Not A Bad Day At The Office


By Patrick 

Beat this Woodward: Jo Becker scored front page stories in both the New York Times and the Washington Post this morning.

Becker recently left the Post to join the Times after she finished work on the Cheney series (her husband, Serge Kovaleski, a former Post reporter, went to work at the Times about a year ago…Apparently the NYT doesn’t have the Post’s anti-nepotism policy — they can’t hire someone who’s married to someone who already works there).

We also hear that the Post had to have some carefully negotiated deal when Becker left about how she couldn’t work on any Cheney stories at the Times until the Post series she had worked on was in print.
