BoycottThePost.org was a group that appeared to have similar aims and operating methods to Eye On The Post regarding the Washington Post's coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. BoycottThePost.org was described in an article for WorldNetDaily.com as "a grass-roots organization of professionals and lay people based in the Washington, D.C., area".

In 2002, BoycottThePost.org called on Post subscribers to halt their subscriptions during the week of June 10 to June 17 to protest the paper's "skewed coverage on Israel".[1]

The WorldNetDaily article added that "pro-Palestinian groups" had mobilized for "a counteroffensive to what they see as an orchestrated effort by Jews to sway public sentiment".[2]

As of December 2009 BoycottThePost.org no longer seems to exist and its domain name is up for sale.[3]
