A White House reporter used the made-for-SNL-word “strategery” in a question posed to press secretary Robert Gibbs at yesterday’s briefing. Funny man Gibbs, referring to the SNL newbie who dropped the F bomb this weekend, joked, “I’m going to curse in a minute.” (h/t HuffPost)

Where did the month of September go? What we know and what we’re reading this Wednesday morning…

TV | RADIO | ONLINE | BOOKS | NEWS NOTES

TV

Missing the Joe of “Morning Joe?” Joe Scarborough has apparently been recovering from sinus surgery this week.

Fortune‘s profile of Charlie Rose.

CNN’s John Roberts has an awkward moment with former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.

In “Hollywood” news… HBO’s “Big Love” has been filming in DC– Bill Paxton and Chloe Sevigny have been spotted shooting at Union Station, outside the White House and in Dupont Circle. Jon got the boot from TLC’s “Jon and Kate Plus Eight.” And the “Real Housewives” have no idea who Nancy Pelosi is.

RADIO

NPR’s Vivian Schiller profiled by More.

Barbara Walters interviewed Arianna Huffington on her SIRIUS XM radio show. An excerpt from Arianna: “I’m fine to be called a liberal. My problem is that with the analysis that sees everything is divided as right versus left. When you have major alliances among people who are liberals, people are who are conservatives agreeing on things like reforming Wall Street, on things like not escalating in Afghanistan, on things like providing healthcare for the uninsured. Because many people in business know that they have to carry the cost, and it’s weighing down their businesses.”

ONLINE

TWT‘s Christina Bellantoni: A Facebook poll asking whether President Obama should be assassinated has sparked an Internet uproar – with new polls calling for the offending poll creator’s arrest and other social-networking sites questioning their policies amid an unprecedented level of online vitriol.

Daily Candy (which we LOVE) has unveiled a new look.

BOOKS

The e-book of Sarah Palin’s “Going Rogue” has been delayed by the publisher to apparently stress hardcover sales.

John Dickerson: Sarah Palin took the name of her memoir from this (unflattering) Slate article.

And apparently, David Letterman has an advance copy of Palin’s memoir. (h/t Wake Up Call)

NEWS NOTES

NYT‘s executive editor Bill Keller on pay model in NYO: “In the end, I think it will come down to a gut call about what we think the audience will accept and how we think the market will evolve…Everybody wants it to be a well-informed, well-considered gut call, but it’s a gut call.”

Dan Rather‘s case against CBS has been dismissed.
