Jaffe Takes Another Sharp Jab at WaPo

On Thursday, Washingtonian‘s Harry Jaffe went after WaPo yet again — this time, he alleges, for ripping off his story on Kathy Wone, whose husband was fatally stabbed five years ago. In true Jaffe form, he tells it like it is. He writes, “Post writers can’t resist saying they were first; editors love it. In this case, [Keith] Alexander and the Post were second.” Read here.

Jaffe is quite the villain these days when it comes to attacking WaPo. The magazine recently offed his Post Watch column and he reasoned that it simply didn’t hold enough interest to continue. In that column he took a meat cleaver to Executive Editor Marcus Brauchli and reported that the newsroom was feeling rather lackluster under Executive Editor Brauchli’s leadership, that he has “sapped newsroom vitality.”

At the time, WaPo said Jaffe can have his opinions but they don’t share them. We’ve requested another comment from WaPo on Jaffe’s latest column.

UPDATE: WaPo Spokeswoman Kris Coratti tells FBDC, “We are running a correction.” Jaffe had no comment on the matter.
