Vengeful WashPo reporter rats critics out to bosses
More indie reporting on the WashPo reporter who responded to critical emails from her readers by attempting to get the critics fired. What a goon.
When I first reported the story, Schmidt hung up on me and two Post editors failed to return phone calls. Ombudsman Michael Getler’s assistant told me he had just returned from a trip and couldn’t comment. The only initial on-the-record comment on the allegations, in fact, came from National Editor Liz Spayd, who told Jason Cherkis of the Washington City Paper that Schmidt was the target of a “coordinated campaign” and that “[a]t some point, it can get annoying.”
