Office Politics, About Offices

A touchy subject has been percolating at WaPo as of late.

As we’ve reported, Ned Martel recently stepped down as Editor of the Style section after a few years of numerous complaints and an exodus of reporters who didn’t care for his condescending management style. Sure, some people like Howard Kurtz liked his style, but then again Kurtz liked it so much that he left for The Daily Beast. Martel now writes for the 2012 campaign.

The switch in title required an office move. So they’ve moved Martel into Columnist Steve Pearlstein‘s old office. Pearlstein, in turn, moved into the late David Broder‘s office, which is at least fitting in the sense of one Pulitzer Prize winner replacing another.

Can you imagine the outrage if Martel had moved into Broder’s office? Some Posties wonder why Martel even gets an office, seeing as not every campaign trail writer does.
