…which didn’t have much to say to Byron York now has something to say:

But there is no getting around the fact that some of these messages, culled from the members-only discussion group Journolist, are embarrassing. They show liberal commentators appearing to cooperate in an effort to hammer out the shrewdest talking points against the Republicans — including, in one case, a suggestion for accusing random conservatives of being racist.

This is in contrast to Tuesday where they said:

The Post’s response was brief. “We do not discuss personnel matters,” Coratti responded. “The Post has standards for its employees and we expect all personnel to follow them.”

I asked whether the Post could add anything to that short answer. After all, this is a serious issue involving at least one high-profile Post journalist, and it is unlikely to go away in the near future. Does the Post really have nothing to say on the matter?

“I’m sorry,” Coratti wrote. “That is all I have to offer.”

It’s looks like the story has progressed to the point where it can’t be ignored, but the wait until friday plan worked, but since Howard Kurtz covered it then it will be on Reliable Sources on Sunday.

Meanwhile here is the memeorandum thread

    -I fail to see where the story is here. Common Datechguy, you don’t seriously believe Fox News and Big Government.com do not compare notes? After this Sharrod incident has blown up in Breitbart’s and Fox News’ face, it is time to deflect.

  2. […] That’s it? The daily caller has been revealing tidbits for days and the only mention is from a bullet point submitted by a conservative blogger? What is this, the Washington Post? […]
