Ana Marie Cox To Be Time’s Washington Editor
This is more than a little distressing (WSJ, $):
Time Inc. hired former Wonkette blogger Ana Marie Cox to be Washington editor of Time.com. In her new role, Ms. Cox will head the Web site’s political coverage and produce stories for the print and online editions of the magazine. Ms. Cox joined Time magazine as a contributing writer in March. Previously, she was founding editor of the blog Wonkette, where she gained fame for her irreverent posts on political life and scandal in Washington, D.C. Earlier this year, Ms. Cox published a novel, “Dog Days,” a satire of life in Washington. She currently blogs at anamariecox.com.
How one goes from blogging about John Kerry’s member to being Time Magazine’s Washington editor is unknown to me, but best of luck to her.
