The Washington Post was once the most respected newspaper in the world. It’s ombudsman, Patrick Pexton, just apologized for a story it ran claiming that Sarah Palin was hired by Al Jazeera America.
Reporter Suzi Parker read the claim on the satirical website “The Daily Current” without realizing it was a joke. It went past her editor Melinda Henneberger as well.
Pexton will be leaving the paper March 1 and there are no indications that he will be replaced. Miss Parker and Miss Henneberger, however, appear to be remaining.
Hat tip Breitbart.com
BTW, the Post, which is a mouthpiece for the Democratic Party, hence a voice of the “little guy”, “working man” etc. has just laid off several dozen people on the business end. What hypocritical greed. Why couldn’t its filthy rich Democrat owners take a cut in pay to save these jobs, hmmm?
In other news, the Post is looking to sell its iconic downtown office building.
Why not just close the whole thing? When it reports as fact things that were written to be unbelievable, and laughable, fiction, then there is not much point to its existence as a reliable conveyor of information.
Al Jazeera Hired Palin Said WaPo LOL
Ferde Grofe was born in 1892 in New York City and is one of the world’s great composers.
Among his works is the Grand Canyon Suite.
In 1950, he scored Rocketship X-M, a B movie starring Lloyd Bridges and Noah Beery Jr., that would one day be mocked on Mystery Science Theater 3000.
Walmart Vice President Jerry Murray sent an internal email, Feb. 12, that some nasty person made public
“In case you haven’t seen a sales report these days, February (month-to-date) sales are a total disaster,” wrote Murray. “The worst start to a month I have seen in my (about) 7 years with the company.”
It appears that the recent hike in payroll taxes is dragging down sales for discount retailers like Wal-Mart as lower-income shoppers have less to spend.
