Washington Post Not Alone on Corporate-Sponsored "Salons"

Zachary Roth, Talking Points Memo: "Last week, Politico reported that the Washington Post had planned to put on an exclusive off-the-record 'salon' at the home of its publisher, where corporate lobbyists would pay as much as $250,000 to gain access to Post reporters and editors, as well as Obama administration officials and members of Congress. The news provoked an outcry in DC journalism circles -- the Post's own ombudsman called it 'pretty close to a public relations disaster' - and the event was quickly canceled. But the notion that the Post's gambit represents some sort of new and uniquely outrageous collapsing of the wall between the editorial and business sides of a news publication is badly off the mark."

Pay for Play Journalism

Jack Shafer, Slate Magazine: "The off-the-record-for-dollars salon scheme that got Katharine Weymouth and the Washington Post in so much trouble last week prompted TPM Muckraker to flush David Bradley - owner and publisher of the Atlantic - into the open about his salon-happy organization."
