Post Accepts Stuever's Stuffing, Asks for More
Editor and Publisher reports that despite the leak of his anti-local, pro-bigness screed about the Washington Post's decent into becoming the "bulletin board in a middle school social-studies classroom,” WaPo reporter Hank Stuever has not "received anything disagreeable or upset from inside or outside." Okay, maybe one thing: Blogs "put up items like, 'Stuever tells the Post to stuff it.' There was no payoff to that.”
Seriously: We're surprised and pleased that Stuever's critique went over so well. Now, if he can use his influence to something about the Sunday Source -- say, kill it -- we'll work on rubbing out whoever's blocking his way to a Pulitzer.
