White House Staffers’ Emails Poke Fun at Politico

Apparently emails have been circulating amongst White House staffers in response to Politico‘s John Harris‘ piece Monday “7 stories Barack Obama doesn’t want told.”

The Atlantic‘s Marc Ambinder has this excerpt, though he warns, “don’t read too much into this. There’s been plenty of back-and-forth between the Whit House and the POLITICO, and the White House accepts the role — which is often substantial — that POLITICO plays in the newsgathering process.”

7 narratives politico is fighting in their efforts to get an interview with the President

1. They are more interested in readers than accuracy

2. Its okay to be wrong everyonce in a while, if your are the first to break the news

3. More interested in gossip than news

4. A spouter of the worst sort of insider conventional wisdom

5. Their analysis about obama has been wrong more than any one

6. Click … period

7. More obsessed with personality than policy

Typos and spelling errors above were in the email, not ours.
