Does the Post Make Spinner Cry?

Washington Post reporter–and “Tell Them I Didn’t Cry” author–Jackie Spinner isn’t so jazzed about some of her experiences at the Post.

    Q: How has re-entry been at the paper?

    A: (Hollow laughter) I am actively seeking a new beat. I’ve spent the last couple of months talking to Iraqi veterans who have come home. . . . But I have to say, I don’t think my editors at the paper have been as supportive of me coming home as I would like them to be. My fellow reporters have always been supportive.

    Q: Why haven’t your editors been supportive?

    A: Because they don’t know how to deal with somebody like me. They don’t know how to deal with a reporter who has spent as much time as I’ve spent in a war zone. This war is unlike any we’ve known.
