Juliet Eilperin again fails to disclose conflict-of-interest

Washington Post environmental reporter writer Juliet Eilperin again cites the Center for American Progress and fails to disclose that her husband is a senior fellow there.

“‘I think he has a lot of tools, and they’re evaluating how to use them,’ said Carol Browner, who served as assistant to the president on energy and climate change during Obama’s first two years and is now a distinguished senior fellow at the Center for American Progress.”

Remember that WashPost ombudsman Patrick Pexton recently wrote,

Journalists should always disclose a possible conflict of interest to their readers.

Possibly Eilperin is not a “journalist”?
