The Atlantic Gets A Molly

The Atlantic has poached Politico’s Molly Ball, Atlantic Digital director Bob Cohn announced today. Ms. Ball will cover national politics for TheAtlantic.com and be edited by Garance Franke-Ruta.

“Molly’s experience as a fast-moving political reporter will be a big benefit to our 2012 coverage,” Mr. Cohn said in a press release. “The voice and clarity she brings to her writing, combined with her instinct for cut-through-the-clutter analysis, make her a great fit at The Atlantic.”

Her twitter handle is “mollyesque” but she doesn’t seem very Mollyish.
