The Washington Post is not the kind of publication that has a problem with its news partners, or in particular, its news editor.
In a recent story titled “Oprah’s America,” the Post reported that the network had invited Oprah Winfrey to visit and interview them.
And, in a column titled “I’m proud of you, Oprah,” the paper wrote that Winfrey, who has a large following of African-Americans, had been a big fan of its work.
But now, The Washington View is reporting that Winfli was not invited to sit down with the Post.
And now the network is facing backlash from the paper’s readers.
Read moreWhat the Post’s critics are saying:The Washington View, a news outlet whose coverage of the 2016 election and President Donald Trump has generated millions of views, has an editor who has never covered a campaign, and a news director who has rarely spoken to a political reporter.
It also has an executive editor who is not a news reporter, and has no history of covering politics.
That was never the case for The Post’s senior editor, David Martosko.
In an interview with The Washington Examiner, Martosky said he was surprised that the Post had invited Winfrey and her staff to come to their office.
“I had never been invited to a campaign event,” he said.
“They don’t seem to think that they have an obligation to follow all the rules.”
The Post, which is owned by Univision, has also had a bad reputation with the press corps.
Last year, it had to apologize for a piece that accused Trump of colluding with Russia.
The story was retracted after the outlet was forced to fire the reporter who wrote it.
But Martosk said the Post wasn’t just apologizing.
It was also trying to make a point about the news organization.
“I think the way we treat the media is not something that I would have expected, given our size,” Martoski said.
He added that the paper had a long history of being open and honest with its reporters.
“We have been an honest broker, not a filter, in the past,” he wrote.
“The Post is a media organization, not just a paper.”
