Re: The Washington Post Is Unfair and Unbalanced


Brother Whelan: Maybe I set the bar too low for “fair and balanced” at the Post. I cannot quarrel with your criticisms of certain Postie turns of phrase and characterizations. I just thought that the Post had done a public service by putting a pretty straightforward descriptive piece about Senate process on the front page. I still think that, despite a few slantings in the narrative, and I still recommend the story to interested readers. And it was I who compared it favorably to the NY Times–but to be fair there, at least the Times’s hysteria was in an editorial!
