We had some technological problems yesterday that I wouldn’t even be able to begin to explain to you, so you might not have seen our news about CNN’s Rebecca Sinderbrand heading to the Big Apple or The Weekly Standard’s/Daily Caller’s Matt Labash’s recent foray into Dear Abby territory.

“The bad news is that we’ll lose Rebecca’s outstanding daily guidance of the CNN Political Ticker,” wrote in a well-wisher. “The good news is that our friends up in New York are getting an outstanding producer with her fingers on the pulse of everything happening in the political world.

Sinderbrand has covered the past three presidential campaigns as a staffer for CNN, Newsweek magazine and the Associated Press. She has reported from the Middle East, including Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Jordan and the West Bank. She has written for the LAT, Time, Slate, Salon, the New York Observer and the Columbia Journalism Review. She’s a Georgetown grad.
