FBDC’s 12 Stories of Christmas

We understand if checking up on FishbowlDC wasn’t exactly your top priority this holiday season -you had a lot going on.

Therefore, we’ve compiled a helpful round-up of the 12 biggest FishbowlDC stories you might have missed while you were away. You’re welcome.

Neil Irwin Ditches WaPo for NYT

Sometimes love just ain’t enough, as they say. Neil Irwin, the economics wunderkind and Wonkblogger who essentially grew up among the florescent lit hallways of the WaPo newsroom, is now spreading his wings and leaving the nest. He will join David Leonhardt in developing NYT‘s new, fancy, “we-don’t-need-no-stinkin’-Nate-Silver” data-driven journalism start up. Irwin has been at WaPo for 13 years, starting as an intern in 2000 and becoming one of the main contributors to the much ballyhooed Wonkblog.

His departure will no doubt fuel speculation about Wonkblog’s editor, Ezra Klein. Reports have surfaced recently that Klein is about to leave WaPo to start his own venture. Wonkblog has been a major boon to WaPo -bringing in more that 4 million page hits per month -and the departure of its chief architects is a significant loss for the paper. Read the memo to staff from Greg Schneider and David Cho announcing the departure after the jump.
