Media Matters for America is taking its media criticism in one case right to the source — running an ad critical of a recent Washington Post editorial on the newspaper’s Web site.
The ad, the group states, asks ?Do Washington Post editorial writers read their own newspaper?? It links to a Media Matters web page with more information about the April 9 Washington Post editorial, titled ?A Good Leak,? that it asserts contained numerous false claims about the “Libby leak” and President Bush?s authorization of the disclosure of portions of a National Intelligence Estimate.
The organizations states that the Post’s own news reporting contradicts the editorial.
The New York Times responded to the Post with an editorial this past Sunday titled “The Bad Leak.”
