Breaking News: Van Jones has resigned as “Green Czar”

MSNBC and FoxNews.com are reporting this tonight. Few details as yet. Story now up at Foxnews.com (h/t izoneguy)

Interesting time to be turning in one’s resignation – midnight Saturday night, on a holiday weekend. I guess this gives the MSM a chance to not report it again…

Ironically, the first info to trickle out seems to be from the Washington Post, who ignored the entire story for quite some time before finally posting a story yesterday.

“On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me. They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide,” he said.

“Lies and distortions?”  Please, Mr. Jones.  I suppose all those videos out there that clearly quote you are “lies and distortions”.  This guy is a piece of work.

And just like clockwork, the MSM weighs in and blames “GOP attacks” for Jones’ resignation.  Not a peep about his disgusting past.

Good update and overview of the entire story from Andrew Malcolm
