Official Narrative

Together with the Wall Street Journal and New York Times, the Washington Post has a long established position as a guardian of the official narrative.

Deep state control

When Bertha Champagne, a long time nanny for the Bush family, was killed in circumstances that are still unclear, it took the Washington Post almost a week to report the story.[1]

Watergate coup

Full article: Watergate coup

Washington Post journalists Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein were chosen by deep politicians to carry out the Watergate coup.

War Propaganda

The Washington Post carried an editorial by Stephen Hadley with the headline, “To stop Iran, Obama must enforce red lines with Assad.” Nowhere did it disclose that Hadley is a director with Raytheon, a weapons manufacturer that produces the Tomahawk cruise missiles the US almost certainly would have used had it intervened in Syria. Hadley earns an annual salary of $128,5000 from Raytheon and owns 11,477 shares of Raytheon stock. His holdings were worth $891,189 as of August 23."[2]

Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen wrote in 2009 that "These Persians lie like a rug."[3]

Katharine Graham“We live in a dirty and dangerous world. There are some things the general public does not need to know and shouldn't. I think democracy flourishes when the government can take legitimate steps to keep its secrets and when the press can decide whether to print what it knows.”Katharine Graham1988
