Washington Post Express Shuts Down, Laying Off 20 "Journalists"

The free commuter paper was put out of business due to a lack of public interest in something free.

Even at zero dollars and zero cents, it did not have enough customers.

The whiny babies blamed the public's complete lack of interest in anything they did on smart phones.

"Add Express to the list of print publications done in by mobile technology," the editors wrote. "Sadly, this is our final edition."


The Post announced the shuttering of its Express publication just a day earlier, ending the 16-year run of the publication handed out to riders on D.C.'s Metro rail system.

About 20 journalists have been laid off as a result of the publication's closure. The Washington Post Guild, which did not represent the Express's writers, slammed the decision and in particular the short notice given to employees, some of whom found out from media reports.

"This announcement came the day before operations ceased, with no advance warning," the union said Wednesday.

"These employees, many of them young women, performed the same jobs as other staff in our newsroom for substantially lesser pay," it continued.

"Journalists" call this bitchy, whiny cover "perfect."
