Jennifer Rubin, contributing editor and chief blogger for Commentary Magazine is joining WaPo. Beginning next month Rubin will write a new blog focused on “news coverage and commentary, with an exacting eye on conservative policy-making and Republican campaigns, pundits and politicians. From a conservative perspective, she also will cover a wide range of foreign and domestic issues and media controversies.”
In a memo obtained by FishbowlDC, WaPo’s Fred Hiatt said, “[Rubin’s] provocative writing has become ‘must read’ material for news and policy makers and avid political watchers.”
In addition to Commentary, Rubin’s work has appeared in the Weekly Standard, Politico, the New York Post, the New York Daily News, and the Jerusalem Post. She was a labor and employment lawyer in Los Angeles for 20 years before starting her career in journalism.
