Journos Flock to The Week’s Opinion Awards

op- mikajoe.jpgop- ezra.jpg

The Week held their annual Opinion Awards last night at the W Hotel. This year’s event recognized WaPo wunderkind Ezra Klein, TNR’s Jonathan Chait and The Pittsburgh Post Gazette’s Rob Rogers.

White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel kicked off the night with a little humor, calling the award “the most significant thing to happen to Ezra [Klein] since his bar mitzvah last week.”

“Morning Joe” hosts and the evening’s emcees Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski showed their love with a shout out to MSNBC’s David Shuster who is currently suspended from his job for an indefinite amount of time. Shuster and wife, Bloomberg’s Julianna Goldman later dodged questions about the suspension from Examiner’s Tara Palmeri, claiming a stomach ache.

In addition to the emcees and honorees, journalists packed the house last night. FishbowlDC spotted NBC’s Savannah Guthrie and Andrea Mitchell, CNN’s Dana Bash, Ed Henry and Jessica Yellin, Politico’s Patrick Gavin, Mike Allen and Anne Schroeder Mullins, CBS’ Christine Delargy, Tammy Haddad, Bloomberg’s Margaret Carlson, WBJ’s Jen Nycz-Conner, Daily Caller’s Tucker Carlson, WaPo’s Amy Argetsinger and Jonathan Capehart, MSNBC’s Louis Burgdorf, Slate’s John Dickerson, Politics Daily’s Lynn Sweet, Yahoo’s Michael Calderone and Daily Beast’s Tina Brown and Ronnie Cho.

Also in attendance were Brad Dayspring, Hilary Rosen, Matt Cooper, Ben Bradlee, Sally Quinn, Juleanna Glover, as well as “Washington’s own George Clooney,” Kevin Madden (as described by several guests).

To wrap up the evening, The Week Editor-at-Large Sir Harold Evans moderated a panel debate between Senator Amy Klobuchar(D-MN) Governor Ed Rendell (D-PA), Rep.Eric Cantor (R-VA), and Republican strategist Steve Schmidt.

CPAC Candy Coverage Pretty Sweet

Editors wanting to break into alternative video coverage around town need to take note of Politico’s recent TMZ-style candy video from CPAC. This could be what Washington D.C. sorely needs – go to “serious-minded” events and ask the absurd (but ask it as seriously as possible). Think John Oliver from The Daily Show. Think Stuttering John from Howard Stern.

In this instance, Patrick Gavin and Anne Schroeder Mullins go around with a video camera and ask CPAC booth reps serious questions about their candy – everything from the questionably hygienic Jelly Bellies to Dummy lollipops to miniature Earth-shaped chocolate balls.

Watch for the spunky white-haired woman in the American flag tie who says, “Well, we have mint, peppuh-mint and this looks like buttah-sctoch, and this one is cream, ahaaa! How’s that?”

Funniest questions:

Gavin: “If somebody were to have, say, a bucket of jellybeans exposed to the public, hands going into it all day, is that unsanitary?”
Schroeder Mullins: “What if someone took the whole bowl and ran away?”

An Open Letter to Politico re: “Click” & Kiki

Dear Politico,

Please add FishbowlDC to your press list. Remember us? The site that writes about you and your industry all day, every day? Doesn’t ring a bell? Ask Patrick Gavin.

1) When you launch new sites (see Politico Click), we’d like to know. Since I covered USA Today’s Wine Club today, chances are you would have gotten a post.

2) If you hire the gossip columnist from the Examiner… The second, in a year…(see Patrick Gavin again). That’s big news too. “Kiki Ryan to Politico” as a subject line would have gotten our attention…

But instead, you buried the lead in your “Politico Click” press release that I got from someone at WaPo (Solid!):

CLICK editors and reporters – Katherine Lehr, Pia Catton, Anne Schroeder Mullins, Patrick Gavin, Amie Parnes and Kiki Ryan – will provide the best behind-the-scenes coverage and take-you-there reporting from all the fetes, the openings, launch parties, embassy dinners, museum exhibits and more.

Anyhow, good luck with your paper, website and Kiki.

Love,

FishbowlDC
