Is Lizzie O’Leary Pregnant?

Journalist Lizzie O’Leary got Twitter all excited on Friday afternoon when she casually tweeted, “Pregnanté.”

Naturally, several people on Twitter assumed this was O’Leary announcing that she was with child. This would have been big news considering that, not long ago, O’Leary spoke to Cosmo about her battle with endometriosis, which puts a damper on baby-making. The congratulatory tweets started coming in. Bloomberg’s Ryan Sutton tweeted, “ZOMG congrats! counting the days until your offspring annihilate(s) the competition on teen jeopardy!” WaPo’s Jim Tankersley responded, “!!!!!! that’s great news.” WSJ’s Victoria McGrane kept up the overuse of exclamations by tweeting, “CONGRATS!!!!!!!!”

So, what’s the problem? Read more

A Chat With Ebony’s Man of Power: Roland Martin

40th+NAACP+Image+Awards+Red+Carpet+dxCZu5q9Le4m.jpgFor the third year in a row CNN Contributor and TV One’s “Washington Watch” Host Roland Martin has been named one of “Power 150″ by Ebony Magazine. Martin makes the list with the likes of Beyonce, Tyra Banks and Chris Rock.

We checked in to see what this powerful man has on his mind these days, aside from recently inspiring ESPN’s “Ascot Day” for wearing fashion-inspiring neck wear.

After three years on this Power 150 list do you feel powerful?
Well, I tell you what. I’ve always felt the media industry was the second strongest institution in the world. When you see folks overtake a country, they always take over the military first because you have to take the guns, Then they take over the newspapers, radio and TV stations. That is the direct way to the hearts and minds of the people, so we carry an extra burden in what we do in our daily jobs.

Does the power seem to go down after say, year two?
First of all, all these different lists are subjective. But you recognize what happens when you say something on television and you put something in print. Always good when you get feedback whether it’s pro or con. When you have the haters come out you know you’ve sparked a nerve in somebody.

Who has been the most memorable interview of your career?
Definitely Earl Woods, Tiger Woods’s father. I mean it was so awesome. First of all I’m allergic to smoke. But Earl smoked through the whole interview. (Dionne Warwick also smoked through her whole whole interview — trust me that was a little rough on the brother.) I remember asking him, ‘How do you think Tiger is going to go on playing when you’re no longer here.?’ He said, ‘Tiger will always hear my voice no matter where he is on the course. I have put an imprint on him – he will always hear my voice.’

What do you think about Tiger’s situation?.
If Earl was hear he’d go and look in his face and say, ‘You f-ed up. You’re going to have to take this public butt licking like a man. The Green Beret in him would say, ‘You made a grown man decision, you are suffering grown man consequences.’
