UPDATE: WaPo finally runs response to Palin -- but only after running her letter to editor

Blog ››› ››› JAMISON FOSER

On Friday, the Washington Post finally ran an op-ed in response to former half-term governor of Alaska Sarah Palin's recent falsehood-filled global warming column.

In defending the paper's decision to run Palin's op-ed, Post editor Op-Ed editor Autumn Brewington told Editor & Publisher that the Post had received an offer from a professor who wanted to write a response to Palin. But Brewington seemed to be dismissive of the offer: "It is always interesting to see who reaches out to us."

Brewington didn't name the professor, so we can't be sure if she was referring to Michael Mann. In any case, the Post didn't run Mann's column until after running a response from Sarah Palin to Post columnist Eugene Robinson's criticism of her.

I'm sure it's only a matter of time before the Post runs a response from Palin to Mann, and then, eventually, simply starts running daily transcripts of everything Palin said the day before.
