On Friday afternoon, Daily Caller Editor-in-Chief Tucker Carlson sent a memo to staff signaling to them that they officially have a new editor for at least for six weeks while all parties see if it’s a good fit. As we reported yesterday, his Tim Cavanaugh, formerly of Reason and the non-pornographic Suck.com.
“I want to be completely clear that although he hasn’t yet signed a permanent contract with us, Tim is now the executive editor, and I expect him to be treated as such,” Carlson wrote, adding that he’s traveling this week but to do all they can to welcome him.

Today begins Tim Cavanaugh‘s six-week trial run at The Daily Caller. Formerly of the Libertarian leaning Reason magazine, Cavanaugh could, if all goes well, permanently replace David Martosko, now at the Daily Mail‘s new Washington bureau.
Cavanaugh is a former Los Angeles-based screenwriter. He was managing editor of Reason.com and a columnist for the magazine. Previously, he was a web editor of the LAT opinion page and Editor-in-Chief of Suck.com. His work has appeared in The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, Slate, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Beirut Daily Star, San Francisco Magazine, Mother Jones, Agence France-Presse, Wired, Newsday, Salon, Orange County Register, and The Rake magazine.
So far at this budding stage, reviews are positive. As one individual phrased it, “Cool dude.”
