Washington Past drops all pretense of being "objective", sells their soul for 30 pieces of silver.
WASHINGTON POST STOPPED FROM SELLING $25K POLITICO 'SALONS'

WASHINGTON, DC -- Perhaps it should have been called "Pimp my newspaper."
For a steep price, the Washington Post planned to invite lobbyists to the home of the paper's CEO and publisher, Katherine Weymouth, to hobnob with Obama administration officials, members of Congress and even the paper's own working reporters and editors.
At a cost of anywhere from $25,000 to $250,000, the so-called "salons" hosted by the vaunted giant of journalism were expected to put wealthy and willing lobbyists in touch with "those powerful few" in Washington who make all the decisions.
"All that is required for evil to triumph is for good to do nothing."
