Quick Reads: Matthews, Newseum, Google & West Wing Reportage

• MSNBC’s Chris Matthews took some heat for a comment he made during last night’s special coverage of Obama’s Afghanistan speech. He referred to West Point as “enemy camp” and Mediaite has more on the fallout.

• There are more cuts to report at the Newseum. From WaPo: “In the latest round of dismissals, which took place late last month, the Newseum eliminated 29 full-time positions, or 13 percent of personnel. It has now reduced its staff by 23 percent overall.”

NYT breaks down the most Googled politics of 2009. Politics Daily’s Emily Miller also notes lists for top Google searches of political figures are dominated by Dems, minus a big one– Obama.

• And some West Wing reportage… TWT: ‘Overexposed’ Obama beings to duck the WH press corps and AP: Promises, Promises, Friday is still WH ‘trash day.’
