WaPo‘s Publisher Katharine Weymouth is holding one of her regular Town Hall meetings today with Washington Post employees. But this one could be rather rough as it will be the first Town Hall since news of her pay raise and big bonus broke. After she announced that profits are 66 percent down, Weymouth could face newsroom wrath with the union riled over the fact that Weymouth is getting a 16.4 percent pay hike. Media Matters unearthed the numbers in an SEC filing, reporting that Weymouth’s salary was $537,000 in 2010, but effective April, 11 it is now $625,000.
