MEDIA ADVISOR… Steven Waldman, the co-founder of Beliefnet.com and a contributing editor of the Washington Monthly, was named yesterday to an extremely interesting new post in the Obama administration. He’ll be a senior advisor to FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski and in charge of “an agency-wide initiative to assess the state of media in these challenging economic times and make recommendations designed to ensure a vibrant media landscape.” Waldman’s job, in other words, will be to figure out what the government can and/or should do to save journalism. We wish him luck.
