Reporter Gives Shout-Out to Her Editor

Consider this just as good as flowers.

MSNBC “The Daily Rundown” host Chuck Todd always concludes the program by asking his guests for a “shameless plug.” Answers involve everything from shout-outs to spouses and children to compliments to colleagues, sports teams and more. On Tuesday WaPo National Political Reporter Nia-Malika Henderson took the opportunity to praise her editor Anne Bartlett. Who praises editors anymore? They have no appreciation day. She must’ve been thrilled.

Henderson gushed, “She moves a ton of copy and makes us all look great.” She also called her a “wonderful editor.” To which Todd joked, “When you praise your editor it means you have a tough week.”
