tax returns anyway?

— Philip Klein (@philipaklein) July 31, 2012

Hey, you know who else said something similar lately? The Obama campaign and its surrogates, who said “it’s impossible to know for sure” whether or not Romney is a criminal.

Nice, Harry. Good little parrot-boy! New hotness: Just throw anything out there and add in ‘well, can’t be certain” or “impossible to know for sure.” They are just asking questions! Harry Reid, the new Truther. Can fire melt steel? “How do I know that’s true? Well, I’m not certain,” says Truther Reid.

And the lapdog media will lap it up and “report” it as fact.

Citizens are rightly disgusted by the senator and they decided to turn their disgust into excellent mockery. Hashtags enter the mockage-zone as well: #HarryReidFacts and #ReidRumors.

You guys! Harry Reid only pulls wild rumors out of his ass on Tuesdays! Whew.

LOL! RT @mattdizwhitlock The most unbelievable aspect of Reid's "friend from Bain" is the idea of @HarryReid having a friend #HarryReidFacts

— 1 Mountain At A Time (@RockSolidHiker) July 31, 2012

Harry Reid: I heard that from a Bain investor that Romney was really born in Mexico. Now, do I know that that's true? Well, I'm not certain

— Right Scoop (@trscoop) July 31, 2012

Harry Reid heard a guy say a thing.

— daveweigel (@daveweigel) July 31, 2012

RT @SalenaZitoTrib: Clearly Harry Reid has no problem making serious allegations; there was the whole "Iraq War Is Lost" thing.

Update: The giggle-snorts continue.

Has anybody else hear if #HarryReidisaPederast? Please RT because it's important to have the answer one way or another.

— David Burge (@iowahawkblog) July 31, 2012

If the embattled Reid camp doesn't do something to stop the #HarryReidisaPederast stories, it bolsters the #HarryReidisaPederast whispers.

— David Burge (@iowahawkblog) July 31, 2012

#HarryReidisaPederast – well – I don't actually know that it's true, but what if it is?!? His (deceased) dad would be so ashamed.

— Melon Tulle (@MelindaTulley) July 31, 2012

I don't necessarily have any evidence that #HarryReidisaPederast, but look how old and creepy the guy is.

— Frank J. Fleming (@IMAO_) July 31, 2012

Again, I want to reiterate there is no evidence that #HarryReidisaPederast. It just seems true that #HarryReidisaPederast.

— Frank J. Fleming (@IMAO_) July 31, 2012

An "investor" in one of Harry Reid's crooked companies told me Harry Reid was addicted to boy. #harryreidisapederast

MT @DrewMTips: II don't think Reid is a pederast but until he releases his FBI records we can't know for sure. Can we? #harryreidisapederast

Loved trying to quell the #HarryReidisaPederast rumors, but I have to wake the baby from his nap. That's #NotAEuphemism, @SenatorReid.

— Stephen Green (@VodkaPundit) July 31, 2012

There is no evidence yet that #HarryReidIsAPederast but the seriousness of the charge demands an investigation.

— Jim Jamitis (@anthropocon) July 31, 2012

Paging HuffPo: There is an “exclusive” here! Do we know it’s true? No, but we can’t be certain!

Hour two of the crisis!

Hour 2 of the #HarryReidisaPederast crisis, yet no response from Team Reid. When will we hear denial/cover story?

— David Burge (@iowahawkblog) July 31, 2012

Maybe a weird, creepy old guy shouldn't encourage spreading unsourced rumors? #harryreidisapederast

— Frank J. Fleming (@IMAO_) July 31, 2012

More and more smoke to the #HarryReidisaPederast rumors. Not saying I believe them, but the lack of a denial may be telling.

— L (@OrwellForks) July 31, 2012

The #HarryReidisaPederast hashtag is another big gaffe by the majority leader. What about the gaffe, Sen. Reid? WHAT ABOUT THE GAFFE?!

MT @iowahawkblog: "Alleged" pederast Harry Reid has yet 2 come out of his van & address the #1 trending Twitter topic #HarryReidisaPederast

— rdbrewer (@rdbrewer4) July 31, 2012

Paging DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz! The crisis continues and the Reid camp remains conspicuously silent. What are you hiding, Harry? When will the DNC address this?
