David Maraniss Washington Post Red Diaper Baby

David Maraniss Washington Post Red Diaper Baby --- ===


A new investigative report from Accuracy in Media’s Cliff Kincaid arrives at the definitive answer to one of the most important media cover-ups in American journalism history—why Barack Obama’s connection to a suspected Soviet intelligence agent by the name of Frank Marshall Davis was ignored by The Washington Post during the 2008 campaign. The reporter with the detailed information, David Maraniss, who decided to leave it out of a critical story less than three months before the election, had personal connections to the Communist Party USA. His parents were members of the Moscow-funded CPUSA. But so was Frank Marshall Davis, who had been on the FBI’s Security Index and was the subject of a 600-page FBI file.


“The shocking truth can finally be told,” Kincaid says in his report. “Elliott and Mary Maraniss, and Frank Marshall Davis, were members of the same international conspiracy which had groomed Obama for the presidency, in order to hasten the decline and destruction of the United States.” Kincaid’s report is titled, “The Red Diaper Baby in Obama’s Red Cover-Up.”

Maraniss’s father Elliott, an identified Communist who would go on to write for the “progressive” Capital Times in Madison, Wisconsin, had been writing under pseudonyms for Communist publications and used an alias when he was around other party members. His newspaper union, the Newspaper Guild, withdrew support for him when he refused to testify truthfully about his CPUSA activities. Nevertheless, the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Journalism announced a student scholarship fund in his name in 2014.

Digging through books and congressional reports, Kincaid, the director of AIM’s Center for Investigative Journalism, has uncovered the embarrassing facts about the parents of Post reporter Reand how he has remained silent about these curious connections.
