Did WaPo’s Shales Quit on Facebook?

After a cryptic post by Tom Shales, referencing “December 31st” and being “over-and-outta here,” appeared on Washington Post chairman Don Graham‘s Facebook wall yesterday, TBD.com suggested that WaPo‘s longtime TV critic may be quitting the Post.   Sources tell FishbowlDC that there have been rumblings that he is unhappy with Hank Stuever‘s recent promotion to WaPo‘s main critic – a transition that redefined Shales as a columnist. According to sources inside the newsroom “there is still a struggle over who reviews what.”

When reached for comment, a WaPo spokesperson told FishbowlDC, “Tom has been on contract since he took the buyout and he is still on contract.”
