Sunday Morning Show Quotes – 8.31.14

sunday-shows_304Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) on NBC’s “Meet the Press” with Andrea Mitchell on comments made by President Obama in January that ISIS is ‘the JV team’ : “Well, I think it’s wrong too. I think it’s a major varsity team, if you want to use those kinds of monikers. But I see nothing that compares with its viciousness. I’ve been on the intelligence committee now since before 9/11, and I’ve watched this evolution of non-state actors into world terror very carefully and closely.”

“And this is really the first group that has the wherewithal in terms of financing, the fighting machine in terms of a structure — a heavy equipment, heavy explosives, the ability to move quickly. I mean, they crossed the border into Iraq before we even knew it happened. So this is a group of people who are extraordinarily dangerous. And they’ll kill with abandon.” Read more

Washingtonian’s Rebecca Nelson to Join National Journal

In true Karin Tanabe/The List fashion, Washingtonian assistant editor Rebecca Nelson is headed to National Journal where she’ll cover political news of the day as a staff correspondent.

The move channels the jump made by the fictional character of Adrienne Brown in Tanabe’s first book The List, a novel about a late 20s Town & Country writer who leaves the glossy to cover politics for The Capitolist, a foe-outlet that mirrors POLITICO, where Tanabe was prior to writing the book.

In her recent pieces on Washingtonian.com, Nelson has written about Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, “Watergate Witness John Dean,” and Andrea Mitchell. We think she’ll will do just fine in her new role at NJ.

‘Meet the Press’ Guest Host Chris Jansing’s Thank You to Staff

Screen-Shot-2014-08-24-at-9.58.45-PMNBC News senior White House correspondent Chris Jansing yesterday guest-hosted “Meet the Press,” and afterward sent a thank you to staff for their support.

“I can’t tell you how your support calmed my nerves and made my prep as good as it could be,” Jansing wrote in the email.

In May, NBC announced that effective in June, Jansing would relocate from New York where she hosted “Jansing and Co.” on MSNBC, to DC for a promotion as senior White House correspondent. Back in Washington covering the White House for less than two months, she’s already guest hosted the network’s most iconic news program.

Last Sunday, Andrea Mitchell guest-hosted “MTP,” days after David Gregory was ousted as moderator, to be replaced Sept. 7 by Chuck Todd.

Andrea Mitchell Looks Back at David Gregory’s Time as MTP Host and with NBC News

In tribute to ousted “Meet the Press” moderator, yesterday’s host Andrea Mitchell looked back on David Gregory‘s six years hosting MTP and 20 years with NBC News.

“Meet the Press makes a lot of history, and a great deal of it was with David at the helm since he started in December 2008, said Mitchell. “In twenty years with NBC News, David has done it all. The OJ Simpson trial, Timothy McVeigh and the Oklahoma City bombing, TODAY show guest hosting. And, when the cameras weren’t rolling, dead on imitations of everyone from Presidents of the United States to Tom Brokaw. To all the years, David has been true to the traditions of the program and NBC News.”
