Dave Weigel joins Slate

The libertarian journalist fired by the Washington Post for intemperate off-the-record e-mails lands on his feet

Published July 27, 2010 9:15PM (EDT)

After getting fired from the Washington Post following a coordinated smear campaign by the trashier elements of the right-wing media, libertarian journalist David Weigel has been hired by ... the Washington Post Company's Slate. Weigel will launch a politics blog. (Mickey Kaus, meanwhile, is still blogging at the website of his failed Senate campaign website. Which is still soliciting donations.)
