Editorial Reviews

Politico knows politics like no other news organization. Its newspaper and website are devoted to providing breaking news, insight and features that are anything but politics as usual. Politico's team is at the forefront, going beyond the basics of covering government and delving into the Oval Office, the halls of Capitol Hill and the hub of lobbying firms on K Street. Along with providing guest features from lawmakers and lobbyists alike, Politico showcases the work of renowned journalists, including Mike Allen, Jeanne Cummings, John F. Harris, Jonathan Martin, Roger Simon, Ben Smith and Jim VandeHei. With Politico on Kindle, you'll receive all of its featured content. The Kindle Edition of Politico contains articles found in the print edition, but will not include some images and tables. For your convenience, issues are automatically delivered wirelessly to your Kindle so you can read them each morning

The Politico is one of my favorite spots online for political news, and I like to pick up the free paper edition here in the DC metro area whenever I can. I was actually looking forward to supporting them with real money. Alas, it is not to be.

Like with so many other Kindle newspapers, my problem is not with the content but with the formatting. They're all needlessly mangled in one way or another, but Politico manages to do a worse job than all I've seen. One problem has to do with they way they convert hyperlinks in articles--sometimes the link text is replaced with a URL, and sometimes the link text is missing entirely. The end result is something like:

- This morning, President Obama signed the, which, according to House Democrats, should solve the ongoing .

Another fun touch, and I can't even offer a theory as to how this could happen, is that they randomly switch single and double quote marks, so you can't tell where internal quotes start and stop. Looks like this:

- Asked to elaborate on the Senator's comments, the staffer replied, 'He told me he knows "nothing beyond what's been revealed to the press,' so that's all I'll say."

I hope one day newspapers can get their acts together on Kindle. Here you have a captive audience who wants nothing more than to pay you real money for the digital content you're serving up free online, and you can't even hire an intern to write a decent script to convert that content to Kindle format.

4.0 out of 5 stars If in to Politics, not a bad choice March 4, 2009
I heard Politico was Left leaning, but I don't see it that way, and I'm Conservative. I find it pretty stright forward and interesting. It contains a good number of articles each day and some not found in the normal news.

As for the price.......Most of the Kindle Newspapers can be found free on the Net. Politico is no different. It's a Kindle thing. I like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of very few items thats WORTH the subscription October 9, 2009
In my humble opinion, POLITICO is one of very few journals/magazines out there that actually worth the buck. And it also one of the very few spots, where QUALITY journalism still prevails. How do I know? Well, I can read :| It's as simple as that.
I'm amazed by all the people who say that $6 a month (a MONTH, people!) is a price too high for quality journalism. Well, I beg to differ. .21c (divided by 28 days) per issue for a daily newspaper is nothing. A price of 2 cups of coffee (a month) for top-notch writing is tremendous value.

Another fascinating comment was the fact that everything could be read on-line. Well, if you consider following links and navigation through a web site reading: touché, I guess...

I'm not affiliated in any possible way with POLICITO, matter of fact TODAY was the first time I read their issue. I've always known about them, just never read them until I got a Kindle. Anyhow, I like writing, and quality writing I simply love. POLITICO is as good as it gets: build from a ground-up, full of wit and insights. A delight.

P.S. The only reason why I hate buying anything from Amazon is their saucy profit-sharing agreements, where they get the majority of money and the actual creators of books, journals, etc get less than half. Amazon, what exactly are you doing that entitles you for more than half of the proceeds?!

1.0 out of 5 stars Too Expensive for What You Get. January 20, 2009
Politico is an interesting blog, but it's not worth the price charged here on Amazon for the Kindle.
If it was priced in line with other blogs, perhaps $1.99 per month, then I'd buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but overwhelming December 15, 2013
By Mike
Verified Purchase
I bought a single copy of Politico just to get a taste of what it was all about. I'd heard of it often on radio programs and news quotes and wanted to check it out myself. What I found was very in-depth coverage on just about everything going on in the world. Much of it delves into the political sides of the issues and as such can sometimes seem overwhelming. If I had more time to read it, I think I would enjoy it more, but it is not a quick read publication. Therefore, if you're looking for a synopsis of the daily news, this is not it. If you want to explore the news in-depth, you might want to give it a try.

4.0 out of 5 stars Insightfully political, good price November 9, 2010
I find Politico is succinct, gives good political background, and is a fast read. The Washington Post provides good political analysis but you have to wade through local area issues. If your time is limited and you want to save money for other purchases (e.g. books) as well as keep up on politics, Politico is a prudent purchase. Allen Murphy

4.0 out of 5 stars If you like following politics, this is worthwhile September 9, 2009
I'm still in my trial period, but I plan to keep it. For $5.99, I can always get the latest on the political front, usually in more detail than I can find elsewhere.
