MediaBistro's Woman Problem, Cont'd
Alex Massie, the Washington correspondent for The Scotsman, writes:
Like you, I'm disappointed Anne Applebaum is leaving the WaPo. Media Bistro's line, "We hear that it is largely due to her husband having taken a new job in a different city" is unintentionally amusing.
Um, yes, Radek Sikorski does indeed have a new job in a different city. He's currently serving as the Polish Defence Minister. Given that until recently he was prominent at AEI. I'd have thought a DC media blog would have known this.
I suppose with David Ignatius still in Paris the Post may feel it can't have two Europe-based op-ed columnists. Sad however, to see her go.
