Washington Post “Salon” Executive Resigns

The Post reports that Charles Pelton has resigned.  You may recall that he was involved in the controvery over The Post’s “salons” for journalists and government officials (for a cool $25,000). 

The dinners Pelton was organizing were advertised to involve Post journalists, Obama administration and congressional officials, and industry executives in a series of sponsored, off-the-record conversations about public policy issues. The dinners were to be held at the home of Post publisher Katharine Weymouth.
