Only a few weeks after forcing him out, the Washington Post has rehired Dave Weigel to do the same job he did before — only for Slate, the online magazine that they also own. Gee, you mean they could have saved all this nonsense over the last few weeks and just transferred him? Good thinking, guys.
And frankly, I don’t know why he would go back to work for the same shortsighted company. I can’t imagine he didn’t have offers at least that good from people who didn’t stab him in the back and show how ridiculous they are.
