"Everything You Need to Know About the Washington Post in Two Sentences"

"Thanks to Marty Kaplan's piece on the Post's profile of liberal blogger Maryscott O'Connor, we can now encapsulate everything you need to know about that paper in two simple, declarative statements:
1. When the Post encounters a liberal blogger, it then (without having discussed her writing talent, the cogency of her arguments, or her ability to draw an audience) proceeds to mock and patronize her.
2. When the Post encounters a right-wing blogger, it then (without having addressed his insider connections to the Republican Party, offensive insults like calling Coretta Scott King a "Communist," or -- as it turns out -- his serial plagiarism) proceeds to hire him.

There's more that could be said, but that basically covers it."
