Washington Post names outsider as top editor

New publisher of the Washington Post, Katharine Weymouth, is busily putting her stamp on one of the world's great newspapers. Her latest move is to name Marcus W. Brauchli, formerly of the Wall Street Journal, executive editor.

Brauchli, 47, replaces Leonard Downie, 66. I told you that editors are getting younger.

Weymouth herself is just 42.
