Washington Post loses political journalists Harris, VandeHei

Romenesko Memos
John Harris and Jim VandeHei are leaving the Washington Post for a new politics website. “We will feel their departure keenly,” write the paper’s top two editors. “John and Jim have been valued colleagues and friends to many of us. We’re grateful for the fine journalism they’ve contributed to The Post.” || Fishbowl DC: “VandeHei and Harris are starting a new multi-platform company (owned by Allbritton Communications, which also owns the Capitol Leader) anchored on the Web that just does politics (a sort of one-stop shopping for your political news and coverage online).” || Read Allbritton’s press release.
