Longtime media scribe Jack Shafer, who was recently laid off from Slate, is going to work for Reuters where he will cover media and politics. His reaction? “I’m damn happy,” he wrote on Twitter.
Congratulations to Shafer!
A number of publications are announcing the news this afternoon, including NY Magazine’s Daily Intel (which had it first), Poynter, Politico, HuffPost and The Atlantic Wire.
