First reported in this morning’s POLITICO Playbook, National Review editor Rich Lowry told Mike Allen, “Benny made a terrible mistake. But he has owned up to it and learned from it. He’s a talented journalist, with obviously a lot to contribute. He knows he’s joining a storied institution at NR, and we look forward to his helping us carry on our mission across all platforms.”

And Then There Were None: Betsy Woodruff Leaves National Review for Examiner

Earlier this month, Dylan Byers observed that the National Review Online newsroom was enduring a sudden exodus. Though their political reporting had been praised during the government shutdown in October of last year, by February of this year, many had left for better opportunities. Of the reporters who covered the shutdown, for example, the only one left was Betsy Woodruff.

Well now, even Betsy is saying farewell to the National Review. The Washington Examiner announced yesterday that Woodruff would be coming on board as a Political Writer, reporting on the Senate and House elections this fall. She will also help out on Capitol Hill, and write pieces on political and popular culture that will appear every week or so online and in the Examiner magazine.

National Review‘s Editor Rich Lowry told Byers that he would be hiring more staff soon. But we wonder if he’ll have any time for interviews. At this rate, before long he’ll be busy writing and editing every story on the website by himself.

Washington Journalism Suddenly Gets Sexy: Pubs Engage in a Threesome

They call it bipartisan “coupling” and a brand that will be as powerful as Carville-Matalin or Mitchell-Greenspan. We see a threesome.

The Purple Network, otherwise known as The Nation and National Review, is welcoming a third publication to their rendezvous: CQ Weekly.

The key graph in the statement claims that The Purple Network will be more powerful than Politico, The Atlantic Monthly, The New Yorker and even the NYT Sunday edition. Read more

Morning Reading List 07.09.13.

Conservative editors team up against immigration bill — William Kristol and Rich Lowry have been at odds on immigration reform in the past. But today they’ve teamed up to write an opinion piece (click here to read it on Weekly Standard and here to read it on National Review) urging House Republicans to “kill the bill.” Kristol, editor of the Weekly Standard, has been in favor of reform while Lowry, editor of National Review, has been opposed. Nonetheless, the Gang of Eight bill recently passed by the Senate, has brought them together in explaining how there should be no urgency in passing reform. They argue that the bill is complex and was hastily passed without real examination of the real-world effects it would have. “If you think Obamacare and Dodd-Frank are going swimmingly, you’ll love the Gang of Eight bill,” they write.

Why you should read it: The team of Kristol and Lowry present a well-researched and thorough argument against the Gang of Eight bill as well as a look at where the GOP’s focus should be. Whether you’re for or against the bill, this piece is worth reading.

Do sex scandals matter anymore? — Mark Sanford. Anthony Weiner. And now Eliot Spitzer. Kevin Mahnken of TNR examines this year’s crop of out-of-the-ashes politicians who returned to the campaign trail in 2013 after falling from office at the hands of sex scandals, and what it means for sex scandals in politics going forward. No more is turning “hiking the Appalachian Trail” into an innuendo a political career-killer. And Weiner’s campaign seems to be going better than anyone imagined it would. With Spitzer’s announcement Sunday that he is running for New York City comptroller, which Mahnken notes is a “rather humble municipal office,” makes NYC the city that will determine whether voters care about sex scandals, even if they involve “a taste for expensive call girls,” as in Spitzer’s case. Mahnken also tries to tie the fact that politicians’ marital skills aren’t as important in elections to “the historical move away from laws prohibiting adultery, miscegenation, sodomy, gay marriage, and (probably, let’s face it) polygamy.”

Why you should read it: Do the words “sex scandal” mean anything to you? Mahnken’s piece focuses on three. It also raises an interesting point about redemption and the notion that politicians’ marital mistakes, however heinous and sometimes illegal, may not be an ultimate career-killer.
