Robert Costa, the National Review reporter whose blow-by-blow reporting on Republican squabbling during the government shutdown earned praise from all corners of the media universe, has taken a job as National Political Reporter at The Bezos Post. Costa has been serving as the Washington Editor at National Review and before that worked at the Wall Street Journal. New York magazine dubbed him the “Golden Boy of the Shutdown” for his reporting, and he’s also been recognized for his coverage of the fiscal cliff negotiations and the 2012 presidential campaign. Editors Cameron Barr, Anne Kornblut and Steven Ginsberg made the announcement in a memo to staff today. Costa starts work on January 6.
