You may have noticed Peter Baker taking a stab at the Post’s “In the Loop” page Monday (which already features Jeffrey Birnbaum, Al Kamen and Lois Romano).
Since Kamen took the buyout, he’s now on contract and one of the
things he wanted to do was scale back from three columns a week to two. Therefore, in order to replace his Monday column, the Post has started a new White House “Loop” column (similar to the K Street “Loop” column about lobbying on Tuesdays by Birnbaum and the On the Hill “Loop” column about Congress on Thursdays by Romano). Michael Fletcher will primarily author the White House “Loop” column, but Baker and Michael Abramowitz will fill in on occasion.
