We created POLITICO with a simple promise: to prove there's a robust and profitable future for tough, fair and fun coverage of politics and government. To do this, we cling to a simple principle: always hire the most talented editors, reporters and newsroom staff and then set them loose on many platforms for modern media consumption: print, online, mobile, video and events.    

We break down the traditional journalistic conventions that make stories dull, predictable and often unreadable. Instead, while holding tightly to principles of fairness and accuracy, we have created a distinctive brand of journalism that drives the conversation—a conversation absolutely essential for readers and advertisers alike. We never lose sight of our most important audience—the political and government decision makers nationwide—and focus relentlessly on beating our competition to the big stories, emerging trends and sharpest analysis of Congress, the White House and public policy.

We never forget that complacency in the modern media is a deadly cancer. We constantly innovate, both in journalism and as a business proposition. In recent years, we have moved in and captured the dominant market position in providing subscriber-only information on the most important public policy debates with POLITICO Pro and hosting sponsored newsmaking events with the country's most powerful elected officials. 

But none of this works if we ever fall short of that initial promise of delivering nonpartisan news, fast, fair and first. We are proud that six years in, the passion to deliver exactly what readers and advertisers need burns more powerfully than ever.
