Controlling the shakes

“I’ve been chugging soda all day to cover up for me shaking. Keep my name out of this.” — A media insider afraid of being exposed.

Seoul humor

“Goodbye @jaketapper – with all of us gone, hope your last night isn’t iseoulating.” — MSNBC’s Daily Rundown co-host Savannah Guthrie in a Friday morning tweet from POTUS’s Indonesia trip in reference to ABC News’s White House correspondent Jake Tapper. Tapper remarked, “SavannahGuthrie all these horrific Asian puns are just a Sino the times, I guess.”

The weakness of PR: Content

“Just got e-mail from PR firm with subject line: “Ladies…Hate Pumping Gas?? We Can Help!!” Actual content goes downhill from there.” — Washington City Paper‘s Managing Editor Mike Madden in a Thursday tweet.

Weigel interviews Google nemesis

“Finally had occasion to interview Lori Weigel, pollster who dabbles in complicating my Google alerts.” — Slate‘s insatiable Dave Weigel in a Thursday tweet.

Immediate reaction

“What an ass.” — A reporter who shall remain nameless having learned that another outlet trashed that reporter.
