Congratulations to “Meet the Press” executive producer Betsy Fischer and Politico senior writer Jonathan Martin, who married over the weekend in Virginia. Politico’s Mike Allen officiated the ceremony, and gave the couple a generous shout-out in “Playbook.”

According to “Playbook,” former NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw toasted the couple, who were engaged in October, 2011:

“I have been thinking about this union of these two most powerful organizations in American political journalism. It’s … as if a member of the Gotti family married a member of the Gambino family. Jonathan, … the bad news is that I think – I’m counting on this – that David Gregory will now start to impersonate YOU at parties instead of me.
