Washington Post Now Washington Enquirer

Marcus Brauchli, executive editor of the Washington Post, announced today that the newpaper’s name will changed to the Washington Enquirer for the remainder of the 2012 election season.

“Our goal is to provide our readers with the most salacious election coverage in the country. Today’s hatchet job on Mitt Romney’s prep school days is just the beginning.”

At the same time Brauchli announced that Jayson Blair has been hired as deputy news editor and Sari Horowitz has been promoted to national election assignment editor.

Blair was fired by the New York Times in 2003 for plagiarism and news fabrication. Horwtiz plagiarized two paragraphs from the Arizona Republic story about Jared Loughner the man who killed six people and severely wounded former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.

Blair thanked Brauchli for the opportunity to resume his career. “I mean to prove that I can make up facts with the best of the Post’s current writers,” he stated.

“We have more stories like today’s attack on Romney waiting for the right moment to publish,” Horwitz stated. “We do anything we can to discredit him since there’s little we can say that our readers will believe about Barack Obama’s presidency.”
