Quis custodiet ipsos custodes

And then we write some more

Ms. Howell:

Today Howard Kurtz defended your most recent column, and the false statement that both Democrats and Republicans had received money from Jack Abramoff, as "inartfully worded."

Since you ARE the ombudsman and we write to the ombudsman we have, not the ombudsman we wish we had: What is the Post's policy on insulting the intelligence of the Post's readers?

Isn't it true that the statement was "utterly without merit" rather than "inartfully worded"? After all, no matter how artfully worded, no Democrat received as much as a dime from Jack Abramoff.

Is the Post simply institutionally incapable of admitting error, or is it a matter that the Post is incapable of telling the truth?

I await your response.
