Washington Post apologizes for selling news services

The publisher of the Washington Post apologized to the paper's readers
this weekend after a controversy erupted over the company's plans to
organize sponsored meetings that would include Washington lobbyists,
government officials and the paper's own journalists. The Post
canceled the first of what it billed as exclusive "salons" at the home
of the publisher, Katharine Weymouth, after critics accused the paper
of seeking to profit from its access to members of Congress and
administration officials, the NY Times reports.
