The Washington Post offers apology for plans to charge guests for dinner.
Press Release Service – Wired PR News – The Washington Post has extended an apology for recent plans to charge guests for a dinner shared with notable journalists and officials in government. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the apology was released after the circulation of a flier promoting sponsorships costing $25,000 for intimate dinner parties that would provide business leaders and lobbyists with the opportunity to speak with journalists and insiders in Washington.
Publisher Katharine Weymouth is quoted by the AP as stating of the plans, “I want to apologize for a planned new venture that went off track and for any cause we may have given you to doubt our independence and integrity.”
The flier reportedly was not given approval for release by Weymouth or editors of the Post.
