Mr. Wiegel Likes The War; Washington Post Objective Reporting

From Blog

On his Twitter feed Monday, Dave Weigel, journalist, posted the following (emphasis mine):

"The WikiLeaks Afghan dump is depressing. Very tired of our effort there being subjected to this kind of crap."

When Glenn Greenwald pressed Weigel to clarify what “kind of crap” he meant, Weigel answered:

"I mean the disclosing in a way that hurts us. It’s not like we’ve been prevented from knowing things are going poorly."

This caused a minor stir among Weigel’s Twitter followers, with one responding:

"You prefer being lied to? You really *have* crossed over to the dark side…"

To which Weigel replied:

"I support the war and agree to disagree with a lot of people on this."
