Kurtz On Grim

Howie Kurtz also writes up last week’s story re: Ryan Grim and the Politico’s disclosure.

Says Tom Riley, from the White House drug policy office:

    “The idea of someone who had been an activist on this now being a staff writer purporting to write about it objectively . . . is ludicrous,” Riley says.

    “It’d be like a lobbyist for Philip Morris going to write about smoking issues for The Post.”

Says Politico Executive Editor John Harris:

    …Grim, who was hired from Washington’s City Paper, has a “reliable record” as a reporter. “There are lot of people at publications who have gone from advocacy jobs in a previous career to non-advocacy roles,” Harris says. “The story was motivated by journalistic interest, not his particular views on the subject.”
