Article here. Its defense is that it did run a story on February 1, and a more extensive one on July 26. I think it valid, though, to ask why the six month silence in between, while CBS and others were breaking the story (starting in March).

On July 7, it was public knowledge that Acting Director Melson had met secretly with committee investigators. Nothing in the Post.
