Emily Miller , who has written “Emily’s Post”, a gossip column, for Politics Daily for the past year, has signed a freelance contract to write opinion pieces for TWT, such as this one that ran last week. Her Politics Daily contract is up soon and she is not staying.
Miller remarked: “I really enjoy writing opinion pieces, it’s very natural for me after so many years in politics.”
Brett Decker, editorial page editor of TWT, said: “We’re excited to have Emily Miller join the Washington Times Opinion team to help expand our award-winning coverage of Washington politics. Our readers will have their eyes opened by her insider scoop exposing what’s really happening in the corridors of power.”
Politics Daily Senior Washington Correspondent Carl Cannon wrote to FishbowlDC: “Emily’s contract was up for renewal after a year, and she decided that Politics Daily wasn’t a perfect fit for her, so she’s moving on to other endeavors. Emily brought millions of readers to our pages and worked hard for us, and Melinda and I are grateful for her contribution to our first year as a news site — and we wish her all the best.”
Update: The National Enquirer opening a D.C. bureau with Miller at its helm is still on the table. Miller has been pushing for the Enquirer to receive the award. Pulitzer’s will be announced Monday.
Congratulations to Miller.
