Politico profiles Daniel Lippman, a curious new character on the journalism scene:

The 19-year-old sophomore at George Washington University has become the Washington press corps’ independent fact checker, copy editor and link distributor extraordinaire.  [...] Lippman mops up after the Beltway’s hacks so consistently that it’s a wonder he hasn’t yet flunked out of college. Scarcely a wanton apostrophe or misspelled name will appear in a story without Lippman’s quickly issuing forth an e-mail.

His beneficiaries include AP writers, HuffPo's Sam Stein, Adam Nagourney, Fallows, and, yes, the Daily Dish. A big tip of our hat, Daniel.
