Snort: WaPo launches wine club; WSJ’s Taranto zings; James O’Keefe offers suggestion

Bless. Their. Hearts.

The pitiful Washington Post has launched a wine club, and members get something WaPo readers don’t: “Satisfaction guaranteed.”

Nope, not The Onion.

Evidently the wine club operates “independently” of the newsroom. Missed opportunity?

James O’Keefe of Project Veritas has a better idea:

Perfect! But journalism is hard. So very hard.

  • ObamaFail

    They’re probably hoping if they get enough people drunk, their readership will stop falling.

    • trixiewoobeans

      Oh, they’ll still be “falling”! Lol.

  • CatHerder

    They left out the h.

    • no good deed

      Layers and layers of fact-checkers and editors, and they still missed it. 😉

      And the cheese.

    “The Washington Post Wine Club is operated independently of The Washington Post newsroom.”

    Which means the Washington Post’s Whine Club might possibly be operated independently of the DNC. Heaven knows their newsroom isn’t.

    • Billie Slash

      I don’t think they are independent of the DNC at all, since their first offering is a burgundy called “Chateau Chappaquidick ’69”.

    Grapes will be pressed by pressers (pun fully intended) rolling over for the O Admin.

    I thought wapo was into Kool-Aid, not wine?

  • Ben Bollman

    WaPo has had a Whine Club for years

  • digitalPimple

    Based on the writing and readership I thought they had the whole ‘whine’ club thing covered.

  • TocksNedlog

    Mission accomplished, WaPo! From now on, NOBODY can accuse you of being an elitist, out-of-touch, limousine liberal, narcissistic, DNC talking-points rag. Well-played.

  • TocksNedlog

    Haven’t they been clubbing us over the head with their whine for, well, like forever?

  • Noah

    “they should start a journalism club”.
    You win the Internet today, o’keefe.

  • SineWaveII

    Well that makes sense. The Washington Post is already a “whine club”

  • trixiewoobeans

    So glad the Limousine Liberals are staying in touch with the commoners…I mean common man.
