Washington Post staffers are meeting with the publisher today in what’s being called an “expanded staff meeting.”
The Washington City Paper is reporting in one of their blogs that it’s rumored the main item on the agenda is a round of early retirement offers. If so, this would be buyout round 3 at the Post.
The first, in 2003, cut 54 staffers; the second, in 2006, reduced 70. Word is this time around the newsroom will let go another 60.
