Least Believable Statement Of The Day

July 2nd, 2009at 09:36pm Posted by Eli

From the Washington Post’s pathetic attempts at damage control (not OmbudsAndy’s blog; he’s the source) after getting caught trying to sell access to reporters and government officials at $25-250k a pop:

The flier came out of the office Charles Pelton, who joined The Post recently to find ways to generate business through conferences and events. The Post, like many struggling newspapers, is desperately seeking new sources of revenue.

“There’s no intention to influence or peddle,” Pelton said this morning. “There’s no intention to have a Lincoln Bedroom situation.”

Nooo, of course not.  Maybe Pelton didn’t think any of his target audience would expect anything in return for their $250,000.
