Daily Caller Hires Bardella as Comm. Director

When one door closes another opens.

Kurt Bardella has been hired to be the communications director for The Daily Caller. This comes on the heels of the former House Republican aide getting fired by House Oversight Government Reform Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) last month after Politico implored him to investigate the aide for sneaking emails, allegedly from Politico reporters, to NYT scribe Mark Leibovich.

In a statement, Editor-in-Chief Tucker Carlson said: “Kurt’s talent, energy and experience will be an instrumental part of the Daily Caller’s evolution from start-up to news staple. As we turn our focus towards covering the 2012 election cycle, Kurt is the first of many new hires we expect to announce in the near future.”

Bardella moves fast. In that same release, he boasts about The Daily Caller, saying, “In a short amount of time, the Daily Caller has already surpassed the online presence of conservative staples such as the Weekly Standard and National Review. With the 2012 election cycle already taking shape, there are tremendous opportunities for the Daily Caller to continue to expand their brand and I look forward to working with them to do that.”

We trust those op-ed pieces that Bardella has been penning for Politico will finally cease.

Congratulations to Bardella.
