The Washington Post needs to pick a lane.
It can either hold the powerful to account or serve as a propaganda arm for the powerful. It can’t do both.
The newspaper, whose masthead proudly declares that “Democracy Dies in Darkness,” scored a major scoop last week when it reported the Department of Homeland Security had “paused” its newly created Disinformation Governance Board. The news came just weeks after the board’s onetime head Nina Jankowicz, who resigned last week, announced the creation of the group via social media.
