Washington Post hires a conservative blogger

The Cutline
Jennifer Rubin, who has been at Commentary Magazine, will launch a Post blog next month that “will provide critical news coverage and commentary, with an exacting eye on conservative policy-making and Republican campaigns, pundits and politicians,” according to a memo obtained by Michael Calderone. || More WP news: Steven Pearlstein is joining the George Mason University faculty and will cut back his twice-weekly column to once a week.
