WaPo’s Leiby Nabs National Enquirer Editor

WaPo‘s Richard Leiby is concluding his journalism class at GWU with a splash tonight as National Enquirer‘s Executive Editor Barry Levine stops in from New York to discuss love children, tabloid journalism and more. The session will end with a Q & A.  Leiby heads to Islamabad in the new year where he will be Bureau Chief. His team will cover Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Leiby wrote his students:

Class,

For our last class I’ve recruited my friend Barry Levine, the Enquirer’s executive editor, to come from New York to talk about reporting, checkbook journalism (i.e., paying sources), the John Edwards love child, the Jesse Jackson love child, and all the ethical quandaries imaginable that confront a bare-knuckled tabloid reporter. Don’t miss it.

His New York Times column on the death of Elizabeth Taylor last year provides a good introduction: [See the story here.]

Nat’l Enquirer Weighs Opening D.C. Bureau

natenquierersarahpalin.jpgThe National Enquirer may strut its stuff and open up a Washington office, FishbowlDC has learned. The supermarket tabloid is riding the wave of busting the affair and subsequent baby girl of former Sen. John Edwards (D-N.C.) and Rielle Hunter.

In fact, said National Enquirer Executive Editor Barry Levine, credibility would be at an all-time high in the nation’s capitol, since the publication just received the nod from Pulitzer to be nominated for prizes in two categories.

Levine told FishbowlDC that he’d seriously consider Politics Daily columnist Emily Miller for the job of opening the bureau, considering it was she who persuasively convinced him to submit the necessary materials to be considered for a Pulitzer. He referred to Miller as a “pit bull” reporter.

“One day I hope she would possibly consider joining the Enquirer,” Levine said. “If we entertain plans to start a Washington bureau she would be an ideal candidate for the job. I think it’s something that we’ll certainly think about and look into. It could be a bounty of stories based on [our] credibility now in the nation’s capitol.”
