We’ve got your morning mix of media Muesli after the jump…
Most of you spent $300+ on Christmas gifts. Clifford Crittenden, Susan Roth and Kenny Day knew that yesterday’s picture was of The National Museum of the American Indian. The Daily Beast presents, “The Best Viral Videos of 2008″ and the “Best Video from All Over.” Gawker presents, “The 5 Types Of New Year’s Eve Parties.” Mixed Media asks, “Whither Bill Kristol? The Suspense Linger.” And FishbowlNY is, “Gazing Into the Kristol Ball.” Politico’s Playbook reports, “ENGAGED: Kyle Trygstad of Real Clear Politics, to long-time sweetheart Kelly Cannon, daughter of Carl Cannon, over the Christmas break. (Hat tip: Reid Wilson).” For Yeas & Nays, I take a look back on the year that was. Meredith Veira is 55. Matt Lauer is 51. Sean Hannity is 47. Check out today’s White House Photo of the Day from Time. Today’s “Angry Journalist” rant of the day: “My company — after months of telling staff we’re all safe — announce layoffs today despite every reassurance to the contrary. I’m pissed they were honest with us about our situation. I already know I’m safe, but I’m pissed for my friends. It’s not even up to our editors. It’s some bullshit corporate formula from people whoâ€™ve never spent a day in our newsroom.”
