Distinguished Dinosaur Donezo at New York Post [Updated]

By

Bob McManus, a veteran of the New York Post for nearly 30 years and the tabloid's editorial page editor since 2000, is retiring, his colleague Fred Dicker announced on the radio today. The right-leaning section with an independent streak ultimately answers to Rupert Murdoch, who will replace McManus with a "distinguished" but not yet named columnist from another one of his papers, The Wall Street Journal, according to Dicker. Update: Former George W. Bush speechwriter and current News Corp. VP Bill McGurn will take over.
