CNN’s Dana Bash Doubles Down on Harry Reid’s Tax Statement

by Greg Pollowitz

Here’s how the Huffington Post is spinning for Harry Reid:

Harry Reid Romney Tax Tipster ‘Is A Credible Person,’ New Source Tells CNN (VIDEO)

Really? You have to read on to find out exactly what this “new source” told CNN:

I did speak to one source who is very close to Senator Reid who claims to also know who the Bain investor is that Reid spoke with, and insists that it is a credible person and this person if we knew the name we would understand they would have the authority and the ability to know about Romney’s tax returns.

That’s it? Memo: it’s not a “new source” if somebody else gives Dana Bash the same unverifiable information from the same person who allegedly told Harry Reid about it in the first place.

And if you dig deeper into what Bash said, it still doesn’t make any sense. Why would a Bain investor have access or the “authority” to view Romney’s tax returns?
