A Little Birdy Tells Us…

That Politico‘s Editor-in-Chief John Harris was spotted dining in Georgetown on Monday with CNN “Reliable Sources” host and Daily Beast/Newsweek Washington Bureau Chief Howard Kurtz. The tipster wrote, “Howie Kurtz and JHarris deep in conversation over lunch together in Georgetown on Monday. This can’t be good.”

Sources we spoke with say it’s unlikely that Politico is considering hiring Kurtz, but rather, they’re Washington oldies former coworkers at WaPo who wanted to catch up and swap stories. What’s more, Harris recently appeared on Kurtz’s program to discuss the infamous eBook. Maybe they wanted to flesh that out a little bit.

We asked Harris about it. He remarked by email, “Ha. Shooting the breeze over a hot chocolate.”
