Major Shakeup at WaPoThe Post feels the strain of declining subscriptions:
In a surprising memo to staffers today, Leonard Downie, Jr., executive editor, announced several general and specific shakeups "to maximize readership of the printed newspaper, build audience on the Web site and further reduce costs in the newsroom."Downie is doing his best to put lipstick on this pig, but it's obviously a major attempt to cut down on costs.
Newspapers are fast becoming obsolete; I hope The Post takes the smart route and uses this opportunity not to dumb down its content but make it a leaner, sharper source of news and analysis.
