Two new pieces from Washington City Paper on snowball/gun fallout

City Paper editor Erik Wemple, who's served up many delicious critiques of the Post over the years, writes a comprehensive piece on the Post's coverage of snowball gate ("Washington Post Sits on Eyewitness Account"). He writes on how the Post won't link to City Paper or blogs -- or will only do so only in a disparaging way. And he talks about how they won't even name in an article the source that beat them. Writes Wemple:
"Posted on the Internet" would be acceptable if this were 1997.
Meanwhile, in "Yes, Virginia, Police Outside D.C. Pull Out Their Guns, Too" Dave McKenna talks about what police misconduct cases in the DC metro region are falling off the radar.
