Probably because it's so unsuccessful, the Washington Post has kept throwing money at this horrific "Mouthpiece Theater" gossip show they do with Dana Milbank and Chris Cillizza while having to massively cut costs to return to profitability. Their investment in Milbank's comedy stylings yielded this gem today.
If I were on the board of directors of the Kaplan test prep company, and discovered that the people running a money-losing Kaplan subsidiary (better known as the Washington Post) had greenlighted a feature called "Mouthpiece Theater," I would demand that either they be fired, or that the Post itself be liquidated.
In today's episode, Dana Milbank suggests Hillary Clinton should drink "Mad Bitch" beer.
The episode starts with an ad for BP. So, is it time to boycott them and tell them the reason?
I've seen open mike nights with more comedy talent than Mouthpiece Theater.
...And WaPo takes down the clip. You can see it here.
