Cybersecurity Newest Focus Area of POLITICO Pro

Starting Wednesday, May 14, POLITICO Pro will expand its coverage to include Pro Cybersecurity, a tier dedicated to online security and privacy news. Pro Cybersecurity is the eleventh policy area offered by POLITICO Pro, which includes news dedicated to topics including campaigns, defense, and education, among others.

Pro Cybersecurity is expected to “detail changes in regulations, proposed legislation and other government activity on electricity grid security, the growing cost of data breaches, tensions between the private sector and government and U.S. Cyber Command — and what it all means for this exponentially expanding industry.”

It will be led by Shaun Waterman and include content from POLITICO’s Tal Kopan, NextGov’s Joseph Marks, and FierceMarkets’ David Perera.

Also on Wednesday, POLITICO will launch “Beyond the NSA,” a series exploring Big Data; privacy; and “the failed efforts to legislate and regulate rules for collecting, using, and selling data.”

Media Takes Sides on Zimmerman Decision

After continual media coverage of the George Zimmerman trial in the shooting of Trayvon Martin and more than 16 hours of deliberation by the jury, Zimmerman was acquitted of charges of second-degree murder and manslaughter over the weekend.

Since the shooting occurred last year, the case has been heavily followed by the media, with some outlets taking clear, strong stances. Now that the not-guilty verdict has been announced, some publications are being even more outspoken on the matter. We looked at a wide array of news organizations to analyze each publication’s own verdict of the case.

Politico Sets Right Wing On Fire With A Limbaugh Hates Fox News Piece

We’re not even sure where to begin with this one. Rush Limbaugh said something on his radio show and Politico’s Tal Kopan wrote a story about it. Normally that’d be the end of it.

But then Breitbart.com and Fox News got involved.

Politico says Limbaugh told a caller to stop watching Fox News because it’ll drive him crazy. Even though that sort of sounds just like what he was saying, Limbaugh insists he was only referring to the more liberal commentators on Fox News, not Fox News in its entirety. Even though he never actually said that specifically.

Morning Reading List 07.09.13.

Conservative editors team up against immigration bill — William Kristol and Rich Lowry have been at odds on immigration reform in the past. But today they’ve teamed up to write an opinion piece (click here to read it on Weekly Standard and here to read it on National Review) urging House Republicans to “kill the bill.” Kristol, editor of the Weekly Standard, has been in favor of reform while Lowry, editor of National Review, has been opposed. Nonetheless, the Gang of Eight bill recently passed by the Senate, has brought them together in explaining how there should be no urgency in passing reform. They argue that the bill is complex and was hastily passed without real examination of the real-world effects it would have. “If you think Obamacare and Dodd-Frank are going swimmingly, you’ll love the Gang of Eight bill,” they write.

Why you should read it: The team of Kristol and Lowry present a well-researched and thorough argument against the Gang of Eight bill as well as a look at where the GOP’s focus should be. Whether you’re for or against the bill, this piece is worth reading.

Do sex scandals matter anymore? — Mark Sanford. Anthony Weiner. And now Eliot Spitzer. Kevin Mahnken of TNR examines this year’s crop of out-of-the-ashes politicians who returned to the campaign trail in 2013 after falling from office at the hands of sex scandals, and what it means for sex scandals in politics going forward. No more is turning “hiking the Appalachian Trail” into an innuendo a political career-killer. And Weiner’s campaign seems to be going better than anyone imagined it would. With Spitzer’s announcement Sunday that he is running for New York City comptroller, which Mahnken notes is a “rather humble municipal office,” makes NYC the city that will determine whether voters care about sex scandals, even if they involve “a taste for expensive call girls,” as in Spitzer’s case. Mahnken also tries to tie the fact that politicians’ marital skills aren’t as important in elections to “the historical move away from laws prohibiting adultery, miscegenation, sodomy, gay marriage, and (probably, let’s face it) polygamy.”

Why you should read it: Do the words “sex scandal” mean anything to you? Mahnken’s piece focuses on three. It also raises an interesting point about redemption and the notion that politicians’ marital mistakes, however heinous and sometimes illegal, may not be an ultimate career-killer.
