The Incredible Shrinking Press Corps

By Josh Feit June 30, 2009

The press corps in Olympia is about to lose another reporter.

The Olympian's Adam Wilson has taken a job as Governor Chris Gregoire's speech writer.


Wilson tells PubliCola: "I'll still be able to do what I like to do—talk to the public about public policy—in a job that has a future in it. We all know that newspapering is in hard times."

Wilson has been at the Olympian for five years and wrote a killer state politics blog. He says the Olympian wants to fill his spot. (It'll be tough to do, I say.)

Asked if this proved he was just another Democrat from the liberal media revealing his hand, Wilson said: "Nobody asked me about my politics in the interview."
