Emily Miller has a new job as as senior editor for the conservative news site Human Events. Her primary beat will be political investigations. She will no longer be a TWT contributor.
The news is rather timely karma wise. This is the very week that her former boss, ex-Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas), also had some good luck and was cleared by the Justice Department.
The investigation led to in-depth stories with splashy scandal-torn headlines about Miller in WSJ and WaPo regarding the Jack Abramoff ordeal. “Its been a long five years being unfairly associated with and blamed in this ongoing investigation,” Miller told FishbowlDC. “All the former staff became collateral damage.”
But that’s all over now, she says, a relieved note in her voice. “I’m thrilled to move forward and aggressively go after the real scandals and ethics violations,” she said. “Onward and upward.”
Miller’s first day at Human Events is Thursday.
A note (of warning) from Human Events Editor Jason Mattera: “We’re excited to bring Emily on board. She’s tenacious, smart, a helluva writer, and understands the importance of interactive journalism. Leftist politicians, in particular, should be nervous. Emily’s going to expose their corruption, hypocrisy, and vapid ideology.”
