Pruitt: McClatchy has not closed its DC bureau

Romenesko Memos
Nat Hentoff said on NPR’s “Weekend Edition Saturday” that he was stunned to hear that McClatchy had closed its Washington bureau. “Of course, this comment is completely untrue,” McClatchy CEO Gary Pruitt writes in a staff memo. “We are all likely to see and hear more rumors, misinformation, misstatements, etc. about McClatchy. We will do our best to correct what we can. We would also like to ask your help in checking with us when these situations arise before becoming concerned or assuming this kind of information is accurate.”
