The Washington Post plans to put plywood on the windows of its Los Angeles, Chicago and New York bureaus at the end of the year, leaving the paper with one domestic office in D.C. In a clear cost-cutting move, the paper will re-assign six reporters to Washington and lay off three news assistants. "The fact is we can effectively cover the rest of the country from Washington," Executive Editor Marcus Brauchli said. [Washington Post]
