Washington Post editorial vs. Washington Post journalism

    The Washington Post's editorial board wrote today that the Edward Snowden leaks must stop: http://wapo.st/163Hnes

    The Washington Post was one of two newspapers (along with The Guardian) to break stories initially from Snowden's leak: http://wapo.st/163HCGp

    Salon has taken to calling the group of journalists pushing back against the Snowden leaks and other security breaches "Journalists against Journalism": http://bit.ly/163Hwi1

    So should a newspaper's editorial board castigate its own reporters for doing investigative reporting that may hurt national security? This editorial certainly shows a fractured newsroom, at the least.

    I guess the board is free to do what it wants.

    I wonder if the publisher is part of that stance.
