MSNBC.com adds Irin Carmon, Tim Noah and others

Irin Carmon is joining MSNBC.com to write about women, politics and culture. “Her keen observations and passionate views have made her a regular on MSNBC. Since she was in the building so often, we thought she might as well just move in,” writes MSNBC.com executive editor Richard Wolffe.

He also announces that Tim Noah is joining the site as a contributing writer, focusing on politics and the economy.

Wolffe’s memo announcing these hires and others is after the jump.
