Washington Post to close its remaining U.S. bureaus

The Washington Post announced today it will close six bureaus around the country.


The Washington Post, in a significant retrenchment, is closing its remaining domestic bureaus around the country.

The six correspondents who work in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago will be offered reassignments in Washington, while three news assistants will be let go.


The money-saving move, coming on the heels of four rounds of early-retirement buyouts and the closing or merging of several sections, is the clearest sign yet of the newspaper's shrinking horizons in an era of diminished resources.

A perfect example of how the left would rather go down in flames rather than tell the truth.

The easy approach would be to fire everyone, and then simply copy the AP news releases or DNC talking points.

No one will notice.

Holding your customers in contempt is not a good business strategy.

Holding your customers in contempt, and lying to them, is an even worse business strategy.

If they close all of these bureaus and lay off all of those reporters how are they going to cover important stories like ACORN and Climategate?

Oh. I see.

I just returned from a 2 week trip to the D.C. area and read (?) the Post each day. Has been several years since I had seen a copy and today's version is abysmal. Horrible layout, terrible writing and mostly just D.C. society news. Not the Post of the past, and closing their U.S. bureaus is not surprising. The Post circulation must also be abysmal.
