Washington Post and the Lobbyist-Cash Connection

The Post covers its own controversy surrounding plans to host lobbyists, journalists, and government officials (for a fee.)

Even without the newsroom’s participation, the aggressively worded pitch conveys the impression that The Post is offering special interests access to administration officials and lawmakers, raising a separate set of concerns about a dubious partnership with those covered by the newspaper. The Post often questions whether corporations, unions and trade associations receive access or favors in return for campaign contributions.
