Journalist behind Washington Post's successful Wonkblog leaving paper to start new news organisation

Ezra Klein
Ezra Klein, the impresario behind the widely read policy blog Wonkblog, is leaving the Washington Post "to start his own news organization," the newspaper announced on Tuesday.
 In nearly five years at the Post, Klein built a readership hungry for detailed but accessible forays into dense policy issues, from the federal budget to healthcare to social security. Klein also wrote a widely circulated morning newsletter, Wonkbook. Details of Klein's new project were unknown.
Klein was taking with him at least one other Wonkblog writer, Dylan Matthews, as well as Post director of platforms Melissa Bell.
