Haberman to the Post

Ben isn’t officially back until tomorrow, but emails:

“The news on the political-reporting front is that Maggie Haberman is jumping from the News to the roving political reporting position at the Post, recently ditched by Stefan ‘President’ Friedman. The Post political slot, which Maggie held once before, is probably the most powerful job in city political reporting, because of the paper’s willingness (like it or not) to throw its weight around, and Maggie may be the best-sourced political reporter in town. She certainly taught me most of what little I know about how to do this. In any case, good news for the Post, less good news for the rest of us.”
