I Will Charge You Five Hundred Dollars To Talk To Me

The WaPo is becoming more and more of a joke…

From TPM:

This morning, Politico published a story detailing an interesting flier apparently being passed around DC health care lobby circles: a dinner invitation from the Washington Post at the house of CEO and Publisher Katherine Weymouth, selling access to its news and editorial staff and top Obama officials for $25,000 to $250,000. A health care lobbyist passed the missive on to Politico staff because he felt “it’s a conflict of interest for the paper to charge for access to, as the flier says, its ‘health care reporting and editorial staff.'”

It sure is a conflict of interest.  It’s also shameless and deeply immoral.  The dinner has now, apparently, been cancelled entirely.

That said, I am considerably cheaper to access.  $500 will buy you permanent positive coverage on Blogbytom.  Inquiries can be left in the Comments section.

No joke.

Here’s a LOLcat.
