We’ve got your morning mix of media Muesli after the jump…
It’s the birthday of Paul A. Volcker and John Danforth. We don’t want to say we called Fox’s big win in St. Paul, but well… Jack Shafer explains how Palin will beat the press. Nicole Wallace and Jay Carney go at it. For your Republican Convention coverage, you are watching MSNBC and reading Roll Call. Today’s “Angry Journalist” rant of the day: “I jumped ship as soon as I graduated. Earned my journalism degree in May 2008, started my PR job in August 2008. I am not ashamed.” “24/7 media glare means little Grand Old Partying.” Check out today’s White House Photo of the Day from Time. “From the Radio Right Comes an Amen Chorus for Palin.”
Today’s FishbowlDC comment of the day (with regards to yesterday’s post “Are Bloggers Being Treated Poorly At The RNC?“: Reader “thefrontpage” writes, “‘The food is bad?’ What does that mean? If anyone’s indicating free food — go out and buy your own damn food. Food is food — don’t complain about it. And since many ‘bloggers’ are not officially affiliated with a viable press organization, convention organizers have to be careful about randomly handing out credentials to just every person who says ‘I’m a blogger.’ Well, guess what? That could be 100,000 people. There are only so many media credentials that convention media officials can deal with — or officials at any function. So don’t complain, be happy that your are there at all — and buy your own food!” Keep the FishbowlDC discussion going by dropping your comments here.
