But the in-house editorials have become increasingly more rational, and we often find ourselves in agreement with those positions, particularly when the Post endorsed U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner over former Sen. Mark Udall.
So it was with some dismay we learned that the Post is cutting back on the in-house editorials, as well as staff.
From the Columbia Journalism Review:
One of the Post’s editorial writers, Jeremy Meyer, left a few weeks ago for a job in government PR. There are no plans to replace him in the near future, according to Vincent Carroll, the editorial page editor.
That leaves Carroll—who became the page editor in 2013 when his predecessor, Curtis Hubbard, left to join a public affairs firm—as essentially the lone editorial writer left at the Post. And that means there will be days when publishing a locally written editorial won’t be possible.
There is no shortage of nutcases who will jump at the chance to get their far-left positions on the Post’s editorial page and fill the hole. So we’ve got that going for us. But, we hate to see any newspaper cutbacks, and will especially miss the Monday morning quarterbacking from the dwindling number of ink-stained wretches churning out those opinions.
