Politico does something right

Politico, which suffered an exodus of reporters in recent months, has a coup today in hiring Darren Samuelsohn, currently of E&E, to cover energy.

Part of what makes many Politico articles bad is that most of the reporters are not experts in their topics, if they even have a topic. Rather, they cover 'politics'. This is a problem.

Politico previously hired Laura Rozen, an actual foreign policy expert, to cover foreign policy. And now there's Samuelsohn, who has covered energy/environment in DC for a long time. He knows what he's talking about, and that's good.
