First on FBDC: Washington Post Responds to Politico

wapo72.jpgFirst on FishbowlDC: This morning's Politico story that The Washington Post will sell access to Obama administration officials, members of Congress, and the paper's own reporters and editors to lobbyists and association executives for $25,000+ has sparked an uproar in the WaPo newsroom. FishbowlDC has obtained an internal memo from WaPo's Marcus Brauchli in response: "We will not participate in events where promises are made that in exchange for money The Post will offer access to newsroom personnel or will refrain from confrontational questioning. Our independence from advertisers or sponsors is inviolable."
