PostSubject: How The Washington Post's Defense Of Its Russian Hacking Story Unraveled Through Web Archiving   Tue Jan 03, 2017 4:33 pm

As the Washington Postís story of Russian hackers burrowed deep within the US electrical grid, ready to plunge the nation into darkness at the flip of a switch unraveled into the story of a single non-grid-connected laptop with a piece of malware on it, the Post has faced fierce criticism over how it fact checked and verified the details of its story. It turns out that the Post not only did not fact check the story until after it was published live on its website, but in its defense of the story, the Post made a number of false statements about what was written when, which the Internet Archiveís Wayback Machine reveals.



When I wrote yesterday about the Washington Post story, Kris Coratti, Vice President of Communications and Events for the Washington Post had offered just a single emailed response and had not responded to any of my remaining questions regarding the Post's fact checking and construction of the article in question. Last night, just over 20 hours later, she finally did respond to two of my questions.

As I noted yesterday, it seemed odd that Burlington Electric issued a formal response refuting the Postís claims just an hour and a half after the Postís publication. This would suggest that the Post would have gotten a response from Burlington if only it had just contacted the utility prior to publication, as is required by standard journalistic practice.
