About 100 staffers at the Washington Post are on the way out after accepting
buyout packages, including Bob Woodward. The legendary journalist, who passed
on Post buyouts the first two times
the company offered, has a complicated exit package,
according to the Washington City Paper.
It's also notable who's not leaving
the Post newsroom during this buyout
round: managing editor Len Downie. Yet former Post newsroom boss Ben Bradlee thinks
Downie will leave soon, and the New York
that Post management is interviewing
possible replacements. Radar critic
Charles Kaiser also believes
Downie will be out by Inauguration Day 2009.
