Romney’s Top Strategist Leaps to the Liberal 'Daily Beast'

Thursday, 28 Mar 2013 04:33 PM

By Bill Hoffmann

In a move that would have been scoffed at as impossible six months ago, the chief strategist for Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign has joined The Daily Beast, considered by many as one of the nation’s most liberal news outlets.

Stevens will write a regular column on politics for the website, which was founded by Tina Brown, former editor of The New Yorker and Vanity Fair.

“Stuart’s eclectic background and prodigious writing talent make him a wonderful addition to our team,” Brown said in a memo to her staff, according to FishbowlNY.

She called Stevens “a political heavy hitter’’ with an “eclectic background and prodigious writing talent.’’

Stevens was hammered by senior Republican operatives for his campaign strategies following Romney’s staggering loss.

The Washington Post quoted one source as calling the campaign’s spending decisions on advertising look like “campaign malpractice.’’

The Daily Beast was listed as one of the Top 20 most liberal media outlets by RightWingNews.com.

Stevens is the second major political hire by the Daily Beast, following Jon Favreau, who was President Barack Obama’s speechwriter.

He also worked on John McCain’s presidential campaign and was a television writer, penning scripts for such shows as “Northern Exposure’’ and “Commander in Chief.’’
