Tom Edsall Joining Huffington Post

It is not everyday that a blog like Tactical Philanthropy gets to break news. I even said earlier that I’m not attending the Council on Foundations conference to “report”. But here I am at the Morphing Media session and Arianna Huffington says that next week the Huffington Post will be announcing that they’ve hired Tom Edsall, formally of the Washington Post, to be their new Political Editor. This is probably of no interest to most of my readers, but I’m guessing there’s more than a few political blogs that will find this of interest.

When moderator Dot Ridings laughingly told her that since there were bloggers in the audience she already had announced the news, Arianna said “oh, that’s OK, let the blogs have it first”.
