Allen on Allen & Parnes – Not as Sexy as It Sounds

Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes got spanked this morning by Mike Allen -but not in a good way. Ya think Mike would have written this the same way if Jonathan and Amie still worked for Politico…?

From today’s Playbook:

JON KARL PANS HILLARY BIO – “A Valentine for Hillary: A portrait of a secretary of state who was – in the authors’ telling – selfless, tough, brilliant, steady, wise and amazing … a rapturous account,” by ABC’s Jonathan Karl in The Wall Street Journal: “‘HRC’ is a book touted as the first in-depth account of Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state, written by respected Washington reporters Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes. … There is some new reporting, but it’s buried in mixed metaphors and cliché-ridden praise of Mrs. Clinton’s brilliance. Mr. Allen and Ms. Parnes appear to have fallen in love with their subject.” http://goo.gl/J1vPKU

–PLAYBOOK WAGER: Secretary Clinton will be tougher on herself in her own book, due out later this year, than these reporters were in theirs.

Woah, “these reporters.” Lesson learned: Once you leave Politico, you are dead to Politico. Politico will act as if it never even knew your name. Suffice it to say, these two aren’t getting a birthday shout-out anytime soon…
