During an online chat at washingtonpost.com about the recent firings of U.S. attorneys, Stuart Gerson was identified simply as "acting attorney general at the start of the Clinton administration," a position he held for less than two months. Washingtonpost.com completely obscured the fact that Gerson was a Republican appointee and part of the George W. Bush transition team.
A Washington Post article on Sen. Hillary Clinton's failure to disclose to the Senate her role in the Clinton Family Foundation -- co-written by John Solomon, a reporter with a history of sloppy and misleading reports on Democrats' financial dealings -- omitted key information, which, combined with the article's length and prominent front-page, above-the-fold placement, resulted in the baseless suggestion that there is something untoward about the foundation and the Clintons' motivations in establishing it.
Disregarding its own reporting, The Washington Post uncritically reported the White House's claim that "the United States went [into Iraq in March 2003] as a multinational force under United Nations authorization to take military action against Iraq." In fact, days before the invasion, the Bush administration failed to obtain the votes necessary from the U.N. Security Council clearly authorizing new military action against Iraq.
