July 15th, 2011 11:48 PM
On Tuesday, The Washington Post's Jason Horowitz mocked Grover Norquist's vigilance (or rigidity) against tax increases as "almost religious" in its intensity, his no-new-taxes pledge a "sacred text."

Washington Post Cheapens 'Code Red' Anti-ObamaCare Rally with 'Hundred

March 20th, 2010 8:13 PM
Is The Washington Post playing favorites with causes that inspire people to exercise their First Amendment rights and take to the streets to protest?
