Separated at Birth: Atlantic’s Green Joins Bloomberg

The Atlantic’s Anthony Michael Hall lookalike Joshua Green will join Bloomberg Businessweek as senior national correspondent in Washington, D.C.

Green (the real one is up top on far left) is a senior editor at The Atlantic. Some may recall Green’s blockbuster story in March of 2010 when he unearthed the news that former Rep. Eric Massa (D-N.Y.) had allegedly groped subordinates while serving in the Navy.

Fortunately Green’s new boss has favorable things to say about him. “Josh is a great reporter and writer. He knows how to break news and he writes about complicated issues and personalities in memorable prose,” said Bloomberg Businessweek Editor Josh Tyrangiel. “He’s a great addition to our political team and we are thrilled to have him join us.”

Some outlets like HuffPost have already reported the news on Green today.

Green, in addition to The Atlantic, was a weekly political columnist for the Boston Globe. He has also written for The New Yorker, Esquire, Rolling Stone, and other publications. Previously, Green was an editor at The Washington Monthly. His writing has been anthologized in books ranging from The Best American Political Writing to The Bob Marley Reader, and he has appeared on television shows from NBC’s “Meet the Press” to HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher.”
