This morning at approximately 9:30 we spotted Politico‘s Editor-in-Chief John Harris (a rather distant, unfriendly bloke in person), reporter Alexander Burns and Mike Allen in the luxurious Four Seasons dining room. They were all dressed meticulously in suits and ties. Allen scampered up the stairs after Burns and Harris, so unfortunately we didn’t get a chance to engage him in light banter. Other publication communications executives such as Beth Lester were spotted in the dining room. They were warm and smiled. When asked, Burns, who would only engage in friendly chatter with us when Harris wasn’t around, said they were there to meet with “Embassy” personnel. Whatever that means.
(Pssst…anyone know what they were really doing there? Write us at firstname.lastname@example.org or Betsy@mediabistro.com.)
