All right, I give up. I’ve reviewed for the Washington Post Book World, I consider some of their work interesting, and can almost forgive them for publishing Ruth Marcus, Charles Krauthammer, Anne Applebaum, and Richard Cohen as if they were sane.
But when your Ombudsman claims that your readers “typically demand coverage that is unfailingly neutral,” and cites as an example of “crossing the line” one of your reporters making a statement of fact:
“We can incur all sorts of federal deficits for wars and what not,” Raju Narisetti wrote on his Twitter feed. “But we have to promise not to increase it by $1 for healthcare reform? Sad.”
There is no purpose for your organization to even claim it publishes news.
