REAL brawl breaks out in Washington Post newsroom! (Yes!)

Holy cow!!! -- more proof that print journalists are just a surly bunch of self-important misfits ready for a fight anytime, anywhere!

Pulitzer-prize winning editor and writer Henry Allen punched 'Style' writer Manuel Roig-Franzia in the face after a newsroom argument last Friday after Roig-Franzia said "Henry, don't be such a cocksu**er," according to FishbowlDC.

The "story" has also been covered by City Paper, Politico and The Washingtonian ... here's Politico's version ...


  1. Its about time the tough old news guys tune in those style hacks. If the story sucks it sucks, Newsroom is no place for modern PC warm and fuzzy types. Kudos to Allen for throwing down.
