Dana Milbank Takes On Opinion Column at Washington Post


Dana Milbank will be giving up his “Washington Sketch” analysis column at the Post to launch an opinion column on the editorial page, Howard Kurtz reports today. “Anybody reading my column would make an informed judgment that I’m left-of-center, and I wouldn’t quarrel with that,” Milbank notes. “But strongly ideological people on the left do not recognize me as one of their own.” The question of whether funny people think of him as one of them will remain unanswered: He said he’s not going to give up some of his online video work, which is, shall we say, hit or miss.
