Michael Barone, longtime political number-cruncher (his Almanac of American Politics was first published in 1972) and increasingly conservative pundit, has moved from U.S. News and World Report to The Washington [D.C.] Examiner.

“I am very excited and pleased to have the chance to join The Examiner at this challenging time for journalism and for our country,” Barone said. “I’m happy to have the chance to return to daily journalism and to have my writing appear in print throughout the Washington area.”

Subtext: U.S. News and World Report is going down. But this is an interesting continuance of the Examiner’s evolution into the city’s mainstream conservative paper, to the more expansive and outre conservatism of The Washington Times.
