    Why The Washington Post Is Pulling Out of Regional Emmys

     

    Its for technicality reasons.

    “We were informed by the National Capital Chesapeake Bay Chapter of The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences they are disqualifying 12 of our regional Emmy entries,” the memo reads.

    Among the dozen Emmys that the Post will no longer be eligible to win is one for ‘Overall Excellence’ which the Washington Post took home last year.

    According to the memo, the reason for the disqualification is The Washington Post’s “unfair advantage” due to the reach of its national audience.

    “I’m sure our collecting numerous awards in recent years has been an embarrassment to the smaller local stations who couldn’t compete,” the memo reads.

    Rather than allowing the Academy to disqualify them, it further explains that the Washington Post would be withdrawing ALL entries from the judging process, even those not disqualified.
