Awkward Exchange Closes Out White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest’s First Briefing

Screen Shot 2014-06-23 at 23.18.23On Josh Earnest‘s first day as White House Press Secretary, members of the White House Press Corps accused the newly minted press secretary of offering “a buried nugget of news” and encouraging him to answer a question posed earlier in the briefing.

Before a short back and forth with Real Clear Politics’ Alexis Simendinger, Earnest said, “Alexis, you don’t have to get all exercised about this,” later ending the exchange with “OK. Thanks everybody.”

In case you missed it, check it out, after the jump. Fast forward to 1:01:20 and stay through the end, when the room offers a bit of laughter. Read more

Sunday Morning Panels: Only Males Need Apply

Hide the toddlers. We’re counting up the number of trouser snakes on the Sunday morning political talk show panels again this week and the picture is actually significantly hopeful. Program note: CNN’s “State of the Union” with Candy Crowley is pre-empting Howie’s “Reliable Sources” so that program will not be included in our weekly roundup. MSNBC’s Chris Matthews has a panel that’s 50 percent female as usual. Enjoy!

NBC’s “Meet the Press”: 1

This week NBC’s “MTP” is broken into three segments. The First is Herman Cain, then Gov.’s Bobby Jindal and Tim Pawlenty and finally NBC’s Chuck Todd and BBC’s Katty Kay. We’re considering the last panel as the one to most comparably count.

ABC’s “This Week”: 2

ABC’s Jonathan Karl, Ruth Marcus, WaPo, GOP pundit Mary Matalin, WaPo‘s George Will

CBS’s “Face the Nation”: 2

Norah O’Donnell, CBS News Chief White House Correspondent
John Dickerson, CBS News Political Analyst
Julianna Goldman, White House Correspondent, Bloomberg Television

(Also significant to note that Sharyl Attkisson, CBS News Investigative Correspondent, will be a guest.)

FNC’s “Fox News Sunday”: Proudly blacklisted by Fox News PR since June 2010. We’ll update this when we hunt it down.

Good Morning FishbowlDC Readers

Quotes of the Day


Goff admits to major coffee drinking

“DC ranks 6th city that drinks the most #coffee accord to Bundle.com. I alone prob acct for half the city #fillherup.” — NBC Washington anchor Angie Goff.

Is Real Clear Politics Taking Washington by storm?

“Real Clear Politics…which is the vastly escalating website of political writing that is really taking over Washington. Everybody seems to read it.” — WETA “White House Chronicle Host” and syndicated columnist Llewellyn King while introducing White House Correspondent Alexis Simendinger to the program this weekend.

Baratunde breaks down over overhead bin mishap

“Been 10 mins since we were booted from our flight because jackass broke the overhead. Amazingly, he’s still alive #GateCheckGate #mobrage” — Director of Digital for The Onion Barantunde Thurston, who was stuck in the Louisville airport over the weekend. “Jackass forced his bag into overhead, breaking the unit and forcing a delay on our flight. #selfish #finishhim!” See the busted overhead bin here.

D. Shuster’s fan club (of sorts)

“David Shuster looked yummy on CNN today… even more delicious given how he ripped Fox News debate moderators for their stupidity.  Me likey!” — Anonymous reader to FishbowlDC.

Ezzy offers lunch. Down with Herman Cain!

“If Herman Cain ends this primary with more than 10 percent of the vote, I will buy everyone on this panel lunch. It will not happen.” — WaPo‘s Ezra Klein on fellow Boybander Chris Hayes‘s “Up with Hayes” on Sunday morning on MSNBC. This was in reaction to Cain winning the Florida Straw Poll. Seems pizza would be a good choice here. Hazy replied, “We’re going to pick the nicest four-star restaurant.”

Hair cut alert…“Nooooo!” — The Daily Caller‘s Mary Katharine Ham to colleague Laura Donovan, who wrote: “OMG @cjciaramella cut his hair and beard!” So who is sending us a picture?? CJ Ciaramella is a relatively new hire. This picture is obviously pre-haircut.

Most insightful line of WaPo Date Lab. Josh: “We definitely hugged, I felt much closer to her after the date than before.” Josh, who will no doubt make a brilliant lawyer one day, and Natalie were strangers before the date.

RCP Claims a Boost in D.C. Presence

RealClearPolitics is proclaiming an expanded Washington presence. Today the company announced that Meg Szabo is joining the team in the newly-created position of Marketing Director in Washington DC.  Szabo joins RealClearPolitics from the National Journal Group where she was the Senior Manager of Brand Marketing.

RealClearPolitics reports that it has continued to grow its editorial staff as the site prepares for the presidential election year and cites hires from six months ago up to a few recent additions. In February, award-winning journalist Carl Cannon joined the company as Washington Editor. Shortly after Cannon’s hire, they brought on Alexis Simendinger as White House Correspondent. Also new to RealClearPolitics are Political Reporter Caitlin Huey-Burns and Assistant Editor Nicholas Hahn.

Dry quote from brass…“We’re excited to add Meg’s name to the list of top-notch professionals who’ve joined RealClearPolitics recently,” said Tom Bevan, co-founder and Executive Editor of RealClearPolitics. “We look forward to continuing to build our team of reporters, expand our exclusive coverage of politics and elections, and grow our presence inside Washington DC and all around the country.”
