Michael Wolff no longer writes for the Guardian

Capital | CJR


The Guardian has discontinued Michael Wolff's media column, Joe Pompeo reports.

"It has been a longstanding and productive relationship for which we are grateful," a Guardian U.S. spokesperson told Capital in a statement. "It's always been interesting, never dull and more often exciting. We wish him the best of luck."


Asked if there was any specific reason for the split, the spokesperson would only say: "It's time to go our separate ways."

Wolff's hasn't written for The Guardian since late March. Last week, CJR's Ryan Chittum wrote about Wolff's columns, noting he is the founder of Newser, a news aggregator that competes with some of the companies he covers. Wolff also writes a column about media for USA Today.



The Guardian didn't answer Chittum's queries about Wolff, but USA Today Editor-in-Chief David Callaway did: “I’ll discuss with him and his editor," Callaway wrote. "We’re happy to disclose all relationships that might appear to cause conflict."
