Slate Hires Liberal Boybander Blogger

Think ProgressMatt Yglesias has accepted a job at Slate. Just moments ago he wrote on Twitter, “Non-ironically-breaking: I’m leaving @ThinkProgress for an exciting new job at @Slate.” He wrote about his departure in a post on Think Progress calling it an “Important Programming Announcement.”

He wrote, “I’ve got an important announcement to make. I’ve been offered, and have accepted, an exciting new job opportunity with Slate where I’ll be blogging and column-writing (columnizing?) about economics, business, and economic policy as the latest incarnation of Moneybox.”

We hope his new job description does not include “columnizing.”

Yglesias begins his new position on Nov. 21.

Correction: Indeed, I did mistake Wired‘s Spencer Ackerman for Matt Yglesias. Apologies. And relax, Sara Libby. Will all be okay.
