There’s much talk that the Washington Post is considering killing its Book World section. Executive editor Marcus Brauchli says ,“We are absolutely committed to book reviews and coverage of literature, publishing and ideas in The Post. Our readership has a huge interest in these areas.“
But Scott McLemee notes that Brauchli’s statement does not include any commitment to continuing the section. In fact, it’s rather similar to what the Post executives said just before they shut down Washington Post Radio.
