Washington Post Blames Satan For Its History Of Lies
Washington, D.C. - In a brief statement released earlier today, Fred Hiatt of the Washington Post blamed Satan for what he called the Post's "shameful and irrational behavior during the entire course of the Bush presidency and the Iraq war." This strange acknowledgment of the role the Washington Post played in convincing a skeptical nation to go to war was triggered by the unauthorized leak of confidential memos from the Post's editorial board which showed that reporters and columnists from the Washington Post knowingly lied to the American public when they uncritically printed White House and Republican Party press releases under their own bylines and without any opposing viewpoints.
Said Hiatt, "I know that the many lies written in the Washington Post over the last six years have led to an unjust war that has killed hundreds of thousands of people and that our actions at the Post have helped to create a climate that has damaged the very foundation of our constitutional democracy. What can I say? The devil made us do it."
