Who is "Timothy F. Kaine?"

by: lowkell

Thu Dec 06, 2012 at 18:09:53 PM EST

Last I checked, our Senator-elect's name was Timothy Michael Kaine, or Timothy M. Kaine for short. For whatever reason, the Kaplan/Washington Post seems to think otherwise (see below).  And yes, I realize that may seem like a minor mistake or even petty to point out, but from what I can tell, it's symptomatic of a broad decline in standards of all kinds - from typos to factual errors to lazy/bad journalism to an almost complete lack of journalistic ethics - at the Post over the past few years. As for the Post's coverage of Virginia politics, it's declined sharply in recent months, both in terms of quality and quantity (for more on that topic, see here). Coming into a critically important Virginia election year, it's not a comforting thought that the Post's institutional knowledge of the Virginia political scene is thinner than a book discussing Ken Cuccinelli's progressive policy positions.  Heh.

He's kin to... (0.00 / 0)

Not sure if the "F" stands for the same thing in both cases (0.00 / 0)
but you never know with the Post these days. LOL
