NJ’s Fung: Why’d You Miss Your Party?

The gang from R to L: WSJ’s Danny Yadron and Andrew Grossman, Sahil Kapur from TPM, Politico‘s Tim Mak and Emily Schultheis, and Asawin Suebsaeng from Mother Jones and his girlfriend.

Earlier this week, friends of National Journal‘s new tech reporter, Brian Fung, former an associate editor for The Atlantic, drank to his success at Shaw Tavern while he was markedly absent.

Dinner apparently ran late, causing him to miss the festivities. But friends kindly toasted to him anyhow. “Congrats to @b_fung on your new job,” cracked Politico‘s Byron Tau on Twitter. “Wish you could have made it to your own party!”

We asked Fung about missing out. He replied, “I had a bit of an accidental scheduling conflict that evening. Serves me right — you live by the meme, you die by the meme.”
