Washington Post online columnist David Weigel was forced to resign in 2010 for ... well, pretty much for having opinions. He quickly landed at online publication Slate — owned, oddly enough, by the Washington Post — with an eponymous blog. As before, his work skews toward coverage of conservatives. But while he's a reporter with opinions (and good sources), he isn't a reporter with an agenda. If you think the fact that Weigel writes for Slate will help you predict what he'll say about someone like Tea Party icon Rand Paul, you're probably wrong. That's precisely what makes him worth reading.
