WaPo's Wemple Goes Crazy on Politico's Harris

Washington Examiner Pushes New Columnist

Contrary to what this photo suggests, the Washington Examiner's Paul Bedard is not in prison, so don't try to "free" him.

After all, that's a big-ass promo for Bedard. And when the Examiner's website got a... read more>>

Politico to Hire Down?

Politico typically tries to hire up. They snag reporters from the aggressive media mindset of Manhattan. They steal people who haven't been places long -- such as the recent hire of Lois Romano from The Daily Beast. She'd been there under a year and at WaPo for nearly three decades. But now they're setting their sights lower and perhaps just nearby at TBD. Ryan Kearney, who has written for a site that prides... read more>>

Some Like It Hot

Anthony Pappas explains his reasoning in a story in AdAge. He says when they were approached by AMC's... read more>>
