New Giuliani Book Coming Out

From Soft Skull Press:

    Now that Rudy Giuliani has filed his statement of candidacy papers to the Federal Election Commission, Soft Skull Press is pleased to announce the publication of “AMERICA’S MAYOR, AMERICA’S PRESIDENT?: THE STRANGE CAREER OF RUDY GIULIANI,” the revised and expanded edition, edited by Robert Polner, with a Preface by Jimmy Breslin.

    Forthcoming April 2nd, this new edition includes Michael Powell of the New York Times on Rudy & Race; Paul Schwartzman of the Washington Post on his formative years; and Richard Steier on the Kerik Affair.

A Postie’s Thoughts On Powell’s Departure

A Postie writes in to say that the newsroom is perplexed by management’s inability to keep Michael Powell on staff.

    He wanted to stay in New York. The eds wouldn’t make any promises beyond the presidential campaign. So he found himself a way to stay in NYC for good and we’re down another great talent. We’re bleeding great journalists here and the staff is beginning to look anemic.

Is the Style’s section’s political beat the journalistic equivalent of the Spinal Tap drummer’s seat? Mark Leibovich leaves, then David von Drehle and Powell bolt before they’ve even gotten the chair warm. Who’s next to go?

Anthony Faiola New New York Bureau Chief For W. Post

From the Post:

    We’re delighted to announce that Anthony Faiola, the Post’s Tokyo bureau chief, will become our next New York bureau chief after a great run as a foreign correspondent. Tony succeeds Michael Powell, who returns to Style as a political writer for the 2008 campaign after a distinguished turn in National anchoring us in New York and New England for the entire post-9/11 period. Tony brings to New York the veteran correspondent’s eye for news – combined with the flair of a cultural anthropologist who could easily earn a second living as a trend spotter. After arriving at the Post’s financial desk in 1994 from the Miami Herald, Tony quickly set out for parts abroad.

    As Buenos Aires bureau chief from 1997 to 2003, he ranged widely across South America, keeping us up to date on everything from Brazilian soccer to Chile’s runaway Nazis to the Argentine economic collapse. Once he landed in Tokyo, he became immersed in the Dear Leader’s nuclear tantrums on what he likes to call Planet North Korea, took us deep inside the region’s still-present World War II-era animosities and chronicled life in Japan, the world’s most rapidly graying nation.

Washington Post Moves

We hear that The Washington Post’s New York bureau chief, Michael Powell, is going to report on the presidential campaign for the Style section. He’ll be part of a team that will include a TBA replacement for Mark Leibovich and David von Drehle. Powell will be based in New York. Word on the street is that associate editor Kevin Merida is likely to contribute to Style’s political coverage too. Powell + Merida = 2/3 of Style’s impressive political team of 2000, way back when Dana Milbank was also on board.
