News and Politics Editor

Josh Feit writes the Power Lines department, which focuses on the latest local political standoffs and the often unseen power structures that make Seattle tick. He also heads up the magazine’s go-to city politics blog, PubliCola, where he provides daily scoops in his Morning Fizz column.

A veteran local reporter, Josh was the news editor at the city’s alt-weekly The Stranger for nine years before founding PubliCola, the first blog in state history to get media accreditation to cover the state legislature. He was thrilled when Seattle Met added him and the blog to the SagaCity family in 2012.
