Howell On The Post’s Potential Conflicts Of Interests

Post Ombudsman Deb Howell weighs in on

…whether the Post erred in not disclosing, in a review of Lisa See’s new novel “Peony in Love,” that See is the daughter of Carolyn See, a frequent contributor to the Post’s Book World.

…whether the Post should mention that Elizabeth Cheney is the vice president’s daughter whenever she pens an op-ed.

…whether it was appropriate for Stephen Hunter, who says that he’s personally (but not professionally) a conservative, to review liberal Michael Moore’s “Sicko.”

…whether the Post erred in not mentioning that Michael Gerson is a Washington Post contributor when his name appeared in the Post’s recent “Angler” series.
