This is an allegory to The McConnell Bind, a method to force corrections of big-media articles containing errors of fact about credit scores.
The corollary, Senate Majority Leader, starts here, and ties inaccurate credit score articles to screw-ups about U.S. Senator Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) position in the legislature. Ignoring one is irresponsible. Ignoring the other is downright un-American.
A Washington Post Writer’s Group piece, released in syndication, states, inaccurately, “Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid predicted at a news conference in Las Vegas that ‘immigration is going to pass the House of Representatives’ and insisted that ‘if [the GOP] were smart, they would take [the Senate] bill’ and start from there.”
But, it is elementary: Senator Reid is the majority (not minority) leader.
The tie-in: In 2009, the Washington Post published this needlessly scary thought: “And a lower credit score means you pay more for the money you borrow. It can also mean higher insurance rates for your home or car, or worse, the loss of a job.”
Of course, employers do not use credit scores, so relax (and don’t believe da Post’s other scribblings, either).
The first attempt at contact (in this round), regarding this matter of American history, was social media. That having failed, email is next, and then, if that doesn’t work, the postcard!
