Greg Mitchell to Give The Nation Its Media Fix

TheNationGregMitchell.jpgThe Nation will get its Media Fix from journalist, blogger, and author Greg Mitchell, who will blog about the best and worst each day in media and journalism starting in April, when The Nation’s Website launches its redesign. Mitchell’s @MediaFixBlog Twitter feed launched Monday.

Former Editor & Publisher editor Mitchell contributes to The Huffington Post, writes guest blogs on Talking Points Memo and Daily Kos, and is the author of nine books, including: So Wrong for So Long: How the Press, the Pundits and the President Failed on Iraq; Tricky Dick and the Pink Lady: Richard Nixon vs. Helen Gahagan Douglas; Campaign of the Century: Upton Sinclair’s Race for Governor of California; and The Birth of Media Politics.

The Nation editor and publisher Katrina vanden Heuvel said:

Greg was a great editor at Editor & Publisher, where he challenged the mainstream media, pundits, and the president in the run-up to the war in Iraq. For decades, he has kept a keen eye on what’s right, what’s wrong, and what’s missing from the media. We’re thrilled to have Greg, and we’re excited to launch Media Fix — our first blog at TheNation.com dedicated to the intersection of politics and media.
