    "Post labels Mayor Vince Gray a "pariah" at convention because of the D.C. delegation's crappy seats."

    No it didn't, an "Outlook" writer did. If it would have been an article by Milloy, you would have mentioned him by name and not as the "Post."

    Are you aware of your bias and the big shoes that you stepped into as the current Loose Lips in a long line of LLs? You are not serving the line well.

    @nana:

    Ann Gerhart, who wrote that item, is a staff writer for the Post, not "an 'Outlook' writer," whatever that's supposed to mean.

    My point is it was an opinion piece by a single person, not by the editorial board. And not reporting. it should be labeled as such with the nam of the person making those claims and not be called the Post.

    It was also a very unfair opinion because dc had the same seats in 2008. Something worth noting by responsible journalists. Not that the Post has many which is why many of us look for other sources. LL used to be one.

    Also here are her "Outlook" articles. they are actually labelled "Outlook." isn't that a definition you should know as a "journalist"?

    Try working a little harder on your reporting and learn your basic definitions. I promise it won't hurt and will actually do the public good.
