2019.02.27 Pence lacks Foreign Policy

Politico (Jack Shafer) wrote a Pence hit piece claiming that "the human mannequin" was retooled as foreign representative, "despite his scant foreign policy experience". Then it was pointed out that he was on the "House Foreign Affairs Committee for a decade while a member of Congress". Or about 10x the combined experience of Hillary and Barack combined before he won the Presidency and she didn't. That fact obviates the entire story. Politico corrected the story when called out, without mentioning the duration. Then again, to add the "decade" part later.... after the harm was done: knowing that their readers lips will move while reading only the headline. A journalists would have reached out and asked before running the story. Or not written that tripe in the first place.
