    The clock is ticking .... tick-tock...... tick-tock

    Won't be long now. The paper that Woodstein built is destined for "re-invention" .... if not extinction.

    90% of all news will be transmitted on line within five years. Anyhow,....

    WASHINGTON (AP) - The Washington Post's publisher apologized to readers Sunday for a plan to charge business leaders and lobbyists for intimate dinner discussions with government officials and the newspaper's journalists.

    A flier surfaced last week promoting a plan to charge $25,000 to sponsor one of a series of dinner parties that would include off-the-record conversations with Post journalists and access to Washington insiders. The series was canceled Thursday.

    "I want to apologize for a planned new venture that went off track and for any cause we may have given you to doubt our independence and integrity," { well, DUH-H-H :eek: } Publisher Katharine Weymouth said in a letter that appeared in the newspaper's op-ed section Sunday.
