WaPo to readers: Fuck off, you big meanies.

Delightful. Just delightful. Writes Executive Editor Jim Brady:

We're not giving up on the concept of having a healthy public dialogue with our readers, but this experience shows that we need to think more carefully about how we do it.

Here's a suggestion, Jimbo -- fire that lying slut Howell, then stop lying to your readers. Does that work for you?

AFTERSNARK: In case you need to know what just happened here, this should explain it all. In short:

  1. Claim you're open-minded and want to have a "dialogue."

  2. Be so dishonest and sleazy that people finally lose their tempers.

  3. Sanctimoniously claim that you refuse to continue the discussion with people who can't keep a civil tongue in their heads, and claim victory.

  4. Rinse and repeat with a whole new group of victims.

: I think Jesus' General has a handle on this situation.
