WaPo’s Johnson to NPR Washington Desk; Shapiro to the White House

This just in from NPR Senior Washington Editor Ron Elving to NPR staff today:

“All, I am delighted to announce that Carrie Johnson will join the Washington Desk as our new correspondent on the Justice beat. Carrie has been the Justice reporter for The Washington Post for two years, following eight years as a financial reporter for The Post. On the Justice beat she has broken stories on the prosecution of alleged terrorists and on the failed federal prosecution of former Sen. Ted Stevens. In her business staff years she covered the trials of executives from Enron, Tyco and HealthSouth and won awards for team coverage of Fannie Mae and the Microsoft antitrust issues. Previously, Carrie was a senior reporter for Legal Times. She is a graduate of Benedictine University and the University of Wisconsin School of Journalism and Mass Communication. She succeeds Ari Shapiro on the beat, as he transitions to covering the White House. She begins on April 26. Please join us in welcoming Carrie to NPR!”

Fox News Lashes out Against NPR

Fox News is firing back on the matter of NPR’s Mara Liasson being asked to “reconsider” her appearances on the network’s shows, “Fox News Sunday” and “Special Report.”

“With the ratings we have, NPR should be paying us to even be mentioned on our air,” a Fox News spokesperson said.

Liasson, a longtime regular on the network, was asked to reconsider her appearances on the network’s shows, Politico reported earlier today.

The reason? Fox News’s “political bias.”

Liasson was approached by NPR’s executive editor for news Dick Meyer, and the network’s supervising Washington editor Ron Elving. Liasson, according to sources, does not intend to stop appearing on Fox News shows.

Neither NPR nor Fox News spokespeople spoke to Politico.
