Strong debut posting for the new WhyIHateDCer, Liz, who hones right in on the utter lack of honesty in the redredging up of the Chandra Levy story:
Now we have this. The Washington Post hops back into the middle of a seven-year-old story under thin cover of, "Recapping the twists and turns of an already incredibly highly publicized investigation will be a PUBLIC SERVICE because the original investigation LET A KILLER GO FREE." (Editors walk away, whistling, as we all ignore the press's original role in the debacle).
Pretty much spot on. Though, if we're being fair, it is possible that the press was poised on the precipice of doing some serious soul-searching and self-examination on the matter, only to get distracted after everything started blowing up on 9/11. Come to think of it, though, the press sort of had a role in letting those killers go free, too.
