The Politico

Ownership, distribution and content

The Politico, February 15, 2007

The newspaper has a circulation of approximately 40,000, distributed for free in Washington, DC, and Manhattan The newspaper prints up to five issues a week while Congress is in session and sometimes publishes one issue a week when Congress is in recess It carries advertising, including full-page ads from trade associations and a large help-wanted section listing Washington political jobs

Politico is a partner with several news outlets that co-report and distribute its video, print and audio content Partners include CBS News, Allbritton Communications's ABC station WJLA and cable channel NewsChannel 8, radio station WTOP-FM, and Yahoo! News election coverage

Journalists covering political campaigns for Politico carry a video camera to each assignment, and journalists are encouraged to promote their work elsewhere Though Politico seeks to break the traditional journalism mold, it expects to make much of its money initially from Washington, DC–focused newspaper advertising Among the reporters who work for Politico are Mike Allen, John Bresnahan, Carrie Budoff Brown, Alex Burns, Dylan Byers, Josh Gerstein, Andrew Glass, Darren Goode, Maggie Haberman, James Hohmann, Anna Palmer, Manu Raju, Daria Knight, Lois Romano, Darren Samuelsohn, Jake Sherman, Glenn Thrush, Kenneth Vogel, and Ben White Roger Simon became The Politico's Chief Political Columnist in December 2006 In 2010, The Politico added two "opinion" columnists, Michael Kinsley and Joe Scarborough

In a 2007 opinion piece, progressive watchdog group Media Matters for America accused The Politico of having a "Republican tilt" In a letter from Editor in Chief John F Harris to Executive Editor Jim VandeHei, Senior Political Writer Ben Smith and Chief Political Correspondent Mike Allen, Harris reminded his colleagues that they had left the more "traditional news organizations" where they had worked previously, starting The Politico with the intent to be more transparent To that end, he asked his colleagues for an honest assessment of the claims set forth in the letter from Media Matters Ben Smith answered: "Media Matters has a point: that Bush's public endorsement made us seem too close to the White House That was clearly a favor from the president to us albeit a small one, and felt to me like one of those clubby Beltway moments that make the insiders feel important and the outsiders feel accurately like outsiders" The other primary editors disagreed with the general accusation for a variety of reasons, and some pointed to accusations of a liberal bias from the other side of the political spectrum In 2011 and 2012, The Daily Caller and Breitbartcom each published stories saying that Politicocom has a liberal bias

In September 2008, The New York Times reported that Politico would expand its operations following the 2008 presidential election: "fter Election Day, will add reporters, editors, Web engineers and other employees; expand circulation of its newspaper edition in Washington; and print more often"

A 2009 profile of the organization in Vanity Fair said The Politico had an editorial staff of 75 and a total staff of 100 Its newspaper circulation is around 32,000, and as of summer 2009, its web traffic was around 67 million unique visitors per month This is fewer than the 11 million it had during the high point of the campaign, but most political news outlets have lower traffic outside election years As of July 2009, it was expected to have annual revenue of around $15 million, primarily from the printed product, enough for the publication to remain financially solvent

State editions

In September 2013, Politico acquired the online news site Capital New York, which also operated separate departments covering Florida and New Jersey In spring 2015, Politico announced its intention to rebrand the state feeds with the Politico name Politico Florida, Politico New Jersey, and Politico New York, effective summer 2015

Global expansion

In September 2014, Politico formed a joint venture with German publisher Axel Springer SE to launch its European edition, based in Brussels In December 2014, the joint venture announced its acquisition of Development Institute International, a leading French events content provider, and European Voice, a European political newspaper, to be re-launched under the Politico brand Former Wall Street Journal editorial board member Matthew Kaminski is the executive editor of the European edition Politico Europe debuted in print on April 23, 2015 Among the reporters who work for Politico are Ryan Heath, Tara Palmeri and Matthew Karnitschnig


In November 2016, Politico editor Michael Hirsh resigned after publishing the home address of white nationalist Richard B Spencer on Facebook

Politico Magazine

In November 2013, Politico launched Politico Magazine, which is published online and bimonthy in print In contrast to Politico's focus on "politics and policy scoops" and breaking news, Politico Magazine focuses on "high-impact, magazine-style reporting," such as long-form journalism The first editor of Politico Magazine was Susan B Glasser, who came to the publication from Foreign Policy magazine
