I’ve complained many times about Politico’s lack of visuals including in the Round Table discussion. However after doing more research, I recently discovered that Politico Pro, a subscription based part of the site, offers a DataPoint section.
Now of course you have to be a member to access the DataPoint section (I filled information out and they said they would call me) but after looking around it seems like an awesome aspect of Politico’s site.
So under the ‘Federal’ tab of Politico Pro, they offer DataPoint as a way to access the information.
Here’s what the DataPoint section looks like:
Even though I couldn’t access the content, I could tell that this section of Politico does an amazing job of using data. It’s innovative and creative. And looks to be really in depth. It’s a great way to cover news.
I wish the rest of the site offered more opportunities to read articles with data that didn’t require cost and a membership. But the DataPoint looks really cool.
