Dave McKenna Returns To WaPo Sports After Being Run Out By Kornheiser

This Sunday's Washington Post Magazine cover story was written by Dave McKenna, and it is about sports. The fact that McKenna wrote a story about sports isn't momentous, he does that all the time, but as Poynter's Andrew Beaujon reminds us, this is the first time he's been allowed to write about sports for the … » 3/07/14 6:07pm 3/07/14 6:07pm

Dave McKenna Leaves Washington City Paper, But Not Without Kicking Dan…

Snyder, the Redskins' owner, had filed a dumbass libel lawsuit against McKenna earlier this year over a column Snyder acknowledged he hadn't even read. The suit was withdrawn after 218 days, every day of which we proudly linked to what McKenna had initially written.

How Dan Snyder Is The Elvis Of NFL Owners

Yes, you may have read recently that Washington Redskins owner dismissed his dumbass libel lawsuit against the Washington City Paper after admitting that he had never read the story in question. Craggs suggested this was because Dan Snyder was a "churlish little shitbag vulgarian." But perhaps he is just like Elvis in… » 9/21/11 3:00pm 9/21/11 3:00pm

As you may have heard, Dan Snyder's dumbass libel suit against the Washington City Paper is no more. Which means we will no longer be posting a daily link to the story that so enraged Snyder (and which he failed to read).

First, Dan Snyder sold Redskins fans the old peanuts he got from a bankrupt airline, as Dave McKenna mentions in "The Cranky Redskins Fan's Guide to Dan Snyder." (You have just experienced "We Are All Dave McKenna CCX.") Now Snyder is charging fans at FedExField $6 for Donovan McNabb soda cups. Oh, wait. I'm not… » 9/02/11 12:25pm 9/02/11 12:25pm

It was always going to come to this. After being abused by Dan Snyder for over a decade, DC is finally fighting back. The city's Attorney General this week intervened in Snyder's increasingly desperate case against the Washington City Paper, arguing, more or less, that the wee Redskins owner is a titanic ass for… » 9/01/11 2:20pm 9/01/11 2:20pm

Dan Snyder's lawyers yesterday filed a brief in D.C. Superior Court as part of Snyder's dumbass legal jihad against the Washington City Paper.
