David Gregory Moderates Yesterday’s No Labels National Ideas Meeting

Former “Meet the Press” host David Gregory yesterday moderated a discussion at the No Labels National Ideas Meeting, with honorary co-chairs Gov. Jon Huntsman and Sen. Joe Manchin.

On the topic of media coverage in Washington, Gregory said, “Sometimes it is an over-simplification to talk about the speed of the news cycle — that is part of the problem. What it is is the attachment to narrative…In Washington political journalism the narrative gets set early and then its built on. Things that fight the narrative get harder to report out, often because of laziness in the media.”

Susan Glasser of Being Named POLITICO Editor: ‘I am honored and totally blown away’

Susan Glasser, who early Thursday morning was named editor of POLITICO, followed up on a memo to staff issued by the Rosslyn-based political news outlet’s CEO Jim VandeHei, editor-in-chief John Harris, and COO Kim Kingsley.

“I want to say that I am honored and totally blown away by the opportunity to become POLITICO’s Editor,” writes Glasser to staff. “There is an inspiring and clear vision for the next stage of POLITICO’s growth, both here in Washington and far far beyond the Beltway in Brussels and elsewhere, and it’s going to be a big and engaging project to support it.”

Susan Glasser has been named editor of POLITICO, according to a memo issued this morning from the Rosslyn-based political news outlet’s CEO Jim VandeHei, editor-in-chief John Harris, and COO Kim Kingsley.

“Susan is among the smartest, most innovative and creative editors around,” write VanDeHei, Harris, and Kingsley.

The memo says that she will soon name an executive editor, the position of Rick Berke, who announced his resignation earlier this month.

“Our challenge is to extend our dominance in this space and expand our reach − in Washington, key states and the world,” add VanDeHei, Harris, and Kingsley. ”That is why we are redesigning our digital properties, redoing all of our technology, expanding into Europe, exploring new state versions of POLITICO and growing our operation and leadership here.”

Glasser, who joined POLITICO Magazine as editor in late 2013, worked for years with VandeHei, Harris, and Kingsley at The Washington Post, prior to her forced departure in 2008.
