The Washington Post publisher Fred Ryan and executive editor Marty Baron today announced the creation of the Ben Bradlee Award to honor “the relentless and courageous pursuit of truth by an individual or team of Washington Post journalists,” as described in the announcement.

Ryan and Baron wrote in their announcement on Post PR:

“Over the past week, we have all been reflecting on the life and career of Ben Bradlee. What emerges most clearly in all the recollections – many of them highly colorful – has been the depth of Ben’s integrity and his commitment to discovering the truth.” Read more

ICYMI – Bloomberg Politics’ Look at Partisanship Among NFL Fan Bases

1406585455318Bloomberg Politics released the partisan findings of every NFL team’s fan base in collaboration with analytics firm Resonate.

Joshua Green writes in his latest piece “The NFL’s Most Republican and Democratic Fan Bases:”

“To measure the partisanship of a team’s fan base, Resonate looked at the stated party affiliation and vote propensity of people in congressional districts that lie within a team’s “designated market area”—essentially its local television market.”

“But, surprisingly, the stereotypical NFL fan is a bellowing, beer-drinking white male in a jersey and face paint—i.e., a Republican—yet the number of ‘Democratic’ teams exceeds the number of ‘Republican’ teams by almost 2-to-1.”

While the fan bases of NFL teams in Phoenix, Dallas, New Orleans, and Jacksonville, Fla. leaned Republican, those in Seattle, San Francisco/Oakland, Chicago, New York, and Miami were generally Democratic.

Fishbowl Five with the Washington Ideas Forum’s Steve Clemons and Margaret Carlson

Screen-Shot-2014-09-17-at-13.48.22Wednesday marks the start of The Atlantic’s sixth annual Washington Ideas Forum - in partnership with The Aspen Institute – an impressive gathering of some of the nation’s top minds on topics of national and international importance.

This year’s lineup includes Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases; Aspen Institute president and CEO Walter Isaacson on his forthcoming book The Innovators; co-founder and CEO of Vice Shane Smith; Revolution founder and partner Steve Case; United States Chief Technology Officer Megan Smith; Cornell University president David Skorton; Etsy CEO Chad Dickerson; Houston mayor Annise Parker; and more than five dozen others.

The two day event takes place Wednesday, October 29 and Thursday the 30 at the Harman Center for the Arts. In advance of the Forum, The Atlantic‘s Washington editor-at-large Steve Clemons and the Washington Ideas Forum (WIF) editorial director and Bloomberg View columnist Margaret Carlson completed a “Fishbowl Five” – or six – to preview what’s in store come later this week.

 

FishbowlDC: How will this year’s Forum differ than that of year’s past?

Clemons & Carlson: “More attendees. A lot more. New theater. Deeper dives and brilliant innovators outside DC showing paralyzed players inside DC what is possible. NASCAR and the New Orleans Saints. Popcorn.”

 

FishbowlDC: What makes WIF unique compared to similar conversations had inside and outside the Beltway?

Clemons & Carlson: ”Not all of the usual suspects. In our scrum we will hear how a guy selling glistening vegetables creates entire new neighborhoods (Whole Foods CEO Walter Robb) next to genomic sequencers (Craig Venter) and brain experts who are genuinely sculpting what it will mean to be human in the future. We are convening dramatic innovators in science, media, health and education from outside Washington to have a conversation with those inside DC. And very few get Susan Rice, John Kerry, Chuck Hagel, Anthony Fauci, Ernest Moniz and others from deep in a presidential administration to bat in the same ball game.” Read more
