Highlights from 7.27.14 Sunday Shows

Hillary Clinton on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS” answering what Vladimir Putin is ‘like as a man’ : “Well, he’s very tough. He’s a very arrogant person to deal with, which I think is a combination of this vision of Russia and some fundamental insecurity because when you are dealing with him, he often acts as though he couldn’t care less, he’s not interested, even talking with him about getting Russia into the World Trade Organization which is something the Obama administration was determined to do because we want to have a rules based order in so far as possible.”

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright on President Putin on CBS’s “Face the Nation” : “I think that Putin is living in his own world.  He has made up an awful lot of lies in terms of who is responsible for the fact that the Soviet Union disintegrated. He actually called that the greatest disaster of the 2oth century. Hard to believe, when there were two world wars that killed millions of people; among them, Russians. So that’s the first lie. And then he has, in fact, propagandized all that to his own country, and then into central and Eastern Europe. I think what he wants to do is to reestablish himself as the identification of Russian nationalism. And then also to do everything he can to kind of reestablish something akin to the Soviet Union, obviously not that, but a grouping of countries around Russia that are completely subservient to him and to Moscow. And until he can get that, he’s going to work to destabilize Eastern Europe.”

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on NBC’s “Meet the Press” : If you had 2,500 rockets falling on your cities, if you had terror tunnels dug underneath your border to reach your kindergarten, if you had attacks by land, by sea, and by air, of course  take action. You take action, you take military action aplenty. I have no doubt that you would. So does Israel.” Read more

Sarah Palin Launches Channel to Explore ‘Important issues facing the nation’

Sarah Palin over the weekend announced a new project she’s launching – “The Sarah Palin Channel” – to explore “important issues facing the nation,” part of the TAPP network.

“I want to talk directly to you on our channel, on my terms — and no need to please the powers that be,” she explains in a video promo for the channel. “Together, we’ll go beyond the sound bites and cut through the media’s politically correct filter.”

Most of the channel is members only, at the rate of $9.95 a month or $99.95 for a year. In the site’s FAQ’s under ‘Is the Channel members only?’ it answers: “Yes, we have launched our video channel looking for the support of our community through subscriptions. We also feel that the community would feel more secure knowing everyone watching, uploading videos, and participating in the discussions and video chats was a contributing member and not anonymous,” aka it’s viewer funded but we’ll act like having people pay $10 a month via credit card actually makes it “feel more secure.”

Memo From BuzzFeed EiC Ben Smith – ‘We’ve decided to let Benny Johnson go’

BuzzFeedLogoA note to editorial staff sent Friday evening from BuzzFeed editor-in-chief Ben Smith announced that the website has parted ways with Benny Johnson – a viral politics editor – after identifying “40 instances of sentences or phrases copied, word for word, from other sites, many of them inappropriate sources in the first place.”

On Thursday, a WordPress titled “Our Bad Media” highlighted several accusations, later reported by Gawker. On Friday, several more instances were raised on the WordPress, prompting Smith to tell Poynter that BuzzFeed was currently reviewing Johnson’s work.

The below memo was shared with Fishbowl by BuzzFeed publicist Ashley McCollum.

Also, “Editor’s Note: An Apology To Our Readers,” from Smith.

‘This Week’ EP Jonathan Greenberger Joins Mike Allen at POLITICO’s ‘Open Mike’

In the most recent installment of POLITICO’s “Open Mike” series, Playbook editor Mike Allen sat down with ABC’s “This Week” executive producer Jonathan Greenberger to discuss how the format of “This Week” has changed and how Greenberger ‘imagines’ the ‘viewer.’

“On some level, I imagine my parents,” answered Greenberger. “I grew up in Columbus, Ohio. My parents are still back there. They’re busy during the week and I know they care a lot about the news but I also know during the week, they don’t have a lot of time to invest in the news. So on Sunday morning when it’s a quiet time in the week, they can put on an extra pot of coffee and be a little reflective.”

BuzzFeed’s Ben Smith Reviewing Editor’s Work Amid Plagiarism Accusations

BuzzFeedLogoOn Thursday, Washington and national media hit the ground running amid accusations that BuzzFeed viral politics editor Benny Johnson plagiarized writings.

Gawker report was based on a WordPress dedicated to the accusations titled “Our Bad Media” and included an email from BuzzFeed editor-in-chief Ben Smith to Gawker defending Johnson’s work.

In the email, Smith said, “We’re grateful to @blippoblappo and @crushingbort for pointing out these serious failures to properly attribute two quotations and to credit a source in a third post. We’ve corrected the posts…Benny Johnson is one of the web’s deeply original writers, as is clear from his body of work.”

Since yesterday’s initial post to “Our Bad Media,” several more instances were raised on the site. Smith today told Poynter that BuzzFeed is currently reviewing the viral editor’s work, describing a post with “three serious instances of plagiarism.”
