R.I.P. WaPo “Mouthpiece Theater”

“I don’t think the series worked as they intended. It was meant to be funny and insightful and translate the superb journalism Chris and Dana do in print and online into a new format,” WaPo Exec. Editor Marcus Brauchli told Howard Kurtz of Cillizza and Milbank’s Mouthpiece Theater video series.

Brauchli killed the series today after it sparked controversy from a joke made about Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Dana Milbank and Chris Cillizza agreed with the decision and apologized in separate interviews with Kurtz.
