Politico brass has to be grinning ear to ear today as a new survey has them clobbering many other publications on Capitol Hill.
“POLITICO ranks No. 1 among Capitol Hill publications, both in print and online, in the latest Erdos & Morgan survey of congressional and executive branch opinion leaders,” a morning release from Politico states. “The survey, released Thursday, shows POLITICO ahead of Congressional Quarterly, The Hill, National Journal and Roll Call in terms of which publication these influentials read and visit the most.”
“Politico’s mission is to provide political and policy professionals the agenda-setting breaking news and smart, timely analysis they need to do their jobs,” said Chief Operating Officer Kim Kingsley. “Ranking so high in this well-respected survey proves that we’ve been successful in that mission.”
Politico Pro Editor-in-Chief Tim Grieve (voted in FBDC’s Summer Superlatives as having the biggest temper in D.C.) also gushed on the matter in a canned quote that really isn’t worth reading but we’ll give it to you anyway…He said, “Politico is dedicated to relentlessly covering the key issues affecting everyday government decisions. With unmatched teams of journalists focused on individual policy areas, our goal is to deliver the insight policy professionals need to be effective.”
