The New Republic habla de Politico

La revista The New Republic publica este largo reportaje sobre Politico (algo a destiempo, ya que los días de gloria del sitio fueron antes de las elecciones). Entre otras cosas y detalles, la nota describe así la operación:
"Politico's model would be a hybrid, its ads coming largely from the print edition at first, with a growing source of revenue from Politico's website, which was to be updated constantly by a stable of well-known bloggers like Ben Smith and Jonathan Martin. Reporters' personalities and proclivities would be considered assets to be promoted, not hidden. And, for brand-name reporters, Politico was willing to pay stratospheric (by journalism standards) salaries. Top writers are rumored to make between $150,000 and $250,000. Last summer, Politico also signed some of their top talent to two-year contracts, according to sources."
