Ex-AP (now WaPo) reporter John Solomon's two hit pieces on Reid were totally debunked by Josh Marhall and Paul Kiel at TPM, among others. Solomon recently got spanked by the Post's ombudser Debbie Howell, for a nothing-there piece with which Solomon had tried (and failed miserably) to impugn John Edward's character.
