Buyouts are being offered to newsroom employees. Ombudsman Patrick Pexton tweeted that buyouts will be limited to 48.

A memo from Executive Editor Marcus Brauchli blamed the economy, and said the buyouts “won’t affect the quality, ambition or authority of our journalism.”

“The Post’s newsroom remains formidable, and we will continue making tactical hires so that even as we get smaller, we get stronger.”
