Politico’s Rachel Van Dongen leaves for The Washington Post

Politico deputy managing editor Rachel Van Dongen is leaving for The Washington Post, where she’ll “lead a new initiative for the National desk,” The Washington Post announced Thursday.

Van Dongen left the Post to join Politico in 2011 as the news organization was staffing up to cover the 2012 campaign. At Politico, Van Dongen coordinated coverage for some of Washington’s biggest stories, according to the Post, including “the government shutdown, the debt ceiling wars, sequestration and other episodes of Congressional drama.”

In her previous stint at The Post, Van Dongen oversaw The Fix and Post Politics blogs, according to the announcement.

Van Dongen’s is one of several senior-level editors that have left Politico in advance of the 2016 presidential election. Deputy managing editors Laura McGann, Dianna Heitz and Gregg Birnbaum have all departed within the last eight months, followed in some cases by other Politico journalists. Read more

Which news organizations let their reporters swear?

NPR standards editor Mark Memmott issued a terse reminder this morning — packaged with a wry headline — to bleep out swear words in their entirety:

If a word needs to be bleeped, no part of it should be heard. We don’t try to give listeners a hint by including a bit of the word’s start or end.

The post, titled “Bleep The Whole @#$%&*! Word,” links out to NPR’s profanity standards, which state that “language that depicts or describes sexual or excretory activities or organs is indecent or profane.” There are some exceptions: If the profanity is newsworthy or aired after 10 p.m., it might be permitted.

With his post, Memmott becomes the third standards referee to raise the issue of profanity in recent weeks. Read more

CNN Politics Digital continues to staff up

CNN Politics Digital continues to siphon talent from Politico, announcing Monday two new hires from the site.

In a memo to staff Monday, CNN Politics Digital Executive Editor Rachel Smolkin announced former Politico deputy White House editor Hilary Krieger will be the outlet’s enterprise editor. In her new job, Krieger will help “shape and edit” enterprise coverage from her colleagues and create a global affairs and national security beat. Daniella Diaz, formerly a Web producer at Politico, will join the digital production team headed up by Politico alum Dianna Heitz.
