WP managing editor defends Klein, Pearlstein

A Washington Post chatter asks Raju Narisetti (left) “when are you finally going to be honest with your readers and move Steve Pearlstein and Ezra Klein out of the business section and into the opinion section where they belong?” The managing editor’s response: “We are being honest in labeling them, very clearly, as columnists. …I hired Ezra and work closely with Steve and find them to be honest, smart, reporting-driven writers who have interesting, fact-based opinions.”
