Washington Post Cuts Business Section
The Washington Post is no longer including a business section in their paper for six days out of the week, CNN reported Friday.
The decision is aimed at saving money on newsprint during a time when newspaper profits are falling sharply. In a memo, Executive Editor Marcus Brauchli said that the cut would enable the Post to keep providing readers with the content they want.
“We remain absolutely committed to the strongest, in-depth and authoritative coverage of business locally,” the memo said.
"The A section gets more readers than the Business section, so we'll have more readers for our business coverage. We aren't changing the size of the staff," Brauchli told Reuters.
The Post will no longer run listings of daily stock movements and will limit coverage to a half page with only major stocks represented.
