Beat changes continue at the New York Times.
With chief political writer Adam Nagourney slated to become the paper's L.A. bureau chief, White House correspondent Jeff Zeleny will be elevated to lead political writer for the paper, Politico reports. Matt Bai, who writes for the New York Times Magazine, will become a regular columnist/analyst for the paper, and Jim Rutenberg will do political investigations.
This is a boon for the Times. For my money, Bai is second only to Ron Brownstein when it comes to smart political analysis.
