Sense of humor alone varies wildly across the continent, Digiday says.

Post-Mike Allen, Politico Remakes Playbook for a Social Media Landscape (Digiday)

Politico Playbook is remaking itself for smartphones and social media — without its biggest name. Digiday reports that Politico is losing its star contributor, Mike Allen, who for nearly 10 years pumped out Playbook, Politico’s lucrative newsletter that provides a daily dose of scoops and personality bits to more than 100,000 political insiders. Now, he’s leaving with Politico CEO Jim VandeHei and other executives to start a new political publication, Digiday says.
