Where in the World is WaPo’s Erik Wemple?

world-2-2It’s been nearly two weeks since we heard from Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple and the radio silence has had us worried. Where in the world is Mr. Wemple?

Since August 8, not a post has been made to his site or tweet to his Twitter handle. Is he OK? Is he safe? Did something happen after we saw him two Fridays ago as a guest on PBS’s “Mediatwits” discussing recent accusations and instances of plagiarism in the media industry?
