Following up yesterday's post about Steven Pearlstein's feeling that smaller papers should cease to exist. It is nice to see that his boss at least grasps the concept that local should be the emphasis of the newspaper.
Katherine Weymouth, CEO and Publisher of the Washington Post sent a memo to the entire Post staff today.
The interesting part to me was her feeling that, "More than ever, The Washington Post must be the indispensable guide to Washington."
Referring to yesterday's gaff by Pearlstein, a colleague made the observation that maybe the Post should get out of the business so that the New York Times can increase their circulation, seeing that The Washington Post can't cover national and international news as well as The Times.
