Extra! Extra! Politico.com launches next week...

By None:

It promises to be a stunning new addition to the media mix covering politics. The Politico will be a 24/7 website, a TV show (online and in DC only), and Tuesday-to-Thursday newspaper in DC.

The Politico is the first true multi-platform news source for the politically-active. We will offer an incomparable opportunity for stakeholders to harness the power of the only multi-media source devoted to reaching the nation’s most important minds. We will cater to the demands of the 24-hour political news consumer. It will be our readers’ job to digest our news, but it won’t be ‘work.’
