AP Cuts Staff in Jerusalem, West Bank

As part of organization-wide layoffs

Print Email

Among the layoffs this week at the Associated Press: One reporter in Jerusalem and another in the West Bank, we’re told. The news service is cutting dozens of positions in an effort to cut staffing costs by 10 percent worldwide. Rumor is that reporter Steve Weizman has been let go from the AP’s Jerusalem bureau (which remains relatively large) and that another staffer has been laid off in Nablus, one of a handful of reporters in the Palestinian territories. AP spokesman Paul Colford told Tablet Magazine he couldn’t confirm or deny whether the cuts had been made, but an email sent to Weizman’s AP address bounced back.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
