You probably already knew that, but this is the clincher:
The liberal blogger Dave Weigel, who was hired by The Post to cover the conservative movement, has resigned, after advising Matt Drudge on a semi-public forum for leftish commentators to set himself on fire. Put aside the controversy over whether the Post, which was advised by its star blogger, Ezra Klein (who once advised parties unknown, via his Twitter account, to “fuck tim russert. fuck him with a spiky acid-tipped dick”) that Weigel would do an excellent and balanced job of reporting on conservatives, even understood that it was hiring a liberal, and not a conservative (Ben Smith has more on this aspect of the controversy), the issue in the newsroom today is, How did the Post come to this?
I realize this kind of language is why people don’t take blogs seriously, but I’ll say it anyway: if the other Atlantic bloggers have two balls to rub together between the lot of them, they’ll call him on this. If I were worked with this dickhead, I’d kick his Iraq-war-loving ass all the way back to the Green Zone.
Update. I emailed Marc Ambinder and Andrew Sullivan to see if they were going to comment on this. Ambinder replies that he will not.
Update. All right, I see John already wrote about this. Sorry, but goddamn this makes me angry.
