Today’s lunchtime links include a battle between Washington Post and Breitbart over the Roy Moore underage dating story.

Mother of Roy Moore Accuser: Washington Post Reporters Convinced My Daughter to Go Public (Breitbart)

Excerpt:

Wells was asked about Corfman’s motivations for going public. “It wasn’t done for politics, you know,” Wells replied. “It was done for personal reasons. And it wouldn’t have been done if the reporters hadn’t contacted my daughter.”

Asked about the timing of The Post interview and why 38 years after the alleged incident her daughter decided to speak out weeks before the election, Wells replied: “She was contacted by the reporter. That’s why.”

Both Politico and Axios this morning spent *a lot* of their morning blasts slamming Breitbart report on WaPo’s activism in Moore accuser case. None of them are asking the important question: How did WaPo know to call Corfman in the first place?

And here’s SNL attempting to mock the Democrats. The part about the statues is funny, but it’s less funny as the skit is reality, not parody.
