So now we know what it takes to plead your case before the Powers That
Be in Washington, D.C,: $25,000 a pop, and if you buy ten sessions you
get one free:
Washington Post publisher Katharine Weymouth said today she was
canceling plans for an exclusive “salon” at her home where for as much
as $250,000, the Post offered lobbyists and association executives off-
the-record access to “those powerful few” — Obama administration
officials, members of Congress, and even the paper’s own reporters and
editors.

The astonishing offer was detailed in a flier circulated Wednesday
to a health care lobbyist, who provided it to a reporter because the
lobbyist said he felt it was a conflict for the paper to charge for
access to, as the flier says, its “health care reporting and editorial
staff.”

Quote:
“Underwriting Opportunity: An evening with the right people can
alter the debate,” says the one-page flier. “Underwrite and
participate in this intimate and exclusive Washington Post Salon, an
off-the-record dinner and discussion at the home of CEO and Publisher
Katharine Weymouth. … Bring your organization’s CEO or executive
director literally to the table. Interact with key Obama
administration and congressional leaders.”
