A Month of Washington Post Malfeasance

Consortium News has an informative list (2/15/09) of "some special stories from the previous month" that were neglected by corporate media obsessively "focusing on the end of the Bush era and the start of the Obama era"–here's a sampling:

"WPost Columnist Excuses Torture," by David Swanson, cataloging the excuses for torture. (January 4, 2009)…

"WPost Finds Second Side to Gaza War" by Robert Parry, observing some journalistic one-sidedness. (January 8, 2009)…

"How the CIA Handles the WPost" by Melvin A. Goodman, describing high-level media manipulation. (January 9, 2009)

"WPost Flacks Again for Bush's Crimes" by Robert Parry, recounting another example of media bias. (January 10, 2009)
