More Post Meeting Notes

Even more big news from the Post’s afternoon meeting: washingtonpost.com is lauching a whole new package for political news and … (wait for it) … it will have its own name.

Gee, where have we heard that sort of thing before?

Well, to be fair, Len Downie did point out that this was in the works since even before VandeHarris broke, but at the very least, many Posties left with the impression that they’re rushing it out in response to The Politico.

And if you don’t believe Downie’s promise of no layoffs, well, believe it: If they ever had layoffs, union rules would require last-hired/first-fired
— and that would be completely intolerable for management.
