The Washington Post Apologizes

Wanna hear a good one? On Sunday the Washington Post ombudsman apologized for his paper’s lack of coverage of the Justice Dept.’s dropping the New Black Panther Party case.

Among other things, he said,

[i]f Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. and his department are not colorblind in enforcing civil rights laws, they should be nailed.

What, pray tell, does the Washington Post think the Obama administration and the Justice Dept. have been doing for the past year and a half? As I have just argued here (read the whole thing, please; it’s short),

if the Washington Post has ever “nailed” the Obama administration in general or its Department of Justice in particular for their flagrant flouting of colorblindness, it must have used a super-quiet hammer and an invisible nail.

Say What?
