The Huffington Post Poaches New York Times Energy Reporter

For some reason, we get the feeling that each time The Huffington Post hires a full time editor and/or reporter, Arianna Huffington yells “See? I told you all we’re a real news organization!” We’re not sure who she’s yelling it to (maybe a cat), but it seems like she’s yelling either way.

The latest addition to the team? Tom Zeller, formerly the Energy Reporter for The New York Times. HuffPo has hired him as its new Senior Reporter, Energy & Environment. Zeller had been with the Times since 2008, where he covered a broad range of subjects, from online fraud to politics.

Huffington said of adding Zeller to The Huffington Post:

Tom will cover the economic and social implications of energy and climate policy, including the impact on the health of our communities. He’s shown that he can deliver game-changing, in-depth investigative reporting using all the multimedia tools online journalism has to offer.
