Based on the amount of trash-talking that gets whispered to us, it’s pretty clear that Washington’s glossy mags don’t really
like respect each other. Or, at the very least, they’re always moaning that they had such-and-such story first, or that so-and-so stole their idea. It’s sort of like the Capitol Hill newspaper rivalry, just even sillier, if you can imagine such a thing.
But these cat fights don’t ever see the light of day…until now.
A little diss at Capitol File tucked inside the latest Washington Life magazine:
Overheard but unconfirmed: “…A certain table-leg-balancer (read: carpetbagging, social ‘zine) just released their annual who-to-date guide. Despite the list’s disappointing nautical launch party earlier this summer (too much seasickness; not enough Seagrams), I checked it twice. My take? Don’t put too much stock in the poorly researched categories.”
It’s on! Your turn, Cap File!
