Politico Pro Loses Editor To Bloomberg

What techy would flee to Bloomberg on the heels of recent layoffs?

Politico Pro Technology Editor Elizabeth Wasserman, that’s who. Politico‘s Keith Perine also left Politico this month for Bloomberg. The upshot for Bloomberg? Wasserman knows the industry inside and out and has the sources to show for it. “All I know is they threw a lot of money at her,” a media source tells us.

Before Politico, she worked for The Post Standard, the Orlando Sentinel, Long Island’s Newsday, and the San Jose Mercury News during the dot-com boom.

Regards to her dog, Snoopy. Sorry, Snoopy, her hours won’t be any better at Bloomberg.

See Wasserman’s goodbye note in which she notes Bloomberg made her an offer she couldn’t refuse…

CQ Roll Call Shows Reporter the Door

In some newsrooms it’s the new law of the land. If you’re going to work for a competitor, you’re told to pack your things and get out on the very day you resign.

Such was the case with Keith Perine, an employee for CQ Roll Call until yesterday, when he resigned. He begins his new job as Deputy Tech Editor for Politico Pro tomorrow.

CQ Roll Call is not notorious for this treatment. While they would not comment on Perine’s exact situation, we know that many other reporters who have left the publication are not immediately asked to leave. For instance, Christina Bellantoni, who recently left for PBS, spent at least two weeks at Roll Call before departing. Others have spent even longer time there after they’ve resigned.

CQ Roll Call Hosts Dark Sounding Event

“Finite Spectrum Infinite Demand” is not the name of a conference. It’s a Black Sabbath album. Or at least it should be.

On Wednesday CQ Roll Call is teaming up with LightSquared, Information Technology  and Innovation Foundation to host an forum on wireless demands.  WHAT: “CQ Roll Call’s veteran technology reporter Keith Perine will moderate a panel discussion with some of the most knowledgeable and influential government and industry officials at the epicenter of this issue. WHO: “Congressional leaders, academics and industry stakeholders. Newsmaker interviews led by CQ Roll Call’s Editorial Director Mike Mills. Speakers and panelists include: Rob Atkinson, The Information Technology & Innovation Foundation; Congressman Cliff Stearns; Rebecca Murphy Thompson, Rural Cellular Association; Former Congressman Rick Boucher, Internet Innovation Alliance; Harold Feld, Public Knowledge; Rick Kaplan, FCC; and Chris Riley, Free Press.”

The event will take place at The Columbus Club at Union Station from 8 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. It’s free, but registration is required. Sign up here.

CQ Weekly: The Cover

In this week’s CQ Weekly cover story, “So Much for Super,” reporter Joseph Schatz explains what happens after the collapse of the Supercommittee and suggests the bad blood between the parties could make for even more infighting in Congress. Also: CQ‘s Keith Perine reports on the Supreme Court considering if fining for foul language makes sense in the age of cable and the internet. Look for the full story later this week online.

An excerpt: So the deficit committee may be out of business. But its conflicts will live on, possibly more inflamed than before, reinforcing the public perception that Congress is hopelessly dysfunctional. “That will define this next year, I believe, in this country,” Sen. John Kerry, a Massachusetts Democrat and panel member, said after he led last-minute discussions aimed at reaching a deal on taxes. “This fight just begins, because now, we’re going to hold people accountable.” …“The failure of the supercommittee means it is time for the real committee — Congress — to act. Congress cannot delegate hard decisions any longer,” added Republican Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, a deficit hawk who was not part of the talks.
