Politico Strikes Gold
by

I have been extremely critical of Politico for its report on the day of the Iowa caucuses that Fred Thompson would be withdrawing from the race by that weekend unless he met certain results (that he did not end up meeting). So far, to my knowledge, the paper still has not acknowledged error.
Now, though, they have done the next best thing: They have moved on from that horrendously bad journalism by hiring the single best reporter I have ever known. David Rogers, for many years the top Capitol Hill reporter for the Wall Street Journal, will now start working for the Politico. Rogers knows EVERYTHING that goes on in Congress, it seems. Sometimes he seemed to know more about certain developments, and know about them earlier, than did the very congressmen who were supposed to be working on those developments. His reports are always balanced, fair, thorough — utterly unimpeachable.
And he is, personally, one of the most admirable characters I know in this business.
Good luck to Rogers at his new post, and congrats to Politico for landing him!
