Jack Evans and Journalism


Rebecca D’Angelo – for The Washington Post

If you want a look behind the curtain at how editorial decisions are made and more specifically how politicians do every single thing they can to control their message, take a look at this story that The Post’s Mike DeBonis told on Twitter this afternoon.

Apparently, Jack Evans thinks it’s “crazy” that being the third person to jump into the mayoral race, in which the incumbent hasn’t even declared his intentions, isn’t front page news. This is shaping up to be what could be the longest campaign season ever. And we’re still more than a year away from Election Day.
