Richard Berke was offered Washington Post managing editor job

Richard Berke

A Washington Post staffer tells me that the “newsroom is abuzz” over a “wild rumor” that New York Times assistant managing editor Richard Berke was offered the managing editor position at the Post and that he turned it down. I’ve confirmed that’s true. One of the Post’s ME slots has been vacant since Raju Narisetti jumped to the Wall Street Journal.
