From VandeHarris to Reporters With Love

Politico’s VandeHarris sent out a short but sweet note of praise to their reporters this morning at 7:46 a.m. thanking them for “working deep into the night for too many days to count” on the budget showdown.

The email’s subject line is: Our own budget deal…

See the internal memo…

We all owe a big thank you to the editors, reporters, copy team, web producers, and the video and media squads who have worked deep into the night for too many days to count to put together the best budget coverage around.‬

Our work on this important policy fight has been fast, sweeping and dominant. The Columbia Journalism Review praised our budget reporting chief David Rogers for owning this story like no other – the same should be said for the entire squad working with him (so we’re saying it).

Thanks to all.
