We’ve got your morning mix of media Muesli after the jump…
Today’s the birthday of Serafin Gomez, Heather Smith and Peter Hamby (also: Sen. Jon Tester). Robert Scoble tweets, “Look at this photo. Do we need THAT many photographers taking photos?” Wonkette wants to start a blog war. Ouch: Harper’s new piece on Washington Post’s cash cow — Kaplan — is pretty tough. Don’t worry CNDavis, Roll Call got with the program. Forbes Traveler takes a look at “Select spots where Capitol Hill heavies dine and deal” and Gridskipper looks at “(Some of) the Best DC Bakeries”. Washingtonian’s Capital Comment features a “sit down with Capitol Hill Barbie for a little fashion and beauty 411.” Washington City Paper reports, “Why They Hate why.i.hate.dc” and why.i.hate.dc responds, resulting in yet another City Paper City Desk item. ProductDose.com provides a NPR map, to help you “locate up to 600 local public radio stations. So for your next road trip, it doesn’t have to be all talk radio and golden oldies.” Today’s “Angry Journalist” rant of the day: “I’m angry because the money sucks. I’m even angrier because our own bias has created this by driving half of our readership away.” Check out today’s White House Photo of the Day from Time.
Today’s FishbowlDC comment of the day (with regards to Tuesday’s post on “Hooker Ads: 3,500 And Counting“): Reader wcochran writes, “if it weren’t for hooker ads, I’d have no ads at all.” Keep the FishbowlDC discussion going by dropping your comments here.
