Michael White writes in this month’s Vanity Fair about the Politico Web site as the answer to who will continue reporting after traditional journalism’s demise. Not only has Politico revived political journalism by tenaciously covering Washington after the investigative stillness of the Bush years, but it was also started by former reporters from the paper that brought us Watergate. It continues to draw incredible web traffic (over 3.8 million people per month), even months after the presidential election it was created to cover. Not bad for a site that draws a large portion of its profit from its print version.
