An unapologetic WAPO pushes Jealous over Hogan....

It no wonder the Libs were against Citizens United....the only Corps that could support candidates would of been Unions and newspapers

I'm surprised, most of you should be jumping up and down about another opinion piece, because that's what this is. An opinion piece written by an obvious lefty:
Katrina vanden Heuvel

Katrina vanden Heuvel writes a weekly column for The Post. She is the editor and publisher of the Nation magazine. She has also edited or co-edited several books, including “The Change I Believe In: Fighting for Progress in the Age of Obama” (2011), “Meltdown: How Greed and Corruption Shattered Our Financial System and How We Can Recover” (2009), “Taking Back America — and Taking Down the Radical Right” (2004) and “Voices of Glasnost: Interviews with Gorbachev’s Reformers” (1990). She is a frequent commentator on U.S. and international politics for ABC, MSNBC, CNN, PBS, WNYC and Democracy Now.

The Post will put out a formal article when they make their endorsements (they endorsed Baker during the primary elections) like this one.

Do you doubt that they will officially endorse Jealous?

Yeah, for real. I can't remember a time when the WashPo endorsed a Republican.
But over the years, The Post has endorsed many Republicans.

Republican Robert Ehrlich was endorsed when running unsuccessfully for a second term as Maryland governor in 2006.

When was the last time Fox, townhall, red state, dailywire, etc endorsed a Democrat????

Katrina vanden Heuvel is an opinion columnist. I think the Post has been pretty fair. Their MD politics reporters, Erin Cox and Ovetta Wiggins, are tough and fair. Cox was the reporter that Jealous f-bombed. The Post endorsed Ehrlich in the 2006 race against O'Malley and has endorsed Nancy Floreen over Marcc Elrich in the MoCo executive race. And I thought Bob McCartney's piece on the strength of Hogan's support among the party base, despite his clear breaks with Trump, was quite favorable toward Hogan. The Baltimore Sun's edotoral board is far more predictable and consistently to the left of center. Not the Washington Post.

I don't even know what to say to that except if you think WashPo is fair and center....damn. You must be freaking Karl Marx.
