Separate But Equal: WaPo Bylines

Looks like the folks won’t get the “Special to the Washington Post” byline accorded to freelancers anymore; they’ll get “Washington Post Staff Writer.”

FishbowlDC has the memo:


Effective immediately, bylines of all full-time editorial staffers of should simply reflect who they are: Washington Post Staff Writer(s). This will apply to all bylines we use online and in print, both when we reverse publish original web content in the paper and when online staffers contribute directly to the newspaper.

Please make the necessary changes.

Thank you,

Marcus, Liz and Raju
