Selling access, and selling out
The Washington Post’s publisher apologized to readers Sunday for a plan to charge business leaders and lobbyists for intimate dinner discussions with government officials and the newspaper’s journalists.
When I lived in D.C., I used to love reading the Washington Post, especially on Sundays. Nothing beat waking up early on a Sunday morning, taking a walk in Dupont Circle, and settling into a nice grassy nook with the post and some fresh squeezed juice. When I think about how low the Post has sunk, I shake my head in astonishment. Katherine Graham would be ashamed of the paper she loved and steered through remarkable times.
