Maybe the Quarter-Page Luxury Dorm Story on A1 Clued Them In

Over at Fishbowl DC, they've got a memo from the WaPo about the movement of Keith Alexander from the Business section to the Metro City desk.

Why is he moving? "To take on a social issues beat that will generate narratives about the poor, the working class, crime victims and others whose lives and voices are often underrepresented in our coverage."

Look, I admire the Post. What it does well it does really well. So I'm finding it odd today that the 120-year-old paper of record in this city has decided now it's time to start covering--with one guy--the poor, the working class, and crime victims.
