Roll Call Asks Readers to Choose Upcoming Coverage

Roll Call

Have a suggestion for which House and Senate races Roll Call should cover in the run up to the midterm elections? Perfect! Because they have a poll for you to help guide their coverage.

“Unfortunately, there are still a few races we haven’t covered yet from the ground — and we’re running out of time,” writes Shira T. Center, Roll Call’s politics editor. ”We’d like help from you, our readers, to pick two of Roll Call’s final campaign stops this cycle.”

The outlet has asked readers to choose whether Alexis Levinson will cover the Senate race in Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, and North Carolina and if it’s sending Emily Cahn to California’s 52nd, Colorado’s 6th, Nebraska’s 2nd, New Jersey’s 3rd, New York’s 11th, or Minnesota’s 8th.

Interesting approach. Vote here.

Howard Kurtz and TMZ’s Harvey Levin’s Awkward Sunday Morning Exchange

Screen Shot 2014-09-15 at 10.04.32On yesterday’s “Media Buzz with Howard Kurtz” on FOX News Channel, TMZ founder Harvey Levin joined the program to discuss his network breaking stories as it did with video of Ray Rice’s domestic violence incident leading to his indefinite suspension by the NFL.

The conversation quickly turned tense after host Kurtz asked Levin, “How does TMZ get all these scoops?” Levin then pointed out, “We’re a news operation!”

Kurtz went on to ask if breaking stories like Rice helps to change TMZ’s image of being “a raunchy tabloid operation.” Levin quickly turned it around, noting that national interest and coverage of the story resulted from TMZ’s release of the surveillance video. Read more

Highlights from the 9.14.14 Sunday Shows

sunday-shows_304Secretary of State John Kerry on CBS’s “Face the Nation” : “This is a strategy coming together as the coalition comes together and the countries declare what they are prepared to do. But I want it to be absolutely clear out of this discussion we’re having that every single aspect of the president’s strategy, and what is needed to be done in order to accomplish our goal, has been offered by one country or multiple countries and all bases are covered.”

White House chief of staff Denis McDonough on ABC’s “This Week” : “We will be very candid with the American people, as the president has been. We will work very closely and consult with Congress on this effort. And we believe that we have the right strategy that the president laid out for the country on Wednesday night, to make sure that we degrade and ultimately defeat ISIL.” Read more
