White House Mocks Politico

Will Politico soon be joining Fox News on the White House’s blacklist? Marc Ambinder at The Atlantic has gotten his hands on an email circulating among White House staffers that mocks a recent article by Politico editor John Harris headlined, “Seven stories that Barack Obama doesn’t want told.” Entitled “7 narratives Politico is fighting in their efforts to get an interview with the President,” it includes entries like “they are more interested in readers than accuracy”; “its okay to be wrong everyonce in a while, if your are the first one to break the news [sic]”; and “a spouter of the worst sort of conventional wisdom.” Ambinder cautions: “don’t read too much into this.”
