A Post blogger smacks at Politico's Matt Wuerker

Politico's tone-deaf, unhelpful cartoon about conservatives being rescued from Harvey by the government

The (FAILING!)* Washington Examiner piled on our friend Matt Wuerker:

Politico cartoonist revels in Hurricane Harvey

by Becket Adams |

But then, Michael Cavna, also of the Post, responded:

How soon is too soon to politicize Hurricane Harvey? Charlie Hebdo and Politico may test your tastes.

*from Wikipedia:

From 2005 to mid-2013, the Examiner published a daily tabloid-sized newspaper, distributed free throughout the Washington, D.C. metro area, largely focused on local news and political commentary. The local newspaper ceased publication on June 14, 2013,** and its content began to focus exclusively on national politics, switching its print edition from a daily newspaper to a weekly magazine format.

**leaving the field to the Washington Post's Express tabloid.
