Brit Hume smacked the Washington Post with facts after the publication seemingly misled its readers on the Senate’s tax reform bill.

What happened?

In a story published on Wednesday, the Post minimized who would receive tax cuts in the reform bill and how much taxes would go down. What’s more, the story said a significant chunk of Americans — 38 percent — would pay the same taxes as they do now or receive a tax hike because of the bill.

“Trump has promised Americans ‘huge’ tax cuts, but only 44 percent of taxpayers would see their tax bills reduced by more than $500 in 2019, according to JCT’s analysis of the winners and losers in the plan. The chart below was first reported by The Washington Post after a GOP senator’s office shared it,” the story said.

The story was obviously framed to undermine the reform. It was even titled, “38 percent of Americans won’t get a sizable tax cut under the Senate GOP plan.”
