If the newsroom needed extra help, this responsibility should have fallen on the owners of the paper. Why did a foundation reward a publication that has shown an inexcusable disregard for its reporters and editors, not to mention readers?

The nation's journal of record; America's first draft of history; the Grey Lady, -- the New York Times -- got it wrong and that the crowd-sourced, open-source, oft-criticized Wikipedia got it right.

What possible justification on Earth is there for the Post to publish Sarah Palin on its op-ed page ? She has no authority to write an article like today's piece on cap-and-trade.

When Newspapers Peddle Influence

Even in Washington, it's unusual to see an actual price tag placed on a chance to "alter the debate," as the Post's flier tastefully put it. It was a moment of rare, piquant hypocrisy.
