Right on the heels of 25-year veteran Evan Thomas' departure last month (see "TUOL" post 8/10/10), Howard Fineman has left Newsweek after a 30-year stint.
Fineman will report on national politics for The Huffington Post and continue to appear on MSNBC. Former editor Jon Meachem and columnist Michael Isikoff are among other luminaries who have abandoned Newsweek since the financially beleaguered newsweekly was sold by The Washington Post to electronics magnate Sidney Harmon in August.
It will fall on the 92-year-old Harmon to recruit fresh talent and established names to replace the magazine's former heavy hitters.
