Payola & The Post


I was quite critical of the Washington Post’s double-standard when it comes to op-ed writers and government funds in yesterday’s article. Today, Fred Hiatt of the Post wrote that disclosure of potential conflicts of interests will now become part of the paper’s “offical acceptance process” for op-eds. This is a good first step. The Post should also report on the extent of government funding of non-profit advocacy organizations. Taxpayers deserve to know how much of their money goes to such groups.
