(Newser) – The latest newspaper to cut back on business coverage and stock listings is the Washington Post, Reuters reports. The paper will stop publishing a standalone daily business section and beef up its Sunday section, according to an internal memo. The executive editor spun the cuts as a move to integrate business and general news coverage, saying it “reflects the centrality of economic news, as well as the increasing overlap of political and economic events, in today’s world.”
