According to a recent New York Times
magazine story, White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer
is most concerned with keeping contact with one journalist above all others: Mike Allen
Evidence? The last person Pfeiffer emails each night is Allen, who is also the first person he emails when he wakes each morning, the Times story notes.
Why? Because Allen's e-mail tipsheet, Playbook, "has become the principal early-morning document for an elite set of political and news-media thrivers and strivers," wrote reporter Mark Leibovich for the magazine.
According to the story, Allen grew up "apolitical" in Orange County's Seal Beach.
