HuffPo Hires Axelrod’s Son

Politics and media, getting cozy? The Washington Post reports that The Huffington Post has hired Ethan Axelrod, the son of White House senior adviser David Axelrod. "I've been interested in journalism for a while," the 22-year-old Ethan said Tuesday. "I heard through my father that they were expanding, so I applied for it." Ethan will work for The Huffington Post’s new Denver site, which will go live in September. His father also began his career as a journalist, and once worked for the Chicago Tribune.
