In an article by Jeremy Peters today the New York Times looks into the burnout rate of reporters for online news outlets – most specifically, Politico.
Peters talks to Jim VandeHei and John Harris who disclaim the notion that Politico is sweatshop but don’t deny tales of VandeHei pacing between desks while questioning which reporters have recently broken news.
Peters also checks in with former Politico reporters Helena Andrews who refers to the outfit as “boot camp” and Anne Schroeder Mullins who shares the story of co-workers frazzled by an April Fool’s joke that may have hit too close to home. Check it out here.
