Washington Post to close three bureaux

The Washington Post will close its bureaux in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles at the end of 2009, Editor & Publisher reports.
Reporters in the bureaux are being offered new positions in Washington, according to a memo to staff from executive editor Marcus Brauchli that was obtained by Politico. “At a time of limited resources and increased competitive pressure, it's necessary to concentrate our journalistic firepower on our central mission of covering Washington and the news, trends and ideas that shape both the region and the country’s politics, policies and government,” Brauchli says in the memo.
