Tiger Beat On The Potomac

If you’re interested in reading a fleshy and long article about the detrimental affect Politico – or, as political commentary guru Charles Pierce calls it, Tiger Beat On The Potomac – has had on journalism and the entire political pundit class, not to mention the corrosive brand of journalism it practices, it doesn’t get much better than this. I have trouble imagining that Politico has as much influence and clout as this article suggests – on my list of reliable go-to news sources, it wouldn’t make the top ten – but the mediocre opinion I had of it dropped considerably lower.
