Keach Hagey: POLITICO, Random House to Publish Digital Campaign
Random House and POLITICO will team up to produce a series of instant digital books that will tell the story of the 2012 presidential election in real time, with the kind of detail and color normally reserved for traditional post-election tell-all accounts.
The series of four books will be written by Mike Allen, POLITICO’s chief White House correspondent, and former Newsweek editor-at-large Evan Thomas, and edited by former Newsweek editor-in-chief Jon Meacham, who became executive editor and executive vice president at Random House last autumn after Newsweek was sold to Sidney Harman.
When will Mike Allen ever sleep?
And which 2012 campaign staffers will emerge as the next James Carville or George Stephanopoulos?
