cake-4.jpeg Sometimes journalists have to accept gifts for the sake of the craft.

WaPo’s Reliable Source’s Amy Argetsinger and Roxanne Roberts did just that for their item this morning on Rep. Earl Blumenauer’s (D-Ore.) fruitcakes. They even went so far as to have WaPo’s food critic Tom Sietsema try the cake.

The verdict from all? “Two thumbs up.”

We believe them, but fruitcake just never looks appetizing (as evidenced by our picture here).
