LOLwarcriminals - the mustache of pammy landing



These distinguished diplomats and gentlemen have recently appeared on the op-ed pages of the Washington Post, offering their sincere advice to the Obama Administration. Said advice is contained in the alt text above.

Post Executive Editor Marcus Brauchli said he worries "that we are not well-enough informed about conservative issues. It's particularly a problem in a town so dominated by Democrats and the Democratic point of view."
As Eric Boehlert points out in the second link above, the Washington Post provided no such forum to former V.P. Al Gore. Of course, the Clinton Administration couldn't match the stunning national security and foreign policy succeses of the Bush-Cheney junta, so there you go.

UPDATE!

Marcus Brauchli will take questions online tomorrow at 12:00 PM.
I don't know if I can make it, I'm swamped at work. (If only they would leave me alone! But it's more like six.)

Marcus has even more explaining to do than we thought!

GARRRGH!! Isn't it their job to determine who is & who isn't FULL OF SHIT, rather then serve as publicists for spin from both sides?

OK, shouldn't it be their job?

And truth be told, the giving of op-ed space to right-wingers is something new for the Post.

Something like that, S McG.

Also, J—, this slant goes right over the line into their reporting. I'll bet Marcus tries a wall of separation between church and state, err editorial and news, defense.

Assuming that he takes a question calling the WaPoop's ass on the carpet on this topic.

Just to be clear, I was being facetious.

I knew that, J—.

I was thinking that the Post would use the same defense that FAUX is using right now: Everybody knows the difference between the opinion section and the news!

This should not excuse lying on the opinion page. And it's not true in any case.

Tinkers to Evers to Chance! (New blog post thought.)
