Greg Sargent is moving over to write a Washington Post blog. Michael Goldfarb writes
Greg Sargent, the prolific TPM reporter, announced today that he's heading to the Washington Post to run a new blog. Sargent is an unrepentant Democratic partisan, which means he should fit in well with the staff at the Post, but also a top notch reporter. During the campaign, Sargent would ping the McCain press shop with questions all day long. Because TPM is so overtly partisan, he rarely got the answers he was looking for, but for his persistence, if nothing else, Sargent earned a grudging respect from the McCain staff.
Sargent, of course, was the American Prospect writer whom I forced a retraction out of on the Jack Abramoff story
(with expert assistance from Donald Luskin). That story also ended up causing a retraction by Paul Krugman.
