The Washington Post – all the news that’s fit to scrub.
Earlier this week, Breitbart News caught the Post erasing positive reader reviews for the documentary “Hating Breitbart” from its web site. The in-house Post critic trashed the film, but readers posted mostly positive reviews of the new documentary featuring the late Andrew Breitbart detailing liberal media bias.
The newspaper has done it again.
As of yesterday, the site featured only one reader review of the film even though there were as many as 19 at one point (see below).
Today, a few more are on the site, but each is apparently less than 24 hours old given the respective time stamps.
When the first erasing occurred, Breitbart News reached out to the Post’s ombudsman for an explanation. We didn’t hear back.
We’ll do so again and report on any comment from the newspaper regarding this situation.
UPDATE: Looks like the site restored some, if not all, of the previous reader reviews. The newspaper’s ombudsman, Patrick Pexton, hasn’t responded to two messages sent by Breitbart News on this subject.
