SALE! Washington Post's Soul; Gently Used

The Washington Post has apparently become the first large daily newspaper to plublicly sell its soul to D.C. lobbyists.

In Today's Huffington Post, Jason Linkins writes: "For $25,000 to $250,000, The Washington Post is offering lobbyists and association executives off the record, non-confrontational access to "those powerful few"--Obama administration officials, members of Congress, and the paper's own reporters and editors."

Incidentally (and ironically), the story was initially broken by Politico, an Internet news organization started by two former WaPo reporters.
