QUOTES of the DAY

Reporter calls for an American leader

“America needs a leader so badly. Right now, she doesn’t have one.” — The Daily Caller‘s incredibly patriotic reporter Matthew Boyle. Can a reporter ever just be a reporter? Since when is Boyle an op-ed columnist?

From the Dept. of Bragiculture…“Got to make a call on Air Force One today, connected by an operator. The little things in life.” — The Hill‘s White House Correspondent Amie Parnes in a comical humblebrag. Oh, is that where she is?

On a serious note…

“Our @ABC correspondents @LamaHasan @JeffreyKofman are in North Africa this morning as crisis heats up. Good luck-stay safe.” — ABC News Prez Ben Sherwood.

Run Caitlin run!

“Just ran from Arlington to the base of the Capitol. I feel like Forrest Gump.” — Politico Pro Web Producer Caitlin Emma.

The Media Critic

“How do people who have hard jobs watch cable news when they come home at night? I just watched a minute of Hannity and want a nap.” — Former Mediaite writer Frances Martel.

The Media Critic II

“Watching cable news tonight (first time in 8-9 months). After 20 mins, click (sound of remote turning off).” — Paul Brandus, an independent White House correspondent who writes West Wing Report.

Harsh: Journo should’ve been aborted?

“Oddest email response to my column criticizing media reax to Romney on Egypt? Man says my mom should have aborted me for supporting Obama.” — Washington Examiner op-ed writer Philip Klein.

From the reporter’s chair: “Things you see at 9pm votes: Sen Baucus in a tux #Senate” — NBC News Senate producer Libby Leist.

Production supervisor’s dog gets hysterical over TV ding

“The ‘ding’ in the new Google Chrome commercial is driving my dog hysterically bonkers. He is growling at the TV. #mydoghatesyou.” — Doug Zimmerman, production supervisor for Environment & Energy TV’s web programming.
