Afternoon Reading List 10.02.13

Alec Baldwin blasts Scarborough, Kristol on Twitter: In a HuffPost piece this morning by Jack Mirkinson, new MSNBC host Alec Baldwin blasts his colleague, Joe Scarborough, and his guest, The Weekly Standard Editor Bill Kristol on Wednesday morning. Despite the wishes of his new boss, Phil Griffin, the president of the network, who publicly told Alec that he needed to tone down his Twitter fighting, Alec went on his rampage before most people even finished their morning coffee.

Why you should read it: Check out Alec’s tweets and see who he credits for his flagrant disregard for his new boss’s orders. Read more here.

Press to blame for government shutdown? According to Media Matters blogger, Eric Boehlert, members of the press are partially responsible. For using falsely equivalent terms like “both sides” and “Congress” in reporting, Boehlert says the media takes the blame from those who really deserve it. Namely, in Boehlert’s liberal eyes, the Republicans, specifically, the far right-wing faction of the party, (AKA the Tea Partiers).

Why you should read it: This story may be talking about you and the reporting you did that one time about Obamacare and America and people and such. Remember? Well that’s why. Read more here

CNN “Crossfire” Party Packs a Punch

“It was terr i fy ying,” said CNN “Crossfire” host Van Jones, careful to enunciate every syllable when asked about his first night on the job.

At least at the Crossfire launch party held last night at the Carnegie Library he could finally let his hair down (so to speak) and enjoy a night with friends, colleagues, booze and a band.

His co-hosts popped in the crowd — Newt Gingrich with his big, shiny helmet of white hair, S.E. Cupp in a purple leather sleeveless dress and Stephanie Cutter in power red.

Meanwhile, others mingled: Newt’s wife, Callista held her own with her perfect, shiny, white-blond bob,  former “Crossfire” host Paul Begala wished the new hosts well, as Rep. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.) and fiancé, Maria Belen Chapur, attracted flashbulbs on the red carpet while a very thin Caroline Kennedy, President Obama’s nominee for Amb. to Japan, drew stares. Others spotted around the room: WJLA’s Rebecca Cooper, conservative radio host Laura Ingraham, The Weekly Standard Editor Bill Kristol (who is far shorter in person than we imagined), FNC’s Greta Van Susteren and husband, John Coale, WaPo‘s Jackie Kucinich, ex-TWT Editor Sam Dealey, TWT‘s senior opinion writer Emily Miller, The Daily Caller‘s Alex Pappas, Politico‘s Dylan Byers, The Hill‘s Emily Goodin, CQ Roll Call‘s Abby Livingston, Slate‘s Dave Weigel, TIME‘s Michael Crowley, MSNBC’s Karen Finney, lefty radio host Bill Press, Speaker John Boehner‘s spokesman Michael Steel and wife, Mary Kathryn Covert, lobbyist Jack Quinn and wife, Susanna, Americans for Tax Reform Prez Grover Norquist, NRSC’s fiery Brad Dayspring, and consultant Brian Walsh.

CNNer’s spotted in the crowd: CNN President Jeff Zucker, Washington Bureau Chief Sam Feist, Jessica Yellin, Dana Bash, Brianna Keilar, Wolf Blitzer, Gloria Borger, Candy Crowley (without a shred of makeup), Wendell Goler, Matt Dornic, and Edie Emery.

Asked about Cupp, his conservative co-host, Jones said, “S.E. is the most likeable person ever born. I think they created her in a lab. She hypnotizes you and then she goes in for the kill.”

Cupp also had a thing or two to say about Jones. Read more

A New Pastime: Butchering Podhoretz’s Name

It might be time for Commentary Editor John Podhoretz to get it over with and legally change his surname. Something with just a few more vowels.

At the National Review Institute summit this weekend, conservatives in media and politics gathered to talk about the future of the Republican Party. Those who participated on the “What is wrong with the Right?” panel on Saturday morning with Podhoretz either worked around having to say his name or completely botched it while trying.

National Review‘s Reihan Salam moderated the panel. While introducing the guests, he noted one John “Pod-hore-ets,” with emphasis on each syllable. “It’s ‘Pud-or-its,’” Podoretz said. Apologizing, Salam tried again: “Pud-hore-ets.”

Recognizing that his own name is difficult to pronounced, Salam thanked Podoretz “for the privilege of letting me butcher someone else’s name.”

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough also spoke on the panel. Though Podoretz has been a guest on Scarborough’s “Morning Joe” program, it’s a name with which the “Morning Joe” host still struggles. “I won’t try to say his last name because I always butcher it,” Scarborough said.

NYT columnist Ross Douthat had no luck either… Read more

Separated at Birth: Bob Woodward

Today we match one of the most famous journalists in the United States — WaPo‘s Bob Woodward and The Weekly Standard Editor Bill Kristol. Strangely, we also think Woodward has more than a tinge of “Steve” (David Eigenberg) from “Sex and the City”

in him.
