British Queen celebrates

British journalist Robert Winnett will not be joining the Washington Post as editor and will continue his role as deputy editor at the Daily Telegraph, according to a staff

memo from the U.S. newspaper seen by Reuters.

“It is with regret that I share with you that Robert Winnett has withdrawn from the position of Editor at The Washington Post,” stated the Post’s publisher, Will Lewis, in the memo.

Earlier this month, reports from the New York Times and the Post indicated that Winnett was allegedly involved with a private investigator who confessed to using unethical methods to obtain information.

This news emerges amid significant changes at the prominent U.S. newspaper, following the departure of Sally Buzbee, the first woman to lead the newsroom, as executive editor earlier this month.

According to the memo, Matt Murray, the former editor-in-chief of the Wall Street Journal, will take over leadership of the newsroom and will continue as executive editor until after the U.S. elections.
