Who’s that?

From wiki.

Weigel has written for USA Today, as an editorial assistant on the editorial page and as a reporter for Campaigns & Elections, for Slate, The Guardian, The American Prospect, The American Spectator, The Washington Monthly, the American Conservative, Politico, the Washington Independent, and The Nation. He has appeared on NPR’s Fresh Air and MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show.[10] Weigel has also blogged for The Economist’s “Democracy in America” blog, and guest-blogged for Andrew Sullivan’s “Daily Dish” blog.[11]

In June 2010, excerpts of Weigel’s emails from JournoList were leaked and published by Fishbowl DC and later The Daily Caller. The excerpts contained negative remarks about various public figures associated with American conservatism such as Pat Buchanan, Matt Drudge, Newt Gingrich and Rush Limbaugh as well as being critical on the way many news outlet cover the more fringe elements of the grassroots members of American conservatism.[12] As a result of the leaked emails, Weigel resigned from Washington Post and JournoList was shut down.[3][13]
