A Postie writes in to say that the newsroom is perplexed by management’s inability to keep Michael Powell on staff.
He wanted to stay in New York. The eds wouldn’t make any promises beyond the presidential campaign. So he found himself a way to stay in NYC for good and we’re down another great talent. We’re bleeding great journalists here and the staff is beginning to look anemic.
Is the Style’s section’s political beat the journalistic equivalent of the Spinal Tap drummer’s seat? Mark Leibovich leaves, then David von Drehle and Powell bolt before they’ve even gotten the chair warm. Who’s next to go?
