Richard Wolffe Leaving Public Strategies To Write Obama Book

That was quick. After joining PR/lobbying firm Public Strategies in April, longtime Newsweek White House correspondent and MSNBC analyst Richard Wolffe is leaving the firm to write another book about President Barack Obama.

MSNBC was criticized this past August for continuing to book Wolffe as an analyst and not disclosing that he worked for a PR firm. MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann said Wolffe would no longer appear on his show, although he returned several months later.

“I have nothing but good things to say about [Public Strategies], but the chance of writing a White House book was the opportunity of a lifetime,” Wolffe told the Washington Post.
