WMATA Bus Driver Spared from Discipline

The Baltimore Sun's Mike Dresser reports that the WMATA bus driver accused of violating the agency's cell phone policy has escaped discipline. WTOP confirmed our story on the driver's innocence, and now, so has WMATA.

The incident gained attention when the Washington Post reported anonymous allegations made on an anonymous blog without vetting them. The Post really should apologize to this driver. Instead, the Post has now been scooped by the Sun on the finding of innocence and, as far as we can tell, no apology is forthcoming.
