Ex-WaPo Blogger Lands at Slate

Yahoo! News’s Michael Calderone reports late this afternoon that ex-WaPo blogger Dave Weigel, despite strong rumors that he’d flock to HuffPost, has secured a job at Slate, which is owned by the Washington Post Company. Weigel resigned from WaPo after e-mails he wrote skewering conservatives surfaced from the liberal listerv Journolist. He will continue to contribute to MSNBC.
