On Being Bold
It’s been brought to my attention by other news outlets that the Post is “provocative” and “risky.” You’re goddamned right it is.
The Post has always been a publication that took risks. It has bad manners and worse language. We’ve taunted and titillated other journalists with the message that the Post will do what they won’t, and we won’t back down. We are in the business of publishing truth, and truth is best spoken in bold words.
