Postwatch--you were the most reliably useful blog in existence for those of us condemned to live in Northern Virginia with the Washington Post monopoly in print, on the radio, and on TV. When I wanted a clear exposition of an event, yours was the source I turned to, and eventually it led me to cancel the Post. I always looked forward to your daily takedown of the bloated, self-deceiving, biased and incomplete reporting that passed for journalism in the WP. We will miss the insight of your blog; good luck with your new endeavor. PJJ

Congratulations, Chris, on both the new gig and the fine long run of PostWatch.

This swan song itself was also quite well done. It got me thinking along the lines of "bravo for life's little ironies". There was a time when blogging was subversive, when being out as a critical blogger could endanger a mainstream journalism career, when people posted under pseudonyms.

And now bloggers rule. And get jobs doing it about stuff that they're expert in. OK, maybe you'll never quite be Mandy Marcotte, but I'm still proud to say that I knew you when.

Yeah, no kidding.

Hey guys, my new job takes up so much of my time (bummer--less golf!) that this was the first time I came back to check for reactions. Very kind words, thanks very much. I love this blog and I'm grateful that I wasn't the only person who thought it was valuable.

Mission Accomplished!

I will miss Postwatch Chris. Blogs like yours, if they can't keep "professional" journalists honest, can at least place a spotlight on them when they err from bias or simple incompetence. Best of luck at your new job.

Christopher Fotos

Thank you Donald. You're one of the great sane voices among the commentariat of St. Blog's. Thanks for setting an example out there.

I am a member of the probably "silent majority" of those who followed your work on Postwatch -- long-time reader, never posted, but found it an excellent resource that will be sorely missed. Thank you for providing it to us, and I wish you the very best in your future!

Terrence

Congrats, Chris, and best of luck in your new endeavor. Postwatch was (is) an excellent resource guided by a good guy who always returned emails!

Christopher Fotos

Thanks, daltec. And Terrence is being charitable, or fortunate--apologies to all the fine people who sent me emails that I didn't answer.

Jim McCarthy

What a terrific run the blog had, Chris. Incredibly well done. Large and many thanks for all your diligence and keen, insightful work. You set an early and high standard in this important sphere of media crit. Keep up all the terrific work in the new gig. Here's a glass raised high. Cheers, Jim

Christopher Fotos

Hey man, what a sendoff! Jim McCarthy is one of PostWatch's earliest supporters, and encouraged me probably more than he knows to keep blogging away. So thanks for all that, and now, for goodness sake, try to get some sleep!

saddened. You will be missed.
