Is it War? FP‘s Morning Brief Vs. Playbook

Last week FishbowlDC reported on remarks in an internal memo to Foreign Policy magazine staff. In it, Editor Susan Glasser joked that Politico‘s Mike Allen and his Playbook’s pre-fame 30,000 had nothing on “Morning Brief,” the magazine’s a.m. e-mail that goes to 50,000 subscribers.

FP might want to update their memo. Politico says Allen’s post-fame following is 60,0000, which does not include the 18,000 who have downloaded his app on the iPad. As for the 60,000, the 60,000 is a jump from a year ago, when Playbook’s reader count was 30,000.
