An ombudsman, for those of you who don't know, is the person who is supposed to be the public's advocate for their newspaper, the spokesperson/inspector general who is charged with explaining coverage issues, as well as keeping the paper honest.
Most big newspapers used to have them; now they exist at places like the Washington Post and a few others. They have devolved into babysitters for conservatives who constantly complain that the cynical assholes they voted for don't get enough good press and that the libruls run the media.
As I've said many times before, anyone who seriously thinks the media is liberal has never worked in it.
