Ryan Lizza Spends the Night With Politico

Last night, according to TV spies, The New Yorker‘s Ryan Lizza spent the night hanging out in Politico‘s newsroom as they did their livestream show. He observed backstage production and pestered politicos with lots of questions. He was dedicated. The date went long. He started at 6 p.m. and stayed until the end, which was 11:30ish.

So…presumably, Lizza was preparing for a piece on the show?

We reached out to Lizza for comment. As most reporters know, revealing too many details on upcoming stories is a serious no-no. “‘Spending the night with Politico‘ sounds so risqué!” he wrote FishbowlDC. “It was strictly platonic, I assure you. Probably shouldn’t say more than that, but nothing earth-shattering is in the works.”
