Howard Fineman Leaves Newsweek for Huffington Post


After 30 years at Newsweek, Howard Fineman, the magazine’s senior Washington correspondent, is heading to the Huffington Post, where he’ll be senior political editor. Fineman is the latest in a long line of Newsweek staffers who have recently jumped ship. “The digital world is where the action is in my line of work,” he said. And in entirely unrelated media news, Katie Couric told Us yesterday: “My secret fantasy, sadly, is to be on Dancing With the Stars. But, I don’t know, those skimpy outfits. Seriously, it’d be like, ‘Paging Jenny Craig, stat!’” [Media Decoder/NYT, Us Weekly]
