Will They Get the Imus Treatment?
by

Two of the Washington Post‘s hotshot political reporters had a little fun with a video camera, posted the results on the newspaper’s Web site, and got promptly shut down:

In the video, columnist Dana Milbank and White House correspondent and blogger Chris Cillizza appeared in smoking jackets to discuss the kinds of beer politicians might drink. Milbank said he couldn’t reveal to whom President Barack Obama would serve a drink called “Mad B—- Beer.” That line was followed by a brief picture of Clinton.

The group Women, Action and the Media complained to the Post in a letter signed by 32 women. They called the video “sexist” and “tasteless.”

Does WAM have an Al Sharpton equivalent who will harp on this transgression until the Post cans the reporters? Milbank, at least, appears more flippant than remorseful:

“I regret that we put up that image,” Milbank said, “and while I highly doubt the secretary of state has seen ‘Mouthpiece Theater,’ I would be honored to have the opportunity to apologize to her over a beer.”

Or perhaps Mrs. Clinton will get all Palinesque on ’em.
