The Washington Post is marketing to institutional executives and lobbyists dinners with congressmen, Obama officials and its own reporters, according to Politico.com.
The “salons” will be held at the home of CEO and Publisher Katharine Weymouth.
Price for access ranges from $25,000 to $250,000, according to the flier.
So much for the role of watchdog. At least now, there is no excuse for doubting everything you read.
The new service was made known to the general public by a health-care lobbyist offended by the policy. The flier baldly said the dinners would provide access to the paper’s “health care reporting and editorial staff.”
The Post has finally wised up. It was always in bed with those wanting big government. Now they have figured out they could get paid for it.
Well the Philadelphia Inquirer and the New York Times follow suit?
