The Washington Post has issued new Social Media Guidelines
for all employees. From the memo: "All Washington Post journalists relinquish some of the personal privileges of private citizens."
Further: "Post journalists must refrain from writing, tweeting or posting anything—including photographs or video—that could be perceived as reflecting political, racial, sexist, religious or other bias or favoritism that could be used to tarnish our journalistic credibility." Staff writer Gene Weingarten had an inspired Tweet
to mark the occasion.
