In another signal that John Avlon is trying to soften the image that The Daily Beast is another liberal media outlet, they’ve hired Betsy Woodruff from Slate.
Woodruff has certainly been on the move.
In October, Woodruff left the Washington Examiner for Slate. She had been there for nine months.
Now, less than six months after joining Slate, she’s off to the Beast.
Before the Examiner, she worked for National Review for two years.
Cast your bets now: Can the Beast get her to stay for awhile?
Perhaps Olivia Nuzzi will have an influence. Or Will Rahn, the Beast‘s newly promoted Washington Bureau Chief.
