I guess I’ve been remiss in my following of media comings and goings; I hadn’t seen that Michael Tomasky, a great liberal blogger for the Guardian, has moved over to be a columnist for Tina Brown and Newsweek/The Daily Beast. It’s truly a great get for Brown. I can’t say whether it’s a good or bad move for Tomasky, given the up-in-the-airness of the NewsBeast experiment. But I salute his willingness to take a chance. He’s always worth reading, and I’m certainly going to be following him in Tina-land. Where I hope he’s just an amazing success, because — leave the ideology out of this — his is a first-rate mind. It’s just so damn heartening to see that kind of thoughtfulness rewarded.
Tina and Tomasky
