WaPo Editor Plays Favorites; WaPo not Chosen

There is some grumbling in WaPo‘s newsroom over the new innovations editor Mark Luckie (he replaced Paul Volpe who went to TBD). Luckie’s a well-known new media thinker, but this is his first big move into the real world of doing new media at a big paper.

Apparently in the middle of the day on Election Day (which should be go-time at the Post), Luckie took time to post his favorite news site election day front pages on his own old “10,000 words” blog to which he still contributes. And WaPo didn’t make his own cut.

Humility? Or just humiliated?
