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.
The above animals are male Bighorn sheep.
