Can confirm that registered Qatari foreign agents held in person meetings last year w/ both Marty Baron (exec editor of WaPo) and Dean Bacquet (exec editor of NYT). If Democracy indeed "Dies in Darkness," shouldn't we have right to know what was discussed in those meetings?
Details: The Qatar lobbyists met with Baquet in New York City on 7/26/18 for a "General discussion on Qatar" & a lawsuit involving fmr RNC official Elliot Broidy, who has been a target of Qatar for some time. The next day, the lobbyists met in person w/ WaPo's Marty Baron in D.C.
Unclear why top bosses 2 biggest US publications sat in on meetings w/ Qatar lobbyists. 2 days prior, WaPo got a "scoop" from the lobbyists, which was described as an op-ed, but ended up being written by a WaPo reporter(?). Reads like pro-Doha propaganda:
