Both men were made to kneel and kiss the ring.
Williams had a bit more pride and left the Post. Cohen is older, near retirement, and was treated like an animal by his management.
The Post, it's reporters, editors, managers and owners are "dirty". They are not good people and should never be trusted.
I don't get it, the (com)Post has the best comics section in the country, and since they move Dumsbury to the front of the Style page, that idiot no longer gets between me and Hagar. Am I the last conservative to still read it?
I have a political friend who bagged his subscription a few years ago; he re-subscribed when friends kept calling him, wondering if he'd seen his picture and bad press in the Post... He had to stay up with the cr*p they were throwing at him.
The Post also has an awesome sports section, give or take Kornheiser, who's an idiot. I subscribe for two reasons: 1) Thomas Boswell; and 2) Know thyne enemy.
The Post became the Post when the Evening Star died to Walter Cronkite. The Star was the best paper since forever, and the talent went to the Post. The paper lives off its high-profile columnist talent, and that's it. With only a few exceptions, the news reporting sucks. They can't even get out a good local page (sports excepted).
If you ever do historical work going back to the 19th century and early 20th, stick to the NY Times (generally a solid paper all the way through to the 1960s, and certainly through the 1920s) and the Washington Star. The (com)Post owns the Star archives. It bagged the Star in favor of its own pathetic archives for the Proquest digitization project. I'm stuck with microfilm for the Star. It's worth the extra effort.
The (com)Post is an academic profile of business atrophy.
Wow. I did not know this. Was there any truth to the allegations? Or was it just a typical Lib smackdown on someone who was out of line?
