To the Post, There Is No Good News in Bob McDonnell’s Virginia

How much does the Washington Post hate Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell? Well, Northrup Grumman, one of the 100 largest companies in the country, announced yesterday that it is moving its headquarters from Los Angeles to northern Virginia.

The Post puts this story on page A14. It’s the top story in the business section, and it gets a tiny, tiny blurb at the very bottom right hand corner of the front page.

Meanwhile, two yahoos apparently harassed singer John Legend when he asked for directions in Fredericksburg; the Post makes sure to get the governor’s name in the second paragraph of that story.

Oh, don’t worry; the Confederate History month proclamation still crops up in the 11th paragraph of the Northrop Grumman story.
