Sorry, but I've subscribed to the Post for more than forty years, and I assure you that it routinely publishes op-eds that are diametrically opposed to the its own editorial position.
George Will's column, for example, has been based at the Post since 1974 and is distributed to 450 other newspapers. Aside from baseball and a mutual distaste for the current President, it's hard to think of anything he and the Post agree on. Obviously, I disagree vehemently with this particular piece. But it was not written by the Post, nor does it accurately reflect the Post's editorial position--just as George Will's periodic columns about global warming are the polar opposite of the Post's position on that subject. -----Original Message----- From: 'Antoine Capet' via ChurchillChat <firstname.lastname@example.org> Sent: Sunday, March 11, 2018 4:06 PM To: email@example.com Subject: Re: [ChurchillChat] Hollywood Rewards Mass Murderer - Read All About It!!! Sorry, but I cannot imagine even a "liberal" newspaper publishing "opinion pieces that are not in accord with its own editorial positions". This Indian official's text is venomous - and the paper knew it and deliberately published it regardless. "They hate us", your President correctly said of other people in another context - this fully applies to this Indian official : "he hates Churchill" - full stop. No educated editor (as one may expect of a publication with a claim to seriousness) could miss the fact - and the paper did not publish a paragraph distancing itself from the offensive opinion proffered. So it endorses it by default.

That is not a Washington Post opinion. It is a guest op-ed. The Post routinely publishes opinion pieces that are not in accord with its own editorial positions.

I note that the Washington Post, spiritual home of Trump Derangement Syndrome, continues its descent into the world of tabloid drivel. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/global-opinions/wp/2018/03/10/in-winston-churchill-hollywood-rewards-a-mass-murderer/?utm_term=.4c8ea73c9a3a Dave -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "ChurchillChat" group.
