Sex In Politico’s Newsroom? ‘Gross, Dude’

If there wasn’t a big soccer match going on Thursday in Brazil, we might have confused Politico‘s newsroom for a scene slightly resembling an orgy.

Politico‘s serial tweeter Blake Hounshell, who seriously spends the bulk of existence tweeting (so much so that it wouldn’t be surprising to learn that he’s finally installed a pocket catheter to give him more time), revealed the sounds coming out of his newsroom.

It was The Guardian‘s U.S. National Security editor Spencer Ackerman who pointed out how gross he sounded.

On the other hand, this is how many Washington newsrooms sounded yesterday with the USA-Germany soccer match, killing any and all work productivity for much of the afternoon.
