Well, in this case, do. Jason Linkins told Washingtonian‘s Emily Leaman what’s up:

Best and worst local reporters:
“Besides our own shop, I like Marc Ambinder and Greg Sargent. They’re just crackerjack. My knowledge base is assisted considerably through making Matt Yglesias, Ryan Avent, and Spencer Ackerman part of a daily devotional. Spencer’s colleagues at the Washington Independent are great, especially Laura McGann and Dave Weigel. I think Sommer Mathis has done a great job shepherding DCist; the new weekend content is great, and the inauguration coverage was superlative. That said, there’s only one reporter in Washington who possesses actual magic powers, and that’s Liz Glover of the Washington Times.”

These are all solid picks. Jason Linkins has excellent taste.
