Here is the news item:

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The Washington Post will stop publishing a business section six days out of the week and move business news to the front section of the paper at a time when finance stories dominate world headlines.

The decision, which the Post's editors explained in a memo obtained by Reuters, means that the paper will save money on newsprint when newspaper advertising revenue is plunging.

The cost-cutting would allow the paper to keep providing readers with what they say they want, according to the memo signed by Executive Editor Marcus Brauchli and other editors.

Here is what WilliamBanzai7 thinks: The Washington Post is the newspaper of choice in our nation's capital. I know that politicians don't read newspapers, would think that with all the game changing financial and business issues flying around and the economy being the basket case that it is, the business section would get more attention in our National seat of government. Apparently, not.
