Weymouth Opens Up

Washington Post Publisher Katharine Weymouth participated in an Aspen Institute roundtable discussion today along with Ben Bradlee, Sally Quinn, Harry Jaffe, Doyle McManus, John Walcott, Bernard Shaw, Jonathan Rauch, Rem Rieder, Janet Terry, Beverly Kirk and Brooke Townsend.

Weymouth shared her thoughts on…

…The Huffington Post: “They are a good kick in the pants for us. We have to make our news more compelling and engaging for the reader.”

…competing in a fast-paced Internet environment: “We’re not going to prostitute ourselves — no Britney Spears stories. … But, in the context of our brand, we need to ask ourselves, what can we be doing better?”

…the state of Washington Post Radio: “The short answer is: It’s over. … It ended about six months ago. I guess you missed it a lot!”

…the Washington Post’s national and even international appeal: “The Washington Post still sees its mission as based in local reporting. … We’re a local paper that happens to sit in the nation’s capital.”

…the election of Barack Obama: “Washington itself will be a big story over the next four years.”
