Reporter moves back into journalism

Dan Morain landed as communications director for the Consumer Attorneys of California in February after 27 years at the Los Angeles Times, the last chunk of that in the Sacramento bureau. The Times' James Rainey wrote about Morain in September as an example of "media-bypass journalism," the new model in which journalists dig up news for institutions such as, in his case, the trial lawyers group. Well, the Sacramento Bee has announced Morain will join the paper's editorial board as senior editor, writing editorials and opinion columns with a focus on the Capitol and state politics. "We take special pride in bringing a journalist of this caliber back to newspapers," editorial page editor Stuart Leavenworth says in the story.
