This is what they're capable of. And what they're willing to do to get their guy elected. From 2008:
"Even by the usual standards, the Washington Post’s coverage of the Virginia Senate race between incumbent George Allen and former Secretary of the Navy Jim Webb has been remarkably one-sided.

That in a news ... paper.
Turn that dial to today:

Mitt Romney is - according to those at the Washington Post who want desperately for him to be defeated - dealt a crushing blow. Again.

"Uh-oh, Romney's lost the election again."
The Washington Post wasn't to be trusted then. It's not to be trusted now.
