Erik Wemple The Washington Post

He has been doing journalism for and about Washington for more than two decades. He started out covering export controls, with an emphasis on the Commerce Department’s long-since-renamed Bureau of Export Administration. But then he took a liking to local affairs, which turned into a position as the Loose Lips columnist for Washington City Paper.

Then came a stint covering Washington for a New York-based, media-obsessed product of the Internet bubble (, now defunct). After eight years as editor of City Paper and another year as editor of, he landed at The Washington Post, where he reports and opines on media organizations of all sorts.

He began contributing articles to the Washington City Paper in the late 1990s. From January 1999 to November 2000, Wemple wrote the paper’s political column, “Loose Lips”, before becoming an editor. Previously, he was a Washington correspondent for and CableWorld magazine.  In 2004, the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies awarded Wemple and Josh Levin an Alternative Newsweekly Award for their article “Off Target”, published in Washington City Paper.

In June 2006, Wemple accepted the editor-in-chief position at The Village Voice. A month later, he announced he would not assume the position, stating that “the paper’s ownership and I have failed to come to terms in our many discussions about moving forward, particularly with respect to newsroom management.”

In February 2010, Wemple informed the staff of the Washington City Paper that he was leaving to be the new editor of

In 2013, J. K. Trotter of Gawker Media declared Wemple a “hero”, and that “like a deeply embedded anthropologist, Wemple scours Washington media (and, not infrequently, their New York counterparts) for hypocrisy, excess, and corruption. He’s the anti-Mike Allen, frequently piercing the Politico’s madman’s self-inflating bubble of hype at the moment it threatens to blot out the sun.”
