Weymouth At Aspen Ideas Festival: “Big Newsrooms That Put Out Quality Journalism Are Very Expensive To Maintain”

Before a certain news story broke, WaPo publisher Katharine Weymouth was in Aspen for the 2009 Ideas Festival hosted by the Aspen Institute and The Atlantic.

In the clip above Weymouth, speaking on the “What’s Next for the News Business” panel, said papers had gotten “fat in the happy years that I tragically missed.” She pointed out that in its glory days, when it broke the Watergate scandal, the Post’s newsroom was half the size it is today.
