WaPo’s David Broder istaking a buyout from the paper…
Broder, reached by phone this afternoon, explained reasons for
taking the buyout this year, as opposed to the last time it was
offered, in 2006.
“It’s two things really,” Broder said. “First of all, the paper is
like every other paper–feeling the squeeze. And this does get me off
the newsroom budget. That is one reason. The other reason is that it’s
a generous buyout offer.”
He’ll still be a contract employee though.
