Senate Flacks Plan Party for NYT’s Weisman

On Wednesday Senate flacks — both Democrats and Republicans — will host a party for NYT‘s newest Washington reporter Jonathan Weisman. Weisman recently made the move to The Grey Lady from WSJ.

While a party of this nature is definitely uncommon, one of our sources put it like this: “Well, he’s been around awhile. It is the Times.” Another reacted this way to the idea of flacks throwing a welcome party for a reporter: “Yuck.”

The “informal/formal” party, as it was described, will be held at Johnny’s Halfshell at 6 p.m.

Like most people, Weisman’s reputation is muddled. From those we spoke with, this is what we heard: He’s smart. He’s sweet. He’s can be a know-it-all. Rubs some the wrong way. But…not a bad guy after awhile.
