Washington Post to Cut Even More Bureaus
In another retrenchment, after closing its domestic bureaus in 2009, the Washington Post is eliminating even more offices – almost all of the bureaus it has to cover local news. While conservatives may have little love for the work of the Post, it is yet another disturbing sign for one of the nation’s most prominent papers.
The Post will maintain just two offices for local affairs, in Richmond and Annapolis. Local editor Vernon Loeb has promised “never” to close those offices, but time will tell.
