Reuters has asked its editorial staff to cut back on expenses, reports The Baron, a website that tracks the news company.
The Baron writes, “International assignments and permanent transfers will be postponed for a few months and there will be no new hiring until later in the year.

“Last year, Reuters newsroom grew by more than 200 staff, the biggest expansion for well over a decade.
