Morning Reading List: 1.25.11

* The Daily Beast‘s Lloyd Grove apparently thinks it’s stupid and unrealistic to sign on to WaPo Dana Milbank‘s call for a Sarah Palin media blackout for February. So does WaPo‘s Jonathan Capehart. Grove tells The Daily Caller‘s Jeff Winkler as much in a story published today in which the New York reporter explains his own blackout of Paris Hilton. Winkler, on this ride of elaborate addiction metaphors, writes, “Grove  – who may be the most honest journalist willing to be quoted by another journalist about his old quotes concerning journalistic dishonesty for a story regarding a current journalists’ integrity — told TheDC that he still stands by his Hilton blackout as “just a craven bid for publicity.”” Quote: “What Dana does is up to him. But this is not a case of as Dana Milbank goes, so goes the rest the lamestream media.” Read the story here.

* Aaron Barnhart of The Kansas City Star thinks he knows when the real beginning of the end began between Keith Olbermann and MSNBC. It involved another gargantuan personality at the network: Chris Matthews. He writes, “It was the summer of 2008. MSNBC thought it would be a great idea to have KO and Chris Matthews co-anchor MSNBC’s convention coverage. But…once the live cameras started to roll two things became clear: One, it was hard to adjust to KO sitting in the Tom Brokaw chair, trying to be objective and all; and two, Olbermann and Matthews should never, ever, EVER work that closely together again.” Read the story here.

* Today Keith Koffler, editor of WhiteHouseDossier.com, offers a parody of sorts of tonight’s SOTU. He warns readers it’s “so touching” and could make them weep. A mention that won’t surprise you: House Speaker John Boehner crying. And mentions that might startle you: Former Sen. Bill First performing a lobotomy on Keith Olbermann and two Supreme Court Justices “tongue kissing.” Read the full list here.
