History[edit] Origins, style, and growth[edit] John F. Harris and Jim VandeHei left The Washington Post
The Washington Post
to become Politico's editor-in-chief and executive editor, respectively. With the financial backing of Robert L. Allbritton, the pair launched the website on January 23, 2007.[4][5] Their first hire was Mike Allen, a writer for Time,[6] and Frederick J. Ryan Jr. served as its first president and chief executive officer.[7] From the beginning, journalists covering political campaigns for Politico
Politico
carried a video camera to each assignment,[8] and they were encouraged to promote their work elsewhere.[9] By 2008, Politico received more than three million unique visits per month.[10] In September 2008, The New York Times
The New York Times
reported that Politico
Politico
would expand its operations following the 2008 presidential election: "[A]fter Election Day, [Politico] will add reporters, editors, Web engineers and other employees; expand circulation of its newspaper edition in Washington; and print more often."[11] Between the 2008 and 2012 elections, Politico's staff more than tripled in size.[12] Notable additions included two political commentators, Michael Kinsley and Joe Scarborough, as opinion writers.[13] In 2009 the web pages shortened their name from The Politico
Politico
to more simply just Politico. In 2011, Politico
Politico
began to focus more on long-form journalism and news analysis.[4][14] This shift in coverage received further support in June 2013 with the hiring of Susan Glasser to oversee "opinion from prominent outside voices" and "long-form storytelling."[15] In September 2014, Glasser was tapped to serve as Politico's new editor, following the resignation of Richard Berke the previous month.[16] In October 2013, VandeHei was named Politico's new chief executive.[17] Under his leadership, Politico
Politico
continued to grow: in 2014 alone, it expanded revenues by 25%.[18] By 2016, Politico
Politico
had nearly 500 employees worldwide.[19] Amidst reports of tensions, VandeHei and Allen announced that they would leave Politico
Politico
after the 2016 presidential election.[4][20] Allbritton was named as CEO in Vandehei's stead.[20] In April 2017, Politico
Politico
announced that investment banker Patrick Steel would succeed as Allbritton as CEO, effective May 8.[21] Politico
Politico
Playbook[edit] On June 25, 2007,[22] Mike Allen launched Playbook, a daily early-morning email newsletter.[23][24] Within a few years, the newspaper had attained a large readership amongst members of the D.C. community.[6] By 2016, over 100,000 people – including “insiders, outsiders, lobbyists and journalists, governors, senators, presidents and would-be presidents” – read Playbook daily.[25] Multiple commentators credit Allen and Playbook with strongly influencing the substance and tone of the rest of the national political news cycle.[6][25][26] Daniel Lippman joined Politico
Politico
in June 2014, in large part to assist Allen with Playbook.[27] Upon Allen’s departure in July 2016, Anna Palmer and Jake Sherman joined Lippman to assume Playbook-writing duties.[28] In March 2017, Politico
Politico
announced the creation of a second, mid-day edition of Playbook – entitled “Playbook Power Briefing” – written by the same people who authored the morning edition.[29] As of 2017, a weekly sponsorship of Playbook costs between $50,000 and $60,000.[30] Politico
Politico
Pro[edit] Politico
Politico
Pro launched in 2010.[31] With roughly 100 reporters at its disposal, Politico
Politico
Pro provides in-depth coverage of over a dozen major topic areas.[31][32] The service charges its readers by topic area, with the costs running well over $1,000 per topic per year.[24][31] Despite the paywall in place, Politico
Politico
Pro has a 93% subscription renewal rate, and it provides one fourth of Politico's overall revenue.[4][24] Access to the main site and the Playbook remained free of charge.[31] Politico
Politico
Magazine[edit]

The Politico, February 15, 2007

In November 2013, Politico
Politico
launched Politico
Politico
Magazine (ISSN 2381-1595), which is published online and bimonthly in print.[33][34] In contrast to Politico's focus on "politics and policy scoops" and breaking news, Politico
Politico
Magazine focuses on "high-impact, magazine-style reporting", such as long-form journalism.[33][35] The first editor of Politico
Politico
Magazine was Susan Glasser, who came to the publication from Foreign Policy magazine.[15][35][36] After Glasser was promoted to become Politico's editor, Garrett Graff was named as editor, followed by Stephen Heuser. In December 2016, Blake Hounshell was named the new editor-in-chief of the magazine.[37] Along with a targeted free audience of roughly 30,000 readers, Politico
Politico
Magazine is available via subscription for $200 per year.[38] Content from Politico
Politico
Magazine is also accessible online.[39] State editions[edit] In September 2013, Politico
Politico
acquired the online news site Capital New York, which also operated separate departments covering Florida and New Jersey.[40] In April 2015, Politico
Politico
announced its intention to rebrand the state feeds with the Politico
Politico
name ( Politico
Politico
Florida, Politico
Politico
New Jersey, and Politico
Politico
New York) to expand its coverage of state politics.[41] Global expansion[edit] In September 2014, Politico
Politico
formed a joint venture with German publisher Axel Springer SE
Axel Springer SE
to launch its European edition, based in Brussels.[42] 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
Politico
brand. Former Wall Street Journal editorial board member Matthew Kaminski
Matthew Kaminski
is the executive editor of the European edition.[43][44] Politico
Politico
Europe debuted in print on April 23, 2015.[45] Website redesign[edit] On March 27, 2018, Politico
Politico
revealed that it had redesigned its website for the first time since 2014.[46] Changes included a redesigned and more mobile-friendly home page, a different typeface (with Din replacing Proxima Nova), and a new "Quick Pops" feed of breaking news stories.[46][47] Controversies[edit] In November 2016, Politico
Politico
editor Michael Hirsh resigned after publishing the home address of white supremacist Richard B. Spencer
Richard B. Spencer
on Facebook.[48][49] In April 2017, Politico
Politico
Magazine published an article purporting to show long-term links between U.S. President Donald Trump, Russian President Vladimir Putin
Vladimir Putin
and the Jewish outreach organization Chabad-Lubavitch.[50] The article was widely condemned, with the head of the Anti-Defamation League
Anti-Defamation League
Jonathan Greenblatt
Jonathan Greenblatt
saying that it "evokes age-old myths about Jews".[51][52][53] Distribution and content[edit] As of 2017, Politico
Politico
averaged 26 million unique visitors a month to its American website, and more than 1.5 million unique visitors to its European site.[54] The print newspaper has a circulation of approximately 32,000, distributed for free in Washington, D.C. and Manhattan.[55] 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.[56] It carries advertising, including full-page ads from trade associations and a large help-wanted section listing Washington political jobs. Politico
Politico
is a partner with several news outlets that co-report and distribute its video, print and audio content. Partners include CBS News,[57] Allbritton Communications's ABC station WJLA and cable channel NewsChannel 8,[8] radio station WTOP-FM,[9] and Yahoo! News election coverage. Ideology and influence[edit] In a 2007 opinion piece, progressive watchdog group Media Matters for America accused Politico
Politico
of having a "Republican tilt".[58] In contrast, in 2011 politically conservative The Daily Caller
The Daily Caller
declaimed Politico
Politico
as having a pronounced liberal bias.[59] Despite these accusations, a 2012 study found that the percentage of Politico
Politico
readers that identify as Democrats – 29% – is the same as the percentage that identifies as Republicans.[60] As of 2018, the largely crowd-sourced analysis engines AllSides rates Politico
Politico
as "Left Lean" in terms of bias.[61] Multiple commentators have credited Politico's original organizational philosophy – namely, prioritizing scoops and publishing large quantities of stories – with forcing more established publications to make a number of changes, such as increasing their pace of production and changing their tone.[4][30][6][62][63] Among the journalists who have worked for Politico
Politico
are:

Mike Allen Dylan Byers Maggie Haberman Eliana Johnson Manu Raju Lois Romano Jack Shafer Ben Smith Glenn Thrush Kenneth Vogel Ben White[64]
