High-profile employees exit Politico

by | Jun 26, 2024

Three high-profile employees plan to leave Politico in the coming weeks: Alex Ward, above, “co-author of Politico’s massive scoop about the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, is leaving for The Wall Street Journal along with fellow Pentagon reporter Lara Seligman,” states a Semafor post.

Jack Shafer, the longtime Politico columnist, confirmed to Semafor that he is also leaving “amid the company’s waning interest in media coverage,” states a Semafor post.

“I had a really good run with a long leash at Politico and appreciate all the great people I worked with,” Shafer said. “But the job has changed in recent months and I think it’s best for me to hit the ground dancing someplace else where media criticism is important to the mix.”

Earlier this month, Sam Stein, a high-profile Washington editor, left for The Bulwark following publicly reported friction with Politico’s new management. Longtime congressional reporter Burgess Everett also announced he’s leaving the company.
