The Washington Examiner is losing its editorial cartoonist Nate Beeler, who is leaving Washington to go to work for his hometown newspaper, The Columbus Dispatch.
The reason he gave for leaving was to be with his mother and father who live in Columbus.
An excerpt from the notably gracious internal memo by Editor Stephen Smith:
“Only 31, Nate is a fine draftsman, a natural wit, and a first-rate journalist. And while each of his cartoons has a distinct point of view, he is no ideologue. We may have endorsed Romney for the Republican nomination, but Nate subsequently drew him as Frankenstein, proving emphatically that he is no slave to editorial policy.”
