Why Isn’t TBD As Successful as Politico?

During Monday’s class, we didn’t have a chance to talk about TBD, the local-news site started by Allbritton to compete with The Washington Post. When it launched, some people thought it would cover metropolitan Washington as successfully as Politico covers politics.

But it turns out their strategy hasn’t worked out as well as Allbritton hoped.

What do you think of TBD’s new strategy? And why hasn’t TBD been as successful as Politico?
