Politico’s Managing Editor Bill Nichols sent out a praiseworthy internal memo this morning with lots of kisses. SWAK. SWAK. SWAK. For starters, Breaking News team editor Gregg Birnbaum gets a huge round of applause from top brass not to mention a promotion. Well, of course that depends on what you think a promotion is.

Charles Manson Dylan Byers on his media coverage and will become Deputy Managing Editor as they bring on a deputy for the Breaking News team.
