    Interesting story about Politico:

    So how are they paying for all this? There's the undisclosed start-up nut from Allbritton Communications and the mostly free, 25,000-circulation newspaper in Washington, which--despite the Web site's high profile--accounts for 60% to 70% of revenues, VandeHei says, while not disclosing details. ...


    If all goes well, VandeHei says, the company could start turning a profit next year--with a lot of help from the print edition. The cachet of Internet cool is great, but Politico's business would fail if it were a Web-only company. "We need the newspaper," says VandeHei.
