Politico Behind On Bloomberg Scoop

The first item in Politico‘s Playbook by Mike Allen today concerns Deputy Nat. Security Adviser Denis McDonough potentially being named White House Chief of Staff. “Exclusive” doesn’t appear next to the bit, but there’s also no credit for Bloomberg News’s Hans Nichols who broke the story last week that McDonough was likely to land the job.

McDonough “is expected to be named White House chief of staff soon,” Allen’s item says. It also comes just one day after Nichols wrote a followup piece that said President Obama “has signaled to his senior advisers that Denis McDonough … is his leading candidate to succeed Jack Lew as White House chief of staff.”

We’ve reached out to Allen for comment.

A FishbowlDC reader was more than incensed about the Bloomberg reporter not getting proper credit…“Mike Allen acts like it’s HIS scoop in playbook. NO MENTION of the Bloomberg piece. Mike Allen is such a little bitch, fuck that guy.”
