Washington Post FAIL

Washington Post HQ

“For $25,000 to $250,000, The Washington Post is offering lobbyists and association executives off-the-record, nonconfrontational access to ‘those powerful few’ – Obama administration officials, members of Congress, and the paper’s own reporters and editors.” @ Politico

I guess the Post was looking for news ways to make money in an age of declining advertising revenue. You would think they might have found a more subtle approach than a straight up bribing scheme, but what do I know?

The latest news is that the Post is canceling their plans to host the pay-for-access parties uncovered by Politico. However, the paper claims nothing immoral or corrupt would have occurred.


So, what’s the verdict? Is the WaPo officially dead as a credible news organization?
