Assertive Chat Questioning

Some nuggets from today’s Washingtonpost.com chats:

  • Perhaps the most intriguing question in today’s “Ask the Post” forum, which this week featured Foreign Editor Keith Richburg, was when someone asked him where he would place two more correspondents if he could: “I’d love to have one more bureau to cover Central America, especially given the large Central American community right here in the Washington area. And I’d love to have an extra person in Africa, so we could get to areas of the continent that we now don’t often get to.” [The Post currently has two "foreign correspondents" in Africa: One in Kenya and one in South Africa.]

  • After running this week’s attacks on A2, the Post is sadly continuing to buy into the “Shark Attack” frenzy, hosting an Ocean Conservancy expert. Perhaps the Post would do well to listen to its own media reporter.

  • Dan Froomkin offers some props to CBS’ Bill Plante, ABC’s Terry Moran, and NBC’s David Gregory for their “outbreak of assertive questioning.”

  • And Tom Sietsema goes after D.C.’s favorite sacred cow restaurant: Lauriol Plaza.
