Alter Uninterested in What Brown Can Do for Him

The PromiseImage by elycefeliz via FlickrLong-time national correspondent Jonathan Alter has departed Newsweek, where his byline has appeared since 1983, according to the Website Politico.

It must be a beast daily for Editor Tina Brown to keep marquee journalists at the newsweekly, which merged with The Daily Beast last November (see "TUOL" post 11/12/10).  Last year saw the departure of Newsweek mainstays Howard Fineman, Jon Meacham, Michael Isikoff, Evan Thomas and Fareed Zakaria (see "TUOL" posts 9/21/10 and 8/10/10).

Fans can still worship at the Alter by reading Bloomberg News, The Huffington Post and NBC News, where he continues to write columns, blog and offer analysis. His most recent book is The Promise.
