Robin Reid Leaves The Politico

FishbowlDC has obtained the following email from Senior Editor Robin Reid:

    Subject: time to part

    Hello lobbying team,

    Because of philosophical differences, next week will be my last at The Politico. I’ve got some other projects to pursue.

    I think the world of you and chose to stick around another week for that reason. (Hey, couldn’t miss one more round of Suite Talks, Matchups, Pitboss and This Day!)

    I’m sure that you’ll be in very good hands, thanks in no small part to Jeanne’s lobbying expertise and Andy’s editing skills, (which hopefully he’ll get to exercise more along with his knee).

    Speaking of knees, I’ll be at home healing mine a bit Thursday if you need me.

    Best, Robin

Word around the company is that everyone on board now has made the final cut for a Fall that will see the unveiling of several new Politico products (as we noted earlier, sources also claim that up to a dozen more hires are expected).

You’ll note that Reid is the first non-Marty Tolchin hire to part ways with the paper.

It was not planned.’” Ah, wasn’t he asked the question by Joe Scarborough, the MSNBC talker and former Congressman from Florida, and not Chuck Scarborough, the longtime NYC anchorman at WNBC-TV in NYC? Hmmm…..
