Washington Post Struggles to Keep Painting Greens as Struggling

If you go to right now, you'll see this:
A year ago, environmental groups seemed at the peak of their influence. Now they are struggling.
Except that exactly one year ago, the Washington Post didn't say environmental groups were at the peak of their influence. It literally said they were struggling using the exact same reporter, using those exact words:
It seems that environmentalists are struggling in a fight they have spent years setting up.
You have to wonder if the Washington Post's reporting on environmental groups is driven by reality, or if it just rewrites the "greens are struggling" article once a year & adds a new headline. You also have to wonder how much its reporting is being influenced by its increasingly-conservative editorial side.
