Marty Baron Made The Post Great Again. Now, the News Is Changing. New York Times. What horse manure. Baron as some sort of exemplar of journalistic virtue? When the Post refused to retract or correct its PropOrNot hit piece, and instead put up a bizarre disclaimer that amounted to “We don’t stand by our reporting”? And Baron most assuredly was in the loop; our lawyer’s nastygram went to him.
