Kudos to Rich Miniter

PajamasXpress blogger and longtime contributor to this site Richard Miniter has been named to the august title of “vice president of opinion” at the Washington Times. Rich has always been vice president of opinion to us (although we have a number of similar vice presidents).

But he is one of the best, no doubt, and this is the first time that the WT has appointed someone to such a position, “encompassing the [paper’s] editorial page, the Op-Ed page and commentary pages.” Some of these sections are being revamped, notably on the Internet, and the new vice president promises to move at the “speed of blog.” Pajamas Media flatters itself that he may have learned something about that here.

Special congratulations are due Miniter for an honor and responsibility earned.
