A stunner from Rosslyn: Politico Executive Editor Rick Berke is leaving his post, he told staff in a note Sunday evening. The first paragraph of the memo is notable for its candor, something that’s often missing from resignation notes:
I have resigned as Executive Editor of Politico. While our overarching goals are similar, Jim, John and I have agreed to disagree over the strategy for achieving those goals. There is no acrimony and no drama – simply an acceptance by the three of us that the dynamics were just not there for us to function seamlessly.
