…. consistent with our journalistic values ....

The Washington Post has decided that selling access to lobbyists for up to $250,000 is not that great an idea in view of the controversy it has caused. They think that the problem is in the details: the number of “sponsors” perhaps.

Post Executive Editor Marcus Brauchli:

Said Brauchli: "I think there is a legitimate debate right now about whether we should be doing this at all. We thought there was a way to do so consistent with our journalistic values, but in light of this experience, it is clear that this was a mistake."

Marcus, trust us my friend, selling access to the newsroom and to Obama government officials IS consistent with your journalistic standards.

Journalistic values is an oxymoron.
