Politico Pillages Mediabistro For Staff

patrick-gavin2.PNGFishbowlDC’s Patrick Gavin will be leaving Mediabistro.

This ‘secret’ memo is posted on Politico:

Gang,

We have finally found a way to stop all those leaks to Patrick Gavin over at FishbowlDC _ we’re bringing him to Politico. Gavin, of course, needs no introduction for most Politicos because you already know him, hang out with him, bump into him at parties or read his media and gossip scoops at Fishbowl or the Examiner. We think this is quite a coup.

It is no secret we want to dominate coverage of media and political gossip on Capitol Hill and around the town. Anne and Calderone are doing a damn good job of it already. Gavin’s new role will complement their work.

He will be doing most of his work with a video camera, turning it on this city’s most influential and famous politicos. He will hit the big parties, the green rooms and Capitol Hill for a mix of fun and serious looks at the people who matter most in politics and media. He will continue to do some writing, too. Gavin is a smart, entrepreneurial guy who has made himself essential reading to all of us. We are eager to watch him work his magic at Politico.

This memo will be leaked to Fishbowl, and we will have no idea how it appeared there.

How did we find this out? Trolling Twitter. Serious. What the hell Patrick?

“I know…I was sworn to secrecy.” He tells FBLA.
