The Washington Post’s Dana Milbank has recently been in negotiations with Time magazine about writing a column similar to his popular “Washington Sketch” pieces.
Milbank confirmed to Politico that he had job discussions with the newsweekly but decided to remain at the Post. He declined to comment further.
A few thoughts: Why the hell would Milbank leave the Post?
Okay, sure. But would any reporter trade Milbank’s precious and rare prominence for an extra $20/30/50,000+ more? Perhaps. I doubt it. I’m sure the Post is paying him plenty enough.
