Taking Out The Trash, 03.29.06

We Heart Post Parties Edition:

  • R.I.P. Lee Hall, correspondent for NBC-TV and VOA.

  • With Libby Copeland at least temporarily taking over Mark Leibovich’s job, looks like he’s doing a bit of on the job training (in the form of dual bylines) before he passes the baton.

  • Reliable Source reports on the return of Rebecca Roberts (daughter of Cokie and Steve) to Washington, where she will hosta new WETA-FM daily talk show.

  • Do Post columnists have too much free time? After all, what the hell is Eugene Robinson doing reviewingAmerican Idol?

  • Congrats to the Post’s Scott Higham and Robert O’Harrow Jr. for winning “the top award for newspapers of circulation greater than 500,000 in the Investigative Reporters and Editors investigative reporting competition.”

  • The Wonkettes get Ben Domenech on the record. DailyKos is currently looking into whether Domenech’s email to the Wonkettes was also written by Jonah Goldberg at any point in the past five years.

  • MediaMatters.org can’t keep secrets.
