Washington Post to launch economic policy blog featuring Ezra Klein
The Washington Post will launch Wonkblog, a new online feature combing reporting and analysis on economic and domestic policy, on Tuesday.
An outgrowth of Ezra Klein’s popular policy column, Wonkblog will provide news updates, interviews and analysis throughout the day with reporting by policy writers Suzy Khimm, Sarah Kliff and Brad Plumer, and continued reporting and commentary by Klein.
“It is abundantly clear that government policy and regulation are critical for businesses and the health of the U.S. economy,” said Raju Narisetti, managing editor of The Post, in a statement. “Wonkblog will build on Ezra’s insightful work on important issues such as healthcare, energy and financial reform.”
In addition to appearing on washingtonpost.com, Wonkblog will have a frequent presence in The Post’s daily business section and in Sunday Business.
“Our goal with Wonkblog is to deliver policy news in an aggressive, engaging and accessible way,” said Klein in a statement. “We’re focused on breaking down the jargon and delivering news that helps link the effects of policy to our readers’ lives. Suzy, Sarah and Brad are already excelling at that task in the posts they’ve penned this past month leading up to the Wonkblog launch.”
