Washington Post denies apologising for PM article

New Delhi: The Washington Post Wednesday denied it has offered an apology for an article which described Prime Minister Manmohan Singh as "a dithering, ineffectual bureaucrat presiding over a deeply corrupt government".

"I am not apologizing," Washington Post journalist Simon Denyer said, defending the article on the CNN-IBN channel.

Dyner said that he spoke to a cross-section of people before writing the article.

"I requested interview with T.K.A. Nair, Pulok Chaterjee (officials of the prime minister's office) and the prime minister himself. But the requests were denied and simply ignored. And it was not because the PMO did not offer interviews I wrote a one- sided article. I spoke to people in the government and spoke to people in the Congress. I spoke to a wide range of people," he said.
