Liberal Bias:

Under pressure from its in-house union and left-wing activists, the Washington Post pulled its sponsorship of a September 11 memorial walk organized by the Department of Defense. The event, dubbed ?¢â??¬???Freedom Walk,?¢â??¬  will honor victims of 9/11 and salute military veterans.

After the Post?¢â??¬â??¢s own reporters rebelled, claiming the event endorsed the Iraq War, the newspaper?¢â??¬â??¢s executives pulled the plug. It will instead make a financial contribution to the Pentagon Memorial Fund. The Media Research Center?¢â??¬â??¢s Tim Graham notes, however, that the Post (along with about a dozen other media outlets) is still sponsoring the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association conference scheduled for next month in Chicago, about which there has been no outcry. Rick Weiss, a Post reporter and its Newspaper Guild representative, told HUMAN EVENTS the Post shouldn?¢â??¬â??¢t be involved with any overtly political event–liberal or conservative. Weiss said the union hadn?¢â??¬â??¢t discussed the conference, but promised to raise the issue at its next meeting. The Post?¢â??¬â??¢s official spokesman, Eric Grant, didn?¢â??¬â??¢t respond to HUMAN EVENTS?¢â??¬â??¢ inquiry.
