'The Bulwark' Builds Its Newsroom With Sam Stein Hire

The Bulwark’s turn from being a “never-Trump” outlet to a broader center-right newsroom has taken a new turn. 

The newsletter, which can be found on Substack, has “poached” Sam Stein from Politico and named him as managing editor, effective July 1, just in time for this year’s election coverage, according to a post on X.   

The hire suggests some of the tension that exists in the digital political space. 

Stein, who also held top jobs at The Daily Beast and HuffPost, “has successfully built out several newsroom operations, and we look forward to him helping take the Bulwark to the next level as we continue our rapid growth,” says Sarah Longwell, publisher of The Bulwark.

Commenting on his new assignment, Stein says, “there may not be a more dynamic place in the political ecosystem right now.”
