Hohmann – the “Future” of Journalism: At Politico, not WaPo

WaPo‘s national security reporter Walter Pincus may have given then-WaPo intern James Hohmann a high form of praise, calling him the “future” of journalism. But this was before the young scribe flew the coop and switched over to Politico. (In the above photographs we imagine what the experience must have been like for him…)

Politico‘s Mike Allen harshes on WaPo in this morning’s Playbook.

“OUCH: In “Morning Miracle,” Dave Kindred’s forthcoming book about trying times at The Washington Post, the legendary Walter Pincus says of then-Post-intern James Hohmann: “He’s the future.” Today, Hohmann celebrates six months with POLITICO.”

Instead of remaining at WaPo, where he could have landed a paying job post internship, Hohmann moved to Politico.
