  •  The only flag Politico flies flaps "Politico" (0+ / 0-)

    from every angle possible. And the party that's most exploited this has proven again and again how much it cares in truth about honest, "fair and balanced" reporting. Politico has sold their soul to banality...

    •  I would add hubris to the mast of criticisms (0+ / 0-)

      of Politico, and in fact to much of today's press and pundit class.  Coverage of the gun control debate, of climate change, of VAWA, of a dozen other issues is typically abysmal, and because so many in the press presume their bias into their reporting, as if theirs is the objective reality, the public is ill served, even by some of the celebrity journalists, in some cases, especially by the celebrity journalists.

      The best own their bias, but they often fail on stories they know or care little about personally. Step down a notch from the notoriety, and reporters are all on a feeding frenzy, where bylines and frequency and eyeballs on pages matter more than content.

      Politico has fallen for the carrots here, and they're grown largely on corporate farms.
