Glenn Thrush, Politico's Chief Political Correspondent, openly admits in an e-mail to John Podesta that he has become a "hack." Thrush forwards large portions of an upcoming article to Podesta; allowing the Hillary Clinton Campaign Chief an opportunity to tell the reporter if he "f**cked anything up."
Thrush knows he's violating multiple tenants of standard practices in journalism and goes so far as to ask Podesta to keep their exchange between the two of them.
Exit question: Is John Podesta at least being compensated for his exemplary efforts as an editor for Politico?
