“They were never a part of the kit, it was inaccurate reporting.” Those were White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki’s words earlier this year when she was asked about reporting that a new “harm reduction” grant program from the federal government allowed taxpayer dollars to end up putting free crack pipes in the hands of addicts. . .
HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra released a statement at the time saying “no federal funding will be used directly or through subsequent reimbursement of grantees to put pipes in safe smoking kits.” . . .
But now, thanks to followup reporting from The Beacon, the truth is again being told — and it’s leaving the mainstream media with a whole pile of egg on its collective face:
