Atlantic to Take Breath Away With Long-Named Event

My eyes are glazing over just reading this release, so let’s get this over with. The Atlantic is hosting some kind of event with “interviews, discussions, and debates” on February 9 at the Newseum. It has one of the longer event titles we’ve seen in recent history: “The Atlantic‘s Live Digital Town Hall: Finding Work, Finding Our Way: Building the Economy and Jobs of the Future.”

The program will feature a bunch of important people, including National Economic Council Director Gene Sperling and FCC Chair Julius Genachowski, along with Virgina Gov. Bob McDonnell, former OMB director and husband of ABC’s Bianna Golodryga, Peter Orszag, and PBS’ Judy Woodruff.

It’s going to be way better than it sounds (we hope).

Stewart to Stephanopoulos: “Go Home George!”

george.jpgComedy Central’s Jon Stewart razzes ABC’s GMA host George Stephanopoulos over his omnipresence on the network. “Is George Stephanopoulos now on every show on ABC? I wake up at 6 a.m. and he’s there, I go to bed at midnight — he’s still there!” Stewart grumbled on his show last night. “Go home George!”

This morning’s segment had co-host Robin Roberts and Bianna Golodryga laughing on the couch beside Stephanopoulos. The trio, a little while later after some news, moved into a segment on dog tricks, complete with dogs jumping high into the air to catch Frisbees on set. “I just want to say hello over here,” said Stephanopoulos to one of the jumping pooches. “She’s a sweetie.”

Stephanopoulos joked that he’d soon appear on “Lost,” but first remarked on Stewart’s assessment, saying, “Ali would agree with that.” (That would be Ali Wentworth, Stephanopoulos’s wife.)

NEWSPAPERS

NYT columnist and author Thomas Friedman returned a $75,000 speaker’s fee. LAT reports that the reversal came after a “misunderstanding” about the engagement with the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of “Hot, Flat, and Crowded: Why We Need a Green Revolution — and How It Can Renew America.”

TV

One of the biggest stories this week was the murder of five American troops by a fellow sergeant at Camp Liberty in Baghdad. In her report, ABC’s senior foreign affairs correspondent Martha Raddatz had video from inside the clinic where the shooting took place. “Just a few weeks earlier, on her 20th reporting trip to Iraq, she had spent an afternoon at Camp Liberty in Baghdad,” reports The New York Observer’s Felix Gillette. “Ms. Raddatz had spent an entire afternoon interviewing the clinic’s staff members for her report on how the military was coping with the recent uptick in suicides.”

TVNewser reports news orgs were asked not to name the “other woman” during interviews with Elizabeth Edwards. In three TV interviews, Hunter, “the other woman” in the John Edwards affair, Rielle Hunter, was not mentioned.

On the same note, AP reports that it was twice denied interviews with Edwards’ because it refused to omit the name of Edwards’ mistress from its articles about Elizabeth and her book. The article quotes Michael Oreskes, the AP’s vice president and senior managing editor who said simply, “We don’t let other people edit our wire.”

ABC financial correspondent Bianna Golodryga joined the Morning Media Menu today to talk about covering the financial crisis and the differences between working for network and cable news.

RADIO

In memoriam, from NYT: Robert R. Pauley, a former president of the ABC Radio network who championed radio at a time when television was replacing it as a dominant medium, died on May 2. When Pauley became the president of the network in 1961, he reinvigorated it, in part by emphasizing live events, especially sports.

ONLINE

NYT: Craigslist will close its erotic services category, which critics have said is a forum that fosters prostitution and other illegal activities. To replace it, the company has created a category called adult services, in which postings will be reviewed by employees.

NEWS NOTES

Reuters: North Korea said it would put two U.S. journalists it arrested in March on trial on June 4, ratcheting up tension with Washington. Analysts said the reclusive North sees the two reporters as bargaining chips to try to win concessions.

Time Mag asks, Dick Cheney: Why So Chatty All of a Sudden?

There was some confusion at Columbia University over whether Attorney General Eric Holder‘s Graduate School of Journalism commencement speech on May 19th would be open or closed to the press. Page Six caught up with a rep from the school- “There is nothing at all we want to hide.”

AWARDS

UCLA’s Anderson School of Management announced the finalists for its 2009 Gerald Loeb Awards for Distinguished Business and Financial Journalism. WSJ and NYT had the most finalists, with seven each across multiple categories. Bloomberg, “60 Minutes” and CBS were also recognized with a handful of nominations each, while now defunct magazine Portfolio received three nods. FishbowlNY has the complete list of awards here.
