NBC NEWS HIRES HUFFPO EDITOR TO OVERSEE DIGITAL POLITICAL COVERAGE

After a full dozen years with HuffPost in various management/reporting posts Amanda Terkel is joining NBC News as senior politics editor.

In her new position, which starts November 14th, she will oversee the network’s digital political campaign coverage.

Terkel, who has covered news on sexual harassment in Democratic Party politics, the effects of the #MeToo movement in the Democratic Party, and a senator’s mistreatment of her staff, apparently unsettles some of the folks at FOX News, where a web article acidly described her as a “reliable lefty.”

Pete Hegseth, Ainsley Earhardt and Rachel Campos-Duffy are evidently regarded as straight down-the-middle “journalists.”

Stop laughing.
