Good News, Everyone!

Now, with a reason to smile!Dropped by the Washington Post last month, political watchman Dan Froomkin has landed on his feet with a new gig at the Huffington Post, where he’ll be running the Washington bureau and blogging semi-constantly.

This is awesome news. As Glenn Greenwald writes over at Salon, Froomkin has been doing an outstanding job of covering the coverage of modern American politics — and calling out journalists as well as politicians when lines are crossed, or facts are buffed.

He’s an excellent columnist, and any news organ would be privileged to have him on its staff … except the Washington Post, I guess. Well, it’s their loss. Literally.
