Anyone old enough to remember when queries of this sort [unless they came from the publisher] were answered with a polite[*] "Thank you," followed by a click as the phone was hung up?

Not long after the Erik Wemple Blog lamented that mainstream media organizations haven’t responded to our inquiries about coverage of the Kermit Gosnell trial, we can report having received one response — from within the building here at 15th and L streets NW.

Martin Baron, executive editor of the Post, tells the Erik Wemple Blog:

We believe the story is deserving of coverage by our own staff, and we intend to send a reporter for the resumption of the trial next week. In retrospect, we should have sent a reporter sooner.

That’s something. Still waiting on the three big broadcast networks and the New York Times.
[Erik Wemple in the Washington Post]

Nothing like jumping into the middle of a trial. Much tougher than joining a baseball game in the sixth inning.
