Journos In Love At The Post

Harry Jaffe points out the following pairings:

  • “The latest pairing is Pulitzer Prize–winning special-projects reporter Barton Gellman and WMD specialist Dafna Linzer.”

  • “The reigning power couple today is Susan Glasser and Peter Baker. She’s assistant managing editor for national news; he covers the White House–which means she’s his boss.”

  • “Then there’s Marie Arana, editor of Book World, married to Jonathan Yardley, the Post’s top book columnist. Which means she’s his boss.”

Although the Post is okay with Posties dating each other (“‘We don’t have a policy about spouses working together,’ says Tom Wilkinson, the Post’s personnel chief, ‘but in practice we don’t want one spouse supervising the other.’”), Jaffe does make this point:

    The Post does have an antinepotism rule: It won’t hire anyone married to a Post staffer. Not a problem. Wall Street Journal reporter Dan Morse, then based in Atlanta, proposed to Post business reporter Dana Hedgpeth. Then he took a Post reporting job. Then he married Hedgpeth.

>UPDATE: A tipster writes in…

    Jaffe’s wrong re: Susan and Peter — he reports to Bill Hamilton, which gets him out of her chain of command.
