WaPo Sets New Guidelines for Events

Yesterday afternoon, Marcus Brauchli notified WaPo staff that new guidelines for the newsroom’s participation in conferences and special events had been completed. Brauchli said:

The guidelines are important to upholding our journalistic independence and credibility, and when followed will help to ensure our integrity. They will be posted on The Source as part of our effort to overhaul and update our standards and ethics policies.

Created by Eric Lieberman and Milton Coleman, the guidelines were drafted in response to Katherine Weymouth‘s “Salon” debacle last summer.

Weymouth Sets New Standards for WaPo Events v. Editorial Access

Internal memo from WaPo Publisher Katharine Weymouth in response to last week’s pay-for-play fiasco:

I hope you had a chance to read my letter in Sunday’s paper. I wanted to let you know that I’ve asked Eric Lieberman, our General Counsel, to review recent events to make sure that our business processes are consistent with, and will not in any way compromise, our journalism. Simultaneously, I’ve asked Marcus and Milton Coleman to codify parameters for Post newsroom participation in live events. As we continue to pursue new and promising lines of business, these measures should help us conduct our business activities effectively and appropriately.
