POSTWATCH HAS THE LATEST on the Washington Post / Josh Marshall standoff.

UPDATE: Bill Quick has all the emails, which were apparently (and rather discourteously) sent by the Post to anyone who emailed in support of Marshall. Quick’s take on it is still the best: “Josh is right. Can’t you guys find something else to call that file?”

The Post’s position is that they’re not going to do anything a court doesn’t order them to do. Uh, okay, but they should realize this isn’t making anybody think better of them. And I note that in the comments Will Vehrs suggests that this is a crime that carries its own punishment: Terry Neal’s column will now always be compared with Marshall’s superior work, making Neal look bad.

UPDATE: And the Post was still dodging public questions earlier this week.
