Washington Post reporter:

    Washington Post Live / YouTube The Washington Post has issued a statement in support of White House reporter Seung Min Kim, who has come under attack after showing Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R) a critical tweet about the Alaska senator from Neera Tanden, President Joe Biden’s nominee to run the Office of Management and Budget. Washington Post Vice President of Communications Kristine Coratti Kelly tweeted a statement from Post national editor Steven Ginsburg Thursday that defended Kim, who is Asian-American, saying that she was practicing “basic journalism,” and that the attacks on her have been “racist, sexist, and ill-informed.” The statement read in part: “A picture of Seung Min showing the tweet to Murkowski was posted to Twitter, which led to a flood of racist, sexist and ill-informed attacks aimed at Seung Min. The racist and sexist attacks have been vicious – and typical. She and other minority women endure vile, baseless...

    Eric Baradat/Getty Images A Washington Post reporter defended the paper’s decision to describe the Biden administration’s first center for holding immigrant children as a “migrant facility” in a new report, arguing that it was much more welcoming than holding centers under former President Donald Trump. The issue arose as the result of a Monday story by The Post’s Silvia Foster-Frau detailing the new center in Carrizo Springs, Texas, headlined, “First migrant facility for children opens under Biden.” Critics noted the paper referred to the facilities in the Trump era using terms that included “concentration camps.” Post senior political reporter Aaron Blake defended the decision on Tuesday in an analysis, titled, “No, Biden’s new border move isn’t like Trump’s kids in cages.'” Blake said the description was justified, in part, because the paper didn’t view it as a “good thing,” and because the Biden administration does not separate children from the adults...
    Washington Post reporter Ashley Parker was lauded for one grabby section of her article on Ted Cruz’s Cancun misadventure, but then lambasted when she highlighted another more lyrical paragraph in the story. Parker posted a Stefon-inflected paragraph from her article “One night in Cancun: Ted Cruz’s disastrous decision to go on vacation during Texas storm crisis” to some high praise for its sensational summary of the episode. “The Ted Cruz scandal had it all: The oversize canvas tote, awaiting its beach debut! The classic dad fleece half-zip! The 6 am scramble to book a return flight! The politician blaming his daughters! The police escort! The adorable puppy! The leaked texts!” Parker wrote.

    Veteran reporter and author Bob Woodward is writing yet another book on President Donald Trump – his third – with a focus on the end of the Trump administration and the first part of the Biden presidency. Woodward will co-author the book with Robert Costa, a national political reporter for The Washington Post. In a press release, publisher Simon & Schuster, which has published all of Woodward’s previous 20 books, did not provide a title or publication date. The publisher noted that Woodward will remain an associate editor at The Washington Post, and Costa will continue as a Washington Post national political reporter, on leave. According to an Axios report, Woodward said that he and Costa are “two pure reporters – what happened and why – and this is a perfect landscape for that kind of work.” Costa is also the moderator and managing editor of Washington Week on...
    Veteran reporter Bob Woodward is set to write another book on the Trump administration, focusing on its final days. Woodward, 77, is known for his historic Watergate reporting alongside Carl Bernstein. He will be teaming up with fellow Washington Post reporter Robert Costa, 35, to chronicle the dying embers of the Trump administration with coverage of the first days of the Biden presidency, according to Axios. Woodward confirmed the report on social media Monday morning. "We're two pure reporters — what happened and why — and this is a perfect landscape for that kind of work," Woodward said. The book, Woodward's twenty-first compared to the first for Costa, will be published by Simon & Schuster. No title or publication date has been announced; however, they are expected to be working on an expedited timetable. The elder reporter will continue to work as an associate editor at the Washington Post, while...
    Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan knocked President Obama over his record on how he treated the press while he was in office.  Sullivan poked fun at the 44th president for becoming a "media critic" amid the launch of his book tour, but pointed out that he has a "credibility problem" as he attempts to weigh in on how to restore trust in the media and combat the spread of misinformation.  Obama suggested that perhaps the solution falls on local journalists to "separate truth from fiction" since "we don’t have a Walter Cronkite," some of observations that Sullivan agreed with.  WASHINGTON POST COLUMNIST SAYS MEDIA 'NEVER FULLY LEARNED HOW TO COVER TRUMP' BUT 'MIGHT HAVE SAVED DEMOCRACY' "But before we herald the former president as some sort of media visionary, let’s cast our minds back to his own administration’s record with the press," Sullivan wrote. "Here’s how I’d sum it...
    The United States Marine Corps fired back at The Washington Post’s Greg Miller over his suggestion that Marine One was used to “whip up” attendees at a campaign rally for President Donald Trump. The exchange began with a tweet from the president that showed a comparison between his arrival —aboard Marine One — at a recent rally and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s arrival at a campaign event in Georgia.

Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 28, 2020 Miller responded to the comparison by suggesting that Marine One had been used to stir up the crowd — or spread COVID-19 — as they waited to see Trump speak. “Is Marine One really swooping over rally crowds to whip up supporters of the president? (Or is this a new way to disperse covid droplets?),” Miller...
    A Washington Post reporter was roasted on Thursday night for comparing President Trump using teleprompters during a campaign rally speech to Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s alleged use during live interviews. “Trump, who has teleprompters set up tonight at his rally in Wisconsin, is ridiculing Biden for using teleprompters,” Washington Post national political correspondent James Hohmann wrote. “Does he think the people in the crowd don’t see the prompters? Or does he think his supporters just don’t care?” BIDEN SPOKESMAN REFUSES TO DISCUSS WHETHER FORMER VP USED TELEPROMPTER TO ANSWER QUESTIONS  Teleprompters have been a hot topic in recent days after Biden’s national press secretary attempted to deflect a question about whether the Democratic nominee used a teleprompter to answer questions from regular Americans Thursday, claiming President Trump's campaign was trying to use the issue as a "distraction." "We are not going to -- this is straight from the Trump campaign talking points," TJ Ducklo told "Special Report" host Bret Baier. "And what it does, Bret,...
    The White House is compiling a dossier of news stories from reporters that it deems "false." White House spokesman Judd Deere said that the White House is "building up a very large" portfolio of stories written by the Washington Post's David Fahrenthold "and others" in response to questions from Fahrenthold for a story that was published on Thursday. The story, which was co-bylined by Fahrenthold, Josh Dawsey, and Joshua Partlow, focused on how President Trump's businesses have been profiting off his presidency. “The Washington Post is blatantly interfering with the business relationships of the Trump Organization, and it must stop,” Deere said in a statement. “Please be advised that we are building up a very large ‘dossier’ on the many false David Fahrenthold and others' stories, as they are a disgrace to journalism and the American people.” Deere did not respond to a request for more information related to the...
    Alex Thomas August 27, 2020 0 Comments In a stunning admission this week, the White House said they are building a “dossier” on Washington Post reporter David Fahrenthold, who has reported extensively on Trump’s finances and won the Pulitzer Prize in 2017 for that reporting. The White House’s statement came on Thursday in response to a Washington Post story that found that taxpayers have shelled out $900,000 to Trump properties. Among other fees, the Post reported that the Trump Organization charged the Secret Service $1,300 for a “furniture removal charge” when President Donald Trump visited his resort in Scotland. In a statement, White House spokesperson Judd Deere said, “The Washington Post is blatantly interfering with the business relationships of the Trump Organization, and it must stop. Please be advised that we are building up a very large ‘dossier’ on the many false David Fahrenthold and others stories as they...
    The Washington Post on Monday accused Vice President Mike Pence of being in "subservience" to President Trump. Pence officially accepted his renomination as the Republican vice-presidential candidate at the Republican National Convention. While vice presidents are expected to be loyal to their commander in chiefs, the Post took it a step further with its profile of the former Indiana governor. "Mike Pence hopes four years of subservience to Trump will lift his political future," the headline of the article read. NEW YORK TIMES FRONT PAGE FAWNS OVER KAMALA HARRIS FOUR YEARS AFTER BARELY MENTIONING MIKE PENCE That headline sparked criticism on social media. "Amazing. This is the headline for a news article, not opinion. WaPo would never write this about Kamala Harris," Daily Caller reporter Chuck Ross reacted. "Wish I could say this headline came from the opinion section. It didn’t," The Hill media reporter Joe Concha said. "It’s called being...
    Could former President Barack Obama eventually return to the White House for a third term? Washington Post national political reporter and MSNBC analyst Robert Costa floated the unlikely idea late Wednesday night following the former president’s anti-Trump speech at the Democratic National Convention. Following Obama’s speech, MSNBC host Brian Williams asked Costa if Republican lawmakers secretly agree with Obama’s claim that “democracy is being threatened” by President Trump. WASHINGTON POST CRITIC CALLS DEM CONVENTION 'AWARD-WORTHY TELEVISION' “They see what happened tonight in the Democratic convention and they see that Obama coalition reassembling. This is such an important time in America, we remember the 19th Amendment. But talking to Republicans and Democrats in recent minutes, it's clear that they're not only talking about the 19th Amendment these days or tonight,” Costa said. “They're talking about the 22nd Amendment that bans a president from going beyond two terms,” Costa continued. “Democrats are looking at that Obama speech tonight...
    Two journalists from The Washington Post and PBS were slammed by critics for cheering on Democratic lawmakers during Tuesday's testimony of Attorney General William Barr. Barr faced an intense grilling from Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee over a wide variety of subjects, including the Trump administration's deployment of federal agents at protests and the Justice Department's handling of the Michael Flynn and Roger Stone cases. Washington Post reporter Carol Leonnig highlighted a fiery exchange between Barr and Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., who pressed the attorney general on what she perceived was a double standard between the DOJ's treatment of Black Lives Matter protesters versus the armed anti-lockdown demonstrators who stormed Michigan's Capitol building earlier this year. CNN'S CHRIS CUOMO SAYS HE WAS 'BORROWING' JOHN LEWIS QUOTE WHEN CLAIMING PROTESTS DON'T HAVE TO BE 'PEACEFUL' As Barr attempted to respond to the line of questioning, Jayapal scolded the Trump appointee. "Excuse me, Mr. Barr,...
    During an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Washington Post correspondent Robert Costa explained that concerned senior Republicans have reached out to the White House for a theme they all can run on during the run-up to the November election and were told that the president is setting the agenda and is keeping racial issues as his focus. Speaking with host Willie Geist, Costa explained that Republicans are worried they don’t have a cohesive message for the 2020 election and that Trump is not helping matters. “It’s evident that Republicans are still searching for an answer,” Costa reported. ” I’m hearing from my sources across Senate and House races that they don’t have a plan at this moment, and it’s the hot summer of the campaign season.” “President Trump is targeting the Confederate flag as an issue. He’s going after Mr. [Bubba] Wallace at NASCAR, one of the lone black drivers...
    A Washington Post reporter called out former Sen. Claire McCaskill over her attempt to knock lawmakers who choose to avoid questions from the press on Capitol Hill. McCaskill has been repeatedly mocking her former GOP colleagues in the Senate who have either avoided reporters or have denied having any knowledge of President Trump's conspiratorial tweet suggesting that the 75-year-old protester Martin Gugino, who was pushed to the ground by Buffalo police officers, was actually an "Antifa provocateur." First, she called out Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., for saying he "didn't see" the president's Monday-morning tweet. WASHINGTON POST COLUMNIST: IT'S 'ACCEPTABLE' FOR JOURNALISTS TO BE ACTIVISTS, 'THEY SHOULD STAND UP FOR CIVIL RIGHTS' "The entire US Senate knew about this tweet almost immediately. That’s how the Senate works," McCaskill insisted. "His communications director advised him of the tweet and there was a discussion about how to handle it. Unless his staff is completely incompetent. But pretty sure...
