Chris Lehmann is the New Editor of *The New Republic*


I just learned this.

Lehmann comes to The New Republic from his previous post as editor at The Baffler.  He is a former graduate student of Christopher Lasch and the author of  The Money Cult: Capitalism, Christianity, and the Unmaking of the American Dream.  We have covered his work here and here.

Here is an interesting interview with Lehmann about being a journalist in 2018.
