An Open Letter to Politico re: “Click” & Kiki

Dear Politico,

Please add FishbowlDC to your press list. Remember us? The site that writes about you and your industry all day, every day? Doesn’t ring a bell? Ask Patrick Gavin.

1) When you launch new sites (see Politico Click), we’d like to know. Since I covered USA Today’s Wine Club today, chances are you would have gotten a post.

2) If you hire the gossip columnist from the Examiner… The second, in a year…(see Patrick Gavin again). That’s big news too. “Kiki Ryan to Politico” as a subject line would have gotten our attention…

But instead, you buried the lead in your “Politico Click” press release that I got from someone at WaPo (Solid!):

CLICK editors and reporters – Katherine Lehr, Pia Catton, Anne Schroeder Mullins, Patrick Gavin, Amie Parnes and Kiki Ryan – will provide the best behind-the-scenes coverage and take-you-there reporting from all the fetes, the openings, launch parties, embassy dinners, museum exhibits and more.

Anyhow, good luck with your paper, website and Kiki.

Love,

FishbowlDC
