Na­tion­al­Journ­al.com Adds Health Care to Policy Chan­nel Of­fer­ings as Part of Site Re­design
Sam Baker to Lead Na­tion­al Journ­al Health Care

WASH­ING­TON, D.C., Oct. 29, 2013 — As the Obama Ad­min­is­tra­tion con­tin­ues to ad­dress the prob­lems around the im­ple­ment­a­tion of the Af­ford­able Care Act and the Health­care.gov site, Na­tion­al Journ­al de­b­uted a new di­git­al chan­nel ded­ic­ated to health care policy. Na­tion­al Journ­al Health Care provides com­pre­hens­ive, up to the minute cov­er­age and ana­lys­is of what’s trend­ing in the health care policy arena. Cov­er­age is led by health care re­port­er Sam Baker, who re­cently joined Na­tion­al Journ­al from The Hill. Cor­res­pond­ents Soph­ie No­vack and Clara Rit­ger are also con­trib­ut­ing to the ver­tic­al along with oth­ers in the news­room, giv­en the scope of the is­sue.

“Na­tion­al Journ­al Health Care of­fers high-util­ity re­port­ing and ana­lys­is for Na­tion­al Journ­al read­ers, from our mem­bers to our sub­scribers to any­one else need­ing com­pre­hens­ive cov­er­age of health care re­lated is­sues,” said Tim Grieve, Na­tion­al Journ­al’s Ed­it­or-in-Chief. “And Sam Baker is the ideal journ­al­ist to lead this ef­fort.”

An es­tab­lished and re­spec­ted health care policy journ­al­ist in Wash­ing­ton, Baker has been cov­er­ing health care for over 6 years, re­port­ing on the pas­sage and early im­ple­ment­a­tion of the Af­ford­able Care Act at In­side Health Policy and later at The Hill.

A daily email news­let­ter, Health Care Edge, will com­ple­ment the di­git­al re­port­ing and will be avail­able at no cost. “With the Health Care Edge, we’ll be able to reach a wider audi­ence that’s both plugged in and curi­ous, but for whom the full suite of products and premi­ums that we provide for our mem­bers isn’t ne­ces­sary,” ad­ded Grieve.

The new Health Care chan­nel fol­lows Na­tion­al Journ­al En­ergy, which was in­tro­duced Oc­to­ber 1 as part of the roll-out of Na­tion­al­Journ­al.com’s lar­ger re­design. It fea­tures re­port­ing and ana­lys­is from Amy Harder, Cor­al Dav­en­port, Alex Brown, Clare For­an and Patrick Re­is. Harder also leads the daily news­let­ter, En­ergy Edge, which, like its health care coun­ter­part, is a free, opt-in product and fea­tures Harder’s take on what’s trend­ing in en­ergy plus high-util­ity sum­mar­ies of the day’s news and events.

The launch of Na­tion­al Journ­al Health Care and Na­tion­al Journ­al En­ergy build on the sus­tained, dra­mat­ic growth hap­pen­ing throughout the pub­lic­a­tion. Na­tion­al­Journ­al.com set an all-time re­cord for web­site traffic in Septem­ber, and Oc­to­ber’s traffic is ex­pec­ted to be nearly double what it was in the first part of 2013.

GOP Budget Chiefs Won’t Invite Administration to Testify

THE DETAILS

The administration will release its 2017 budget blueprint tomorrow, but the House and Senate budget committees won’t be inviting anyone from the White House to come talk about it. “The chairmen of the House and Senate Budget committees released a joint statement saying it simply wasn’t worth their time” to hear from OMB Director Shaun Donovan. Accusing the members of pulling a “Donald Trump,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the move “raises some questions about how confident they are about the kinds of arguments that they could make.”

A DARK CLOUD OVER TRUMP?
Snowstorm Could Impact Primary Turnout

THE LATEST

A snowstorm is supposed to hit New Hampshire today and “linger into Primary Tuesday.” GOP consultant Ron Kaufman said lower turnout should help candidates who have spent a lot of time in the state tending to retail politicking. Donald Trump “has acknowledged that he needs to step up his ground-game, and a heavy snowfall could depress his figures relative to more organized candidates.”
