Hi Beth,

Sorry for even asking this, but there's an internet rumor (spreading on Twitter and Reddit) that you offered a woman $1000 in exchange for going on the record making an accusation against Roy Moore.

Can you just quickly confirm or deny this rumor?

Thanks,
Rich Jones

Hi Rich,

 

The accusation against The Post is categorically false. We have an explicit policy that prohibits paying sources.

 

Best,

Molly
