And who wouldn't be thrilled to hire McArdle? She chronicled the economic disruptions by alternately denying they existed, ignoring them when they occurred, and attempting to hide the consequences of the events. Her coverage of corporate America could not have been more attentive; every time they wanted anything from the public or government, McArdle leaped to defend and support them. And her knowledge of the technical disruptions of the last decade were epitomized by her posts regaling her readers with her camp-out on the streets to be the first in line to buy an expensive new phone.
Washington, D.C.-based writer for Newsweek/Daily Beast and blogger Megan McArdle is joining the ranks of Bloomberg View, where she will be a columnist covering the economy, business, politics and national affairs.
“Megan is an extraordinary writer and thinker,” said David Shipley, Executive Editor of Bloomberg View in a morning statement. “Few people have done a better job chronicling the economic, corporate and technological disruptions of the last decade. She’s going to make a lot of readers — those who have followed her for years and those who will discover her at Bloomberg — smarter and happier. We’re thrilled that she’s joining the team.”
Let's not forget her extraordinary thinking skills. Her analytical ability, her nuance while navigating tricky moral issues, and most of her keen grasp of logic and reason. These skills enabled her to decide to vote for Bush twice, botch the biggest economic disaster of our times, come out against gay marriage and abortion while claiming to be socially liberal, and never, ever fail to be wrong about practically everything.
Good luck, McArdle!
