Froomkin Shares Dets About His New HuffPost Gig

We told you yesterday that Dan Froomkin was joining HuffPost as the Washington bureau chief, regular columnist and blogger.

Today Froomkin shares some dets about his new gig on Nieman Watchdog blog.

This is a wonderful opportunity for me. It’s a marvelous platform – Arianna Huffington has built a large and thriving community of readers by adhering to the best principles of old and new media. And my new job gives me a chance to branch out a bit, while holding firm to my commitment to accountability journalism. Now I’ll have a chance to work as part of a great team, and do a bit more of my own reporting as well as commentary and media criticism.

Froomkin also called the response from his WaPo departure “extraordinary,” proving to him “how much readers hunger for a new – or perhaps I should say old – method of political reporting.” Read on here.
