Chris Hughes, co-founder of Facebook and coordinator of Barack Obama's online efforts during the 2008 presidential election, is entering the "old media" fray as publisher and editor-in-chief of the New Republic, the publication announced Friday. Initial response? Journalists who do not write for the New Republic are seething with envy, and wonder if perhaps another Silicon Valley millionaire/billionaire would like to come and inject an infusion of new-media money into their publication too. But it's not just the money, it's also what Hughes is saying about the state of journalism today that is drawing attention.

After nearly five months of mounting criticism, the New Republic has disavowed reports about petty wartime cruelty in Iraq, saying the magazine had lost faith in the Army private who wrote them. "We cannot be confident that the events in his pieces occurred in exactly the manner that he described them," Editor Franklin Foer wrote this week of the dispatches by Scott Thomas Beauchamp. "Without that essential confidence, we cannot stand by these stories."

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Long Beach)--a prominent conservative who favors drug testing for congressional staffs and supports strong anti-drug legislation--used marijuana, hashish and LSD as a young man, the magazine New Republic will report in its Nov. 5 issue. The liberal journal states that Rohrabacher asked former friends--only one of whom is named--not to talk about his youthful drug use during his 1988 congressional campaign, and in exchange agreed to avoid "noisy anti-drug crusading."
