“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.
