    Washington Past drops all pretense of being "objective", sells their soul for 30 pieces of silver.

    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.

    Seats closest to Obama post election were for sale.
    the media should have been all over that ... Axelrod sells everything he's a more financial version of Dick Cheney.
