Dinner with Matthew Yglesias
Yale-in-Washington is pleased to present:
Dinner with U.S. political blogger Matthew Yglesias, correspondent for Slate's Moneybox.
When: Wednesday July 25 at 7PM
Where: Cuba Libre (801 9th St NW)
Matthew Yglesias is a prominent voice in the American liberal blogosphere. Yglesias started blogging in early 2002, while still in college, focusing mainly on American politics and public policy issues, often approached from an abstract, philosophical perspective. He was one of the supporters of the Iraq war, although he's changed his mind since then.
Yglesias joined the American Prospect as a writing fellow upon his graduation in 2003, subsequently becoming a staff writer. His posts appeared regularly on the magazine's collaborative weblog TAPPED. His personal blog has been hosted, at various times, on blogger, Typepad, Josh Marshall's TPMCafe, and at matthewyglesias.com. From June 2007 until August 2008, he was a staff writer at The Atlantic Monthly, and his blog was hosted on the magazine's website, The Atlantic.
In July 2008, he announced that he would leave The Atlantic Monthly for his current home at the Center for American Progress, because he missed "the sense of collegiality that comes from working with like-minded colleagues on a shared enterprise" and thought he could "help advance their mission."
On November 21, 2011, he left ThinkProgress to work as a business and economics correspondent at Slate's Moneybox.
He has also written for mainstream publications such as the New York Times Magazine, and has made occasional appearances on radio and television as a political commentator. He is a regular contributor to BloggingHeads.tv.
Yglesias attended Harvard University where he studied philosophy. He graduated magna cum laude in 2003.
