Daily Caller Tries Out New Executive Editor

By Betsy Rothstein Comment

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 PostThe Boston GlobeSlateThe San Francisco Chronicle, The Beirut Daily StarSan Francisco MagazineMother Jones, Agence France-PresseWiredNewsdaySalonOrange County Register, and The Rake magazine.

So far at this budding stage, reviews are positive. As one individual phrased it, “Cool dude.”
