Editing a New Magazine? What Kind of Stories Are You Going to Do?

Politico, the DC-based website and newspaper that covers politics and government, is starting a glossy magazine this fall—it’ll come out six times a year and be edited by Susan Glasser, who appeared this morning on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” to promote it.

In a short segment on “The Rebirth of Longform Journalism,” the show’s host, Frank Sesno, first asked Glasser about her plans for the new magazine and she said she wanted it to be something “truly original.”
