Politico Just Hired A Democrat Donor As Their CEO


The political news internet is buzzing with news that Politico has hired new CEO Patrick Steel, a well-known banker at D.C.-area investment firm FBR and Co. 

However, you probably won't find many journalists talking about how Politico's new CEO can hardly be called objective. As OpenSecrets.org seems to indicate, Patrick Steel has donated north of $60,000 to Democrat causes and candidates since 2000. He doesn't appear to have made any donations to groups or candidates on the other side of the aisle.

Especially ironic about all of this is the fact that Politico recently released an article called. "The Media Bubble Is Worse Than You Think." While this doesn't necessarily correlate to a definitely left-learning bent on Politico's reporting, it does give pause to readers looking to the organization for "objective" reporting.
