Politics Daily’s Melinda Henneberger is Laid Off

Politics Daily‘s Editor-in-Chief Melinda Henneberger has been laid off today. The news was expected as part of the AOL-HuffPost merger. No word yet on what will happen to the site, but we’re hearing that not everyone from the site will be leaving. We reached Henneberger by phone, but she said she was in a meeting and rushed off the phone without saying anything about the layoff.

Politics Daily‘s daily email with a comment from Melinda along with snapshots of the day’s stories was not dispatched this morning. No indication on her Facebook page, except a Politics Daily writer, Donna Trussell writes, “I [Love] Melinda,” with love being a heart emoticon.

UPDATE: We’re hearing that Walter Shapiro and Patricia Murphy have also been laid off.
