Oakrosssm The once cherished Mideast post appears to be a conduit to the promised land of reporting: the European bureaus based in London.

HonestReporting Canada exclusively reports that effective in the near future, Mitch Potter will be on a new assignment for the Toronto Star based in the U.K.  Taking over his beat will be Oakland Ross (pictured), a veteran journalist who was part of the Star’s team covering the Israel-Hezbollah conflict last August.Potterlondon
