Wow. Someone is sending out a robocall that has a very distinct accent to it, and it appears that it’s meant to discredit the Washington Post.
Yes, it’s fake. It’s not real. So. Don’t think it’s real. Because it’s fake.
“Hi, this is Bernie Bernstein, I’m a reporter for the Washington Post calling to find out if anyone at this address is a female between the ages of 54 to 57 years old willing to make damaging remarks about candidate Roy Moore for a reward of between $5000 and $7000 dollars. We will not be fully investigating these claims however we will make a written report. I can be reached by email at [email protected], thank you.”
I mean, wow. How much more brazenly anti-Semitic can you get? Incredible.
And yes, the Post denies that they have a reporter named Bernie Bernstein and that they made the robocall:
“The Post has just learned that at least one person in Alabama has received a call from someone falsely claiming to be from The Washington Post. The call’s description of our reporting methods bears no relationship to reality. We are shocked and appalled that anyone would stoop to this level to discredit real journalism.”
The reaction on twitter is…
The Bernie Bernstein thing is so stupid, so repugnant, and so antiSemitic that it smacks of something right out of the alt-right playbook.

Bernie Bernstein would like to remind all Alabamans that we had the 10 Commandments first

I always thought @washingtonpost made a mistake by giving Bernie Bernstein the Alabama desk instead of Shlomo Meshuga, who earned it
