Broder finally listens to lambert


Well, today:

More than 100 Washington Post reporters, editors, photographers, artists and other journalists will take early retirement packages offered by the company as a way to cut costs, reducing the newsroom staff by at least 10 percent.

Great. I always thought we had too much news.

Political dean David Broder took the package...


... but will remain on contract; his column will continue to appear in The Post.

So Broder takes the package and we still have to read him?! What kind of a package is that?

NOTE WKJM must be very upset by the sad news; I hear he was spotted under Broder's desk the other day. I wouldn't know why.

NOTE Via Avedon.

Don't worry about Broder. He'll find something before the severance runs out.

I hear Obama's looking for a Press Secretary....
