We're in the midst of a colossal battle: do we want recovery or austerity? Do we boldly invest in America's foundation to ensure a robust economic recovery, or do we severely cut back and gut Social Security and Medicare to end budget deficits at all costs?

It's fine for citizens and politicians to take sides. It's not fine for the media to take sides. But that's exactly what The Washington Post has done, publishing "news" articles written by The Fiscal Times: an organization created by billionaire austerity activist Pete Peterson.

The Washington Post has violated the ethical foundation of journalism, forging a formal relationship with an ideologue to produce news content -- not for the oped section, but for the news section. Use this page to tell the Washington Post ombudsman his paper is damaging its own credibility and distorting the public debate.
