Mike Allen’s Hoarding Problem: The Photo Evidence


That’s a picture someone sent Gawker of Politico reporter Mike Allen‘s office when he worked at Time Magazine.

Gawker’s John Cook issued a call for the photo after The New Republic’s interview with co-founders John Harris and Jim VandeHei was published earlier this week.

“Our hope is that the photo above will help readers understand, holistically, how a crucial component of the Washington, D.C., media environment operates,” Cook wrote.

Indeed. It was just last earlier this month we were writing about Politico’s Jonathan Martin, who has a bit of a hoarding problem of his own. Judging by these pictures though, Allen could bury him—literally.
