September 4th, 2017 11:31 AM
Alex Griswold at The Washington Free Beacon relayed that The Huffington Post -- a bit notorious on the Left for not paying writers for content -- published a piece from a Washington Post reporter criticizing Post owner Jeffrey Bezos for underpaying workers.

WashPost Promises to Help Tear Down Former GOP Governor of Virginia

July 30th, 2014 9:22 AM
The Washington Post has deeply and lovingly covered the corruption scandal around former Virginia Gov. Robert McDonnell, and couldn’t contain its excitement over the trial. In Sunday’s newspaper and in Tuesday’s Post Express tabloid, they highlighted this preview in headlines: “It’s Going To Be Ugly.” They couldn't wait for the ugliness.  What neither headline explained was that they were…

April 14th, 2014 8:49 AM
At the end of Maryland’s legislative session in Annapolis, The Washington Post and reporter Fredrick Kunkle slowly realized outnumbered Republicans are outraged with “a slew of what they call well-intentioned but annoying attempts to micromanage people’s lives with bans, prohibitions and regulations, these critics say the state’s latest attempt to boldly embrace the future felt more like the…

A Tale of Two Turncoats: WashPost Hyped GOP Strategist's Support for T

September 10th, 2013 10:53 AM
As the Virginia governor's race heats up in the Washington Post's backyard, the liberal broadsheet is doing its best to skew coverage in a favorable manner for liberal Democrat Terry McAuliffe, a former DNC chief and longtime friend of the Clintons. An excellent contrast that illustrate's the paper's bias is how it has handled the back-to-back defections of Republican strategist Boyd Marcus…

Incredibly Weak WashPost Headline Hides Tough Story on Terry McAuliffe

August 11th, 2013 2:08 PM
The Washington Post ran its second tough front-pager in recent days on Terry McAuliffe, running for governor this fall in Virginia. But the headline at the very bottom of Page One was incredibly bland and weak: “McAuliffe enterprise off to slow start.” The headline inside on A-12 was more accurate about Fredrick Kunkle’s story: “Venture haunts McAuliffe’s run for Va. Governor.” The venture…

Attention Texans: WaPo Compares Occupy D.C. to the Alamo

December 5th, 2011 11:51 AM
It's possible I missed something in history class, but I'm pretty sure Davy Crockett never urinated in public as a sign of protest. I say this because the Washington Post's Pamela Constable and Fredrick Kunkle today compared the Occupy D.C. movement to the Texan freedom fighters at the Alamo in today's 25-paragraph front-page story (emphases mine):

Providing Washington Post Metro section readers a review of the just-closed legislative session of the Virginia General Assembly, staff writers Rosalind Helderman and Fredrick Kunkle today deployed some colorfully loaded language that portrayed conservative Republicans in an unfavorable light.

But that's practically unconscionable to the Washington Post as witnessed by its March 10 article, "Va.budget plan would shrink general spending to 2006 levels."* Here's how Post staffers Rosalind Helderman and Fredrick Kunkle launched into their lament of the pending budget…

WaPo Reporter Finds Experts Skeptical of Crime-reducing Efficacy of Vi

March 4th, 2010 11:18 AM
On Monday, I noted how the Washington Post editorialized against repeal of Virginia's 1993 one-handgun-per-month law. The Post reasoned in its top March 1 editorial that without the law "straw purchasers" could "serve as front men for criminals who come to the state to buy guns in large quantities."But today, in a Metro section front page story, Post reporter Fredrick Kunkle noted that experts in…
