Politico.com is a website and news service that reports political news. Some critics have claimed that Politico has a conservative/Republican bias. The Politico nickname of “Republico” has been cited in print since at least August 2007.
Another Politico nickname is “Pervertico”—coined by conservative radio talk show host Mark Levin, who believes that Politico is too liberal. Politico has also been nicknamed “Politiho” (politico + ho/whore).
