Front-Page Opinion on Terry McAuliffe Pitched as News in The Post

Saturday, May 9, 2009

I found the May 3 Page A1 lead story, "McAuliffe's Background Could Prove a Liability," about Democrat Terry McAuliffe's bid to become Virginia governor, more appropriate for the op-ed section of your paper than for the front page.

That was not a news story. The headline itself was irresponsible and biased.

But since The Post has never been fair to Bill and Hillary Clinton, how could I expect it to be fair to any of the Clintons' friends who happen to be running for office?
