Selling access, and selling out

We're slashing prices!!  Everything must go!!!

We're slashing prices!! Everything must go!!!

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.
