Now it seems that WaPo is guilty of similar crimes against The Washington Times with the launch “Political Theater” – the bi-weekly video feature starring Dana Milbank and Chris Cillizza that was announced today. You see, the name “Political Theater” is already hard at work at TWT as the brand for Joe Curl’s column.
When FishbowlDC spoke with TWT‘s Jeff Birnbaum this afternoon, he said “although we are flattered by the imitation, Milbank and Cillizza are certainly creative enough to come up with an original name for their video series. We certainly hope that they will.”
So riddle me this: is it hypocritical for Cillizza to use “Political Theater” after his scuffle with ABCNews.com for “The Fix?”
