It has been four days since the Washington Post published its misleading story by Jonathan Finer and Doug Struck on blogger Bill Roggio. We linked to Roggio’s response earlier this week. The Post has yet to respond to Roggio’s points in print or to run any corrections.
Today Pittsburgh Post-Gazette columnist and blogger Jack Kelly calls the Post out: “WaPo’s preemptive strike against Bill Roggio.” Kelly calls the article “the journalistic equivalent of a drive-by shooting” and comments: “Drive-by shootings are notoriously inaccurate, and the story by Mr. Finer and Mr. Struck, which ran last Monday, contained so many errors it should be an embarrassment to the Washington Post.”
