In a story published Thursday, the New York Times reports Executive Editor Martin Baron and foreign editor Douglas Jehl have written a note saying the Washington Post will add new bureaus in Australia and Colombia and will add staff, including eight reporters and editors to its technology team.
The only weird thing about this note? Nobody in the Post newsroom has seen it. Washingtonian‘s usual sources, and some of its unusual ones, haven’t received any such memo. As it turns out, that’s by design: The Post gave Times reporter Edmund Lee an “early look” at the memo, says spokesperson Molly Gannon.
If you work at the Washington Post, you can read about future developments in your newsroom right now in the New York Times, or you can wait till next week, when Gannon says the company will share this memo with you.
