  9. 9. Or Worse, Selling “Access”?<br />Washington Post sells access, $25,000+<br />By: Mike Allen, July 2, 2009 <br />For $25,000 to $250,000, The Washington Post has offered lobbyists and association executives off-the-record, non-confrontational access to &quot;those powerful few&quot;: Obama administration officials, members of Congress, and — at first — even the paper’s own reporters and editors. <br />The astonishing offer was detailed in a flier circulated Wednesday to a health care lobbyist, who provided it to a reporter because the lobbyist said he felt it was a conflict for the paper to charge for access to, as the flier says, its “health care reporting and editorial staff.&quot; <br />The offer — which essentially turns a news organization into a facilitator for private lobbyist-official encounters — was a new sign of the lengths to which news organizations will go to find revenue at a time when most newspapers are struggling for survival. <br />http://sweetness-light.com/archive/wapost-sells-access-to-obama-for-25k<br />
