More Flee from TWT: Carpenter to Sen. DeMint’s Office


TWT reporter Amanda Carpenter, who made frequent appearances on shows like CNN’s Reliable Sources is packing up and moving on from the troubled Times.

Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) announced today that Carpenter would join his office as a senior communications advisor and speechwriter. In a release this afternoon, Carpenter said:

“I’ve long admired Senator DeMint for the battles he’s waged to limit the size of government and decrease spending,” said Carpenter. “He is a relentless advocate for conservative principles. I’m thrilled to join his team and help promote those ideas.”

Carpenter joins former Times Managing Editor of Digital Jeff Birnbaum as TWTers to leap from editorial to communications. Birnbaum was named president of BGR Public Relations earlier this month.
