Former Washington Post contract stringer and current Boston University journalism professor Chris Daly isn't the first former staffer to be trashed by WaPo executive editor Len Downie. (Downie suggested Daly was bitter at a current WaPo staffer because Daly had failed to earn a similar role for himself.) But hey, Downie said much the same about New Yorker staffer Jeffrey Goldberg in a 2005 dust-up over diversity hiring! "I'm sorry that someone who long ago failed to make the grade here would attack our diversity efforts," Downie wrote then. Sheesh, dude!
