Washington Post to close U.S. bureaus


WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- The Washington Post said Tuesday it's closing its domestic bureaus in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago by year's end.

The move is described as cost-cutting.

The Post plans to focus its resources on the nation's capital.

In a staff memo Tuesday, Executive Editor Marcus Brauchli told workers that the paper needed to concentrate its "journalistic firepower" on its central mission of covering Washington, D.C.
In the last decade, the paper has closed bureaus in Miami, Denver and Austin, Texas.

The Post's parent company also owns Newsweek magazine, Kaplan education services and television properties.
