New Huffington Post employee Axelrod “a very nice, unassuming guy,” says colleague

Mediaite | Washington Post
Ethan Axelrod, the 22-year-old son of Obama adviser David Axelrod, has been hired to edit Huffington Post’s Denver news site. “I heard they were expanding, so I applied for [the job],” young Axelrod tells Howard Kurtz. || Reaction from Denver’s Westword: “It’s not a shock, obviously; HuffPo would probably let Sasha and Malia co-write a fantasy football column if they asked.”
> Aren’t there laid-off journalists out there with actual experience?
