Do Washington Post editorial writers read their own newspaper?
April 20, 2006
From Media Matters:
Last week, the Washington Post editorial page put forth numerous falsehoods in defense of President Bush's reported authorization of I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby's disclosure of classified information. The funny thing is, the Post's own reporters had already debunked many of these falsehoods, including in the very same edition of the paper in which the editorial appeared.
That's right: the Post's editorial included claims that are directly contradicted by previous Post reporting. The Washington Post editorial board is entitled to its own opinions Ã¢â‚¬â€œ- but not its own facts.For more information go to Media Matters.
