Is WaPo‘s Executive Editor Steamed Marcus Brauchli on his way out, or does Washingtonian just have a lot of questions?
Makes us want to go on a question rampage. Namely, is this mere rumor or imminent? A story published this week by Washingtonian media writer Harry Jaffe, who has written at least a couple anti-WaPo management stories in his day, seems to think it’s just a matter of time before Brauchli gets blanched. Management formally denies that Brauchli is leaving anytime soon, but anonymous newsroom sources tell him the rumors are heating up and have been since the beginning of the year.
The headline: “Is Marcus Brauchli Soon to Be Out at the Washington Post?”
All in all, the short piece contains eight questions including the headline and takes stabs at who might replace Brauchli should he leave.
Might Washingtonian have more details on this soon? Will Brauchli read Jaffe’s story and start packing up his things or will he start throwing darts at his nifty Harry Jaffe office dartboard that he got in the last office Secret Santa gift exchange? Who knows?
We reached out to WaPo PR for comment. They promised to get check on Washingtonian‘s report and get back to us.
