Walter Pincus leaves The Washington Post concerned for journalism's future
Walter Pincus is a Pulitzer-prize winning journalist and columnist for The Washington Post. Now, after four decades writing on national security and defence issues, Mr. Pincus is leaving the paper.
But not without a final word... and a warning.
Last week, he penned a column called, "A farewell to The Washington Post". In it, he voiced his concerns about contemporary journalism, and the consequences of its erosion.
Walter Pincus joined Connie Walker from Washington DC.
"This is hardly a goodbye. It is just till we meet again."- Walter Pincus in his article, "A farewell to The Washington Post"
Walter Pincus plans to continue writing. Starting Feb. 2nd, he will write weekly column for a relatively new national security website, The Cipher Brief. As well, he is currently writing a book about the U.S. nuclear weapons program.
