Tim Noah, who was laid off from Slate in late August, returns to The New Republic as senior editor. He interned there in 1980, and became a staff writer in the early 1980s. “Tim will write both a blog and the TRB column in the magazine,” says editor Richard Just. “He will replace our esteemed colleague Jonathan Chait, who has accepted a position at New York magazine.” || Alix Freedman, who has been deputy managing editor and page one editor at the Wall Street Journal, joins Reuters as Global Editor for Ethics and Standards at Reuters. In one of her roles at the Journal, “she was responsible for overseeing ethics and standards and supervising final-reading of high-impact stories in the newspaper and on the Dow Jones Newswires,” writes Reuters editor-in-chief Steve Adler.
