Oh... The Extreme Irony
Then, to compound the issue by censoring and shutting down the commenting feature on your blog rather than issuing a simple correction and apology.
That course of logic baffles me. It's tantamount to inviting the running of the bulls to be held in your china shop.
Furthermore... I have yet to see anyone point out the WaPo's "Post Principles" laid out by their founder Eugene Meyer in 1935:
Eugene Meyer's Principles for The Washington Post
Eugene Meyer had a vision of what makes a newspaper truly great, and that vision included serving the public according to seven principles. He offered them in a speech on March 5, 1935 and published them on his newspaper's front page.
|The first mission of a newspaper is to tell the truth as nearly as the truth can be ascertained.|| |
|The newspaper shall tell ALL the truth so far as it can learn it, concerning the important affairs of America and the world.|
|As a disseminator of news, the paper shall observe the decencies that are obligatory upon a private gentleman.|
|What it prints shall be fit reading for the young as well as the old.|
|The newspaper's duty is to its readers and to the public at large, and not to the private interests of its owners.|
|In the pursuit of truth, the newspaper shall be prepared to make sacrifices of its material fortunes, if such a course be necessary for the public good.|
|The newspaper shall not be the ally of any special interest, but shall be fair and free and wholesome in its outlook on public affairs and public men.|
