Fishbowl Summer Superlatives – THE RESULTS Part Deux

On Thursday, we began rolling out the results of our Summer Superlatives and today, you get to meet the rest of the winners. Thanks for voting.

Today’s results kicks off with the Best Dressed category. This cage match was between Politico’s Ken Vogel and Kate Nocerra, WaPo’s Jonathan Capehart, RCP’s Erin McPike, and CNN’s Kate Balduan. This contest wasn’t even close. While we had a feeling Capehart would be the clear winner, he was a very distant second to Kate Balduan! Congrats, Kate. Your prize is a $1 gift card to Fashion Bug!

Moving right along, we asked you to name Washington’s Best Writer. Your choices were The Weekly Standard’s Matt Labash, The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza, NJ’s Major Garrett, NYT’s Mark Leibovich, Ashley Parker and Maureen Dowd, WaPo‘s Karen Tumulty, HuffPost’s Eliot Nelson, and Washingtonian’s Luke Mullins. This one was a close one to call. It was a two-man race between Garrett and Labash, but in the end, Major Garrett came through and was voted the winner. It should be noted that today is Garrett’s birthday.

Which Washington journo is Most In Need of a Salad? We asked you to choose between Politico’s Jonathan Allen and Jonathan Martin, Slate‘s Dave Weigel, HuffPost’s Peter Cherukuri and Jason Linkins, FNC’s Bob Beckel and Bret Baier, and author and former TWTer Rich Miniter. This was another category where it wasn’t even close. The FNC team of Bob Beckel and Bret Baier were the heavy favorites and waddled walked their way to an easy victory.

Next up, we had the category that saw more votes than any other, Sexiest. Your sultry selections were AP‘s Steve Peoples, Atlantic Publisher Justin Smith, Washingtonian‘s Kate Bennett, Real Housewives of D.C.’s sassy stylist Paul Wharton, CNN’s Brianna Keilar, NBC4′s Doug Kammerer and Maynard Institute’s Richard Prince. The winner by a slim, sexy (and consenting) majority was Brianna Keilar.

On the other side of the coin, we have Who is Most In Need of a Makeover? Your choices were CQ Roll Call (the entire publication), The Daily Caller’s Matthew Boyle, TWT’s Stephen Dinan, DCRTV’s Dave Hughes and Mediaite’s Tommy Christopher. Once again, this was a two-man race between Christopher and Boyle. While Christopher just looks generally disheveled, the overall train wreck that is Matthew Boyle was voted the winner. Congrats, Matt. We hear that Paul Wharton may be available to help turn you into a beautiful swan.

Last, but certainly not least, is the Best On-Air Personality. The heavy-hitters on this list were ABC’s Jake Tapper, The Daily Caller’s Tucker Carlson, MSNBC’s Chuck Todd, CBS’s Bob Schieffer and Nancy Cordes, HuffPost‘s Sam Stein, and WaPo’s Nia-Malika Henderson. At the end of the day, the experience of Schieffer couldn’t keep up with your winner, Jake Tapper!

Congratulations to all of our winners.

 

Morning Reading List 5.14.12

Will the film ever get off the ground? Politico‘s Patrick Gavin brings us the story of Norman Kelley‘s plan to make a documentary about Charlie Peters, former founder and editor of The Washington Monthly, which is now bimonthly. But will the film ever come to fruition? So far the film has raised $1,685 and they need $15,000. By today. And this is Kelley’s big sell of Peters: “Charlie Peters is not a sexy guy,” Kelley told Politico. “He’s not a sexy subject. … It’s just hard to raise money on a film about a guy from the past. … It’s hard raising money for a documentary film if you’re not Ken Burns or Michael Moore, particularly about a journalist who’s not a sexy journalist on one of the television talk shows.” Read the full story here. Publish time: 4:36 a.m.

Arianna discusses philandering father – Mother’s Day brings up poignant memories. HuffPost-AOL Editor-in-Chief Arianna Huffington penned an op-ed in the NYT over the weekend. It’s called “Greek Tragedy.” In her walk down memory lane in Athens, she recalls her father’s unsuccessful attempt to own a newspaper as well as his cheating habit. “It wasn’t the bankruptcy that got to my mom in the end, but the philandering,” she wrote. Read here.

Media failure or fairness? — With opinion journalism being all the rage these days, Media Matters took the networks to task Sunday for hosting conservatives like Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council and former GOP Presidential hopeful Gary Bauer, both of whom fiercely oppose same-sex marriage. They called it “Easy Sunday for Group Hate Leader on CNN, CBS.” The writer, Jocelyn Fong, says if she ever has kids someday she’ll get to tell them about the President’s historic announcement, but she’ll also have to inform them that the networks gave “hate group leaders” a platform for their views. Perkins turned up on CNN’s State of the Union with Candy Crowley and on CBS’s Face the Nation with Bob Schieffer. Tsk. Tsk. Fong says Schieffer never challenged Perkins. Instead, the newsman agreed with Perkins that he was glad to allow all sides of the debate. (Which psst… is kind of the point of journalism in the first place.) Read the full story here.

WHCD Tick Tock

We’re recapping the White House Correspondents’ Dinner from Saturday night with a special Tick Tock. Enjoy as we take you through the night.

By Betsy Rothstein, Peter Ogburn and Eddie Scarry

5:30 p.m.: I meet up with Eddie at a shitty McDonald’s in Adams Morgan as the sky opens up to a downpour. Eddie is visibly pissed. He had his umbrella in hand and left it since (he says) weather reports declared that it wouldn’t rain until around 11 p.m. That’s right, we start the evening with Eddie blaming the media.

5:45 p.m. Peter, Eddie and I convene at the Washington Hilton bar to inhale Cokes as we mentally prepare our plan of attack for the evening.

6 p.m. We approach the escalators and are turned away from going downstairs because we need to show the security man a copy of our invitation. He says he knows its stupid, but it’s the way it is. Our knight in shining armor, HuffPost‘s Ryan Grim approaches and hands me what is comparable to contraband — a photocopy invitation of one of the pre-parties. He has several copies.

6 :10 p.m. And we’re in. We’ve entered the Atlantic/NJ/CBS pre-party, where the star of the evening is actress Claire Danes. She’s there as a guest of CBS “Face the Nation” host Bob Schieffer. Her brother tags along. Nonetheless, Schieffer stays close by Danes. Asked if he has the best guest of the night, he says, “I mean, it’s Claire Danes, what more do I need to say?”

6:19 p.m. Outdoor parties are the loser of the evening. It’s cold, damp and people are on a mad hunt for the bars. But we also spot our first WHCD big butt of the night; or perhaps that’s just an ill-fitting coat.

6:34 p.m. Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) enters Atlantic fest. Mother Jones and MSNBC Contributor David Corn is here with the lead singer of OK GO. This was the big q of the night at this party — who is David Corn with? NJ Publicist Taylor West tells me FishbowlDC had better get to the bottom of this.

6:40 p.m. We’re now mingling out in the hallway, watching Bloomberg’s Stephanie Green interview model Elle MacPherson, who is wearing a high slitted sleeveless black gown, similar to what Angelina Jolie wore to the Oscars. We hear Stephanie conclude her interview by saying, “Thank you so much. I love your underwear!” Whoa! What? We asked Stephanie if she had said what we thought she did. She said what many inevitably say to reporters: “You’re not quoting me on this, are you?”

6:42 p.m. The Washington Examiner‘s Nikki Schwab gives Eddie the first cold shoulder of the day — it’s actually FBDC’s second bout of coldness from her in a 24-hour time frame. Don’t worry, there will be more.

6:43 p.m. Shock of all shocks, Politico‘s Mike Allen has his face buried in his Blackberry.

6:44 p.m. We wander into the TWT reception hoping to meet Uggie the dog and hear he was just there and just left. We meet TWT‘s Kerry Picket and her boyfriend, whom the blond towers over.  The party ironically serves Mexican food. WSJ‘s Neil King is here with his daughter Lilly.

7 p.m. Next stop: Bloomberg reception, where NY Mayor Mike Bloomberg is holding court in the center of the room in a purple bow-tie. A partygoer sees a black woman across the room and asks, “Is that Michelle Obama?” Actor Kevin Spacey is also here and singer Alicia Keys. Guests attack them for photographs like a bunch of star-crazed idiots.

7:10 p.m. Back out in the hallway, Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer asks Peter if he’s “just here to watch the hotties go by.”

7:15 p.m. We run into Pollster Frank Luntz, who’s dressed in a goofy striped suit and his signature sneakers. He’s miserable, he says. “Too many people, too chaotic. That said, there’s nothing like it.” He answers questions about his sneakers, saying that at this point he has maybe 35 pairs. He has three homes so he says he has to split them up. Luntz surmises by the end of the year he’ll have between 40 and 50 pairs. He explains that when he worked for a previous network they made him wear a tie, which he found so confining. So he decided they can force him from the neck up but from the feet down? That area is all his. No idea who owns the area between his neck and feet.

7:17 p.m. Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell says it’s “great to see so many young people here.” He forgets he’s not at a campaign rally.

7:20 p.m. Took a bathroom break. Walked in behind Schieffer. Walked out behind Luntz.

7:24 p.m. Lady drops tray of wine glasses. They shatter. Glass everywhere. She’s all nonchalant about it. No one hurt.

7:25 p.m.: James Davis, spokesman for the GOP Convention in Tampa, is bragging to Politico‘s Charlie Mahtesian that he ate 11 onions in 8 minutes during last year’s Vidalia Onion eating contest, which he nearly won. Because of the WHCA dinner, he’s missing this year’s onion-eating contest.

7:26 p.m.: HuffPost‘s Laura Bassett “on a mission” to find actress Reese Witherspoon. Just saw lead actress from “B in Apartment 3″ have to find out her name.

7:27 p.m.: NYT‘s Brian Stelter saunters by holding hands with his girlfriend, who has donned a bright red dress. “She is cute,” says Eddie. And we spot another set of WHCD big butts.

7:28 p.m. Rep. Fred Upton‘s niece, model Kate Upton, walks by. Heads turn. Onlookers try to figure out who she is. Because she looks like SOMEONE. Peter says he’s going to text his neighbor’s horny son to find out who she is.

7:29 p.m.: MSNBC Commentator Richard Wolffe escorting Chef Jose Andres for the second night in a row. Andres is responsible for the outstanding fare at The Atlantic‘s David Bradley‘s Friday night soiree that included things like crushed beat on toast and crispy avocado.

7:30 p.m. The balding gentleman with Elle MacPherson casually places his hand on her ass on their way down the hallway toward the ballroom.

7: 40 p.m. Eyes turn as CBS Chief White House Norah O’Donnell walks by in a long, bright yellow sequined dress that’s scooped out low in the back. Bystanders remark favorably on her attire. On her arm was Chef Geoff (Mr. Norah O’Donnell) escorting her. No one remarked on his tux.

7:42 p.m. Woody Harrelson seen leaving reception. Corona still in hand. Though he spent much of the weekend glued to Steve Schmidt‘s side, we hear he was flirting heavily with certain female reporters over the weekend.

7:43 p.m.: Always the charmer, Eddie rushes up to actress Kerry Washington, whose wearing a lovely long peach gown, and tells her how great she looks. Washington stars in the new series “Scandal” in which she plays a lawyer who has slept with the President of the United States.

7:44 p.m. Tom Hanks‘s son, Colin, who is the spitting image of his father, is mobbed by partygoers and friends in the hallway.

7:45 p.m. Garden brunch extraordinaire Tammy Haddad heads toward the ballroom with the 4’11” Daniel Radcliffe in a sparkly red and black blazer.

 

 

Morning Chatter

Quotes of the Day

Hey Boybander: Go on vacation already goddamn you!

“Well, @United 1736 into IAH is delayed. Someone better make sure @United 53 is held so I don’t miss my honeymoon transfer.” — Slate economics reporter Matt Yglesias, who is apparently going to annoyingly tweet his entire “vacation.” Over the weekend, he tweeted nonstop in Buenos Aires. His poor bride.  He even felt the need to tweet this: “Vacation day! Step one: coffee. Step two: figure out how to set out-of-office email mess.” This was probably the worst of it: “BREAKING: They have really good steak in Argentina.”

Schieffer’s ultra-polite farewell

“Mr. Basham, I want to thank you for coming on. I wish it could have been under different circumstances, but perhaps there will be time down the road when we’ll have happier things to talk about.” — CBS Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer to former Secret Service Director Ralph Basham on Sunday’s program.

NYT reporter razzes HuffPost

“HuffPost Hill chasing greatness.HAPPY BP OIL SPILL ANNIVERSARY(?) It’s been 2 years since Unbridled Capitalism vomited in the Gulf of Mexico.” — NYT‘s Mark Leibovich, whose Twitter presence has been picking up as of late.

Reporter wants washer/dryer advice

“Anyone have stackable washer/dryers they particularly like or loathe?” — Politico‘s Reid Epstein. FBDC’s Peter Ogburn asks, “WTF is this, ‘This Old House’ or Twitter?” Meanwhile, we still want to know how the week-old new home owner injured himself and wound up in the ER. Anyone with information on this urgent matter please email us at FishbowlDC@mediabistro.com or Betsy@mediabistro.com.

Bathroom trick

“Am I the only one who pretends to talk on my cell before patronizing a restroom at a bar/restaurant where I’m not actually a patron?” — RealClearPoliticsScott Conroy.

Writing trick

“A good way to increase suspense in your writing is to change all instances of ‘obviously’ to ‘ominously.’” — The Atlantic‘s Molly Ball.

Breitbart Editor gets pretty personal

“Don’t tell the wife but intentionally mispronounce Spanish words cuz it’s kinda sexy when she corrects me.” — Breitbart.com’s John Nolte, Editor-in-Chief of Big Hollywood.

A Question to Ponder…“Is saying you’ve endorsed Mitt Romney on a Sunday talk show different from a ‘formal endorsement’?” — Roll Call‘s Ryan Teague Beckwith in reference to Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) on ABC’s “This Week.”

Journo is anti-Earth Day

“Don’t forget to take an extraaaaaaa longgggggg shower today! #EarthDay.” — Ex-Human Events reporter Jason Mattera.

Spotted: Politico‘s Jedd Rosche eating a box of fried chicken strips outside a bar on U St. Friday night. The bar wouldn’t allow him to enter with his meal.

Barfworthy: “I was moved by this video, as I’m sure you all will be, as we think of our own mothers and what they have done for us.” — Ann Romney this weekend in her 11th tweet, otherwise known as Milking the Mom Issue Expedition stemming from RosenGate, which she called an “early birthday present.” Watch the video here.

Eddie Scarry and Peter Ogburn contributed to this report.

CBS “Face the Nation” Partners With Google, Schieffer Plans on Summer Staycation

From the Dept. of Bragiculture…When FBDC showed up Monday at the launch of a new partnership by CBS and Google Plus in Logan Circle, we were greeted with pure, unadulterated love. “I read FishbowlDC everyday,” CBS intern Chad Sinclair said.

Bursting with good spirits, we made our way upstairs of Fathom Creative, where the launch was hosted, and found three open bars placed no more than 25 feet apart. They made damn sure getting a drink wouldn’t be a problem. That, in itself, could have presented a problem. Unfortunately no one got out of control.

Among the first reporters to join the party was Politico‘s party animal Mike Allen. He zipped around the room shaking hands and saying hi to everyone he knew and everyone he didn’t.

Allen left 45 minutes in but was replaced by his colleague Patrick Gavin, who was wearing a blazer with tennis shoes. Gavin told us that Politico Live, Politico’s venture into video news, is a work in progress but said “it’s fun to be a part of [it].”

We soon ran into the star of the party, “Face the Nation” anchor Bob Schieffer. “No!” he said when we asked if he had any summer vacation plans. “I’ll be working my ass off,” he said.

They gave out weird purple socks as party “favors” in honor of Schieffer, known for his striking hosiery (photograph below).

The event was held to unveil an interactive election-coverage feature that CBS and Google will host roughly once a month called “hangouts.” The gist: Voters across the country will be selected to participate in tele-town halls with Schieffer. A new voice-controlled Google software facilitates the discussion. The first hangout is scheduled for Thursday. Excerpts will air on Sunday’s “Face the Nation.”

In a brief party speech Schieffer joked that he’s worried about participants in the hangouts using software that puts “ears and horns” on his face on the screen. “I can’t wait for someone to be rude to me,” he said.

Everyone at the party seemed to admire Scheiffer, chatting him up and speaking fondly of him to one another. “So goes Bob, so goes the network,” we overheard one attendee say.

Notables

Others spotted at the party: CBS White House Correspondents Bill Plante and Norah O’Donnell, Political Director John Dickerson, Washington Bureau Chief Chris Isham, HuffPost‘s Michael Calderone, CNN’s Peter Hamby and the Washington Examiner‘s Nikki Schwab, who was surprisingly verbal even though her rumored policy is to give FBDC the cold shoulder.

Quotable

“I can’t believe FishbowlDC isn’t drinking” — CBS Vice President of Programming Chris Licht.

Joe Biden Set for Sunday’s ‘Face the Nation’

On Sunday, CBS will air its first ever one hour broadcast of “Face the Nation” with host Bob Schieffer. And who better to kick off their first full hour than potential gaffe machine Veep Joe Biden? Schieffer, CBS News’s Chief Washington Correspondent, conducted the interview on Thursday in Milwaukee.

Excerpts of the interview will be broadcast tonight on the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley 6:30-7:00 PM) and tomorrow, March 30, on CBS This Morning (7:00-9:00 AM) on CBS.

“It’s about time,” said Schieffer in a release of the program moving to a one-hour format.

Politico Turns 5. Let the Roasting Begin.

Five years isn’t really that long, but Politico has seen rapid growth and a lot of success since it first began in 2007. So on a highly self-congratulatory note on Monday, Politico released a video with clips of several high-profile political players roasting the publication on its half-decade mark.

“Five years, it’s a long time. You’re doing generally a great job,” says Donald Trump.

Politico is “truly a news organization that acts its age: a petulant five-year-old concerned with only trivial matters,” host of “MTP” David Gregory says with a smile.

With a few repeats and some intensive listening, Arianna Huffington can be understood as saying, “Just as I was sitting down to write this, I saw that Mike Allen had already broken what I was going to say.”

MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” host Willie Geist remarks, “I’ve gotta recuse myself because I don’t care for Politico, inside the Beltway gossipy garbage. And CBS “Face the Nation” host Bob Schieffer cracks, “The next thing you know, you’ll be getting your driver’s license.”

Politico‘s Mike Allen‘s note to Politico readers as well as Politico staff is so sweet we think we’ve already contracted Diabetes… “THANK YOU to all of you who believed in us from Day 0. And we’re so grateful to our gifted, inspiring colleagues who make POLITICO so essential, enjoyable and illuminating.”

Other notables in the video include former CBS news anchor Katie Couric, “Morning Joe’s” Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough, FNC’s Greta Van Susteren and host of “Hardball” Chris Matthews, who says he enjoys reading the print version because it’s printed on such “thick stock.”

Watch the full video here.

Down With Kermit

We like the Muppets.  We like watching the news.  What we HATE is watching the Muppets become the news.  This reached new levels of absurdity yesterday when Kermit the Frog invaded Washington, DC.  First stop was CBS News where he joined Bob Schieffer to discuss politics.  Kermit goes so far as to say he’s not ruling out running for President as a “Green Party” candidate.

Fine.  Cute.  Well, not even that cute. But Kermit was not done. Then he enters CNN’s Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer to awkwardly chit chat about the presidential race and calls himself an “Amphibian American.” Wolf said that he should come back to debate someone.  Kermit says the perfect opponent would be Newt.  Because “Newt is from the swamp.” His awkward camera appearance, lack of knowledge on the issues and bad jokes almost reached Howard Fineman levels. Almost.

Then to top it all off, Kermit hopped (sorry) over to light the National Christmas Tree with the First Family.  He even read a Christmas poem with Michelle Obama.  Stop ruining my childhood, Kermit!  You aren’t running for President!  You aren’t a political pundit!  You aren’t welcome in Washington DC anymore!  Anyone have a good restaurant recommendation?  I need to find a good plate of frog legs.

 

Politico Scribe Wins Coveted Award at Karaoke

Pictured with Politico’s Dave Catanese are the ladies of Russia Television — Krissy Frazao and Alyona Minkovski. Lauren Lyster was a third backup dancer, but is not pictured above.

Politico‘s Dave Catanese won “The Schieffer,” the highest award at Karaoke in the Capital last night at the Rock n’ Roll Hotel. He and the women of Russia TV performed Niki Minaj’s “Superbass.” Catanese praised his backup singers, saying, “The ladies, dressed in hot pink skirts, were wonderful dancers that obviously clinched the victory for us.”

Other performances of the evening included CBS’s Bob Schieffer, NJ‘s Chris Frates, The Hill‘s Sam Youngman, who sang “A Country Boy Can Survive,” and NBC White House Producer Shawna Thomas, who brought down the house with “Before he Cheats,” and a fiddler, Alex Ruiz, who played “Devil Went Down to Georgia” in a duet with TWT‘s Peter Parisi. Both Ruiz and Parisi were dressed in black with Parisi alternating between a black cowboy hat and red devil horns as the song progressed. (This is completely normal, we swear.) Freelancer Stephanie Green promised over Twitter to “make a fool of myself again tonight for Karaoke in the Capital.”

D.C. Media Events Can be Nasty Biz

Media event planning can be a dirty business in Washington. In many instances it’s tough to tell who is playing copy cat, but some things are clear: publications are vying to host pointedly similar events and competing for guests and warm bodies to fill their audiences. Getting the events underwritten is no small task. This is also where things can turn sneaky.

We recently reported that Politico was hosting a year out election event to be held the morning of Nov. 1. They sent word via a “Save the Date” note. As it so happens, NJ is hosting a twin gathering on the very same morning. They circulated information about their election preview among D.C.’s community of sponsors and advertisers prior to Politico‘s notice back in March. But word travels fast in Washington — these are some of the same sponsors and advertisers with whom Politico also negotiates.

“Events are definitely a business,” said an industry insider who didn’t want to be quoted by name. “They provide great exposure for media organizations, and they are good opportunities for professionals in D.C. to get in-depth briefings on political and policy issues, but they are also a real contributor to most media companies’ bottom lines.”

NJ‘s election preview event is being underwritten by the National Assoc. of Homebuilders and United Technologies. Yahoo! News is a co-sponsor and the outlet’s journalists will participate in the event. Sessions have been planned. An agenda can be found online. Politico, meanwhile, hasn’t revealed their underwriters, locale or agenda — announcements are expected next week.

To be sure, special outside guests are a hot commodity for these media affairs. Initial email invites from NJ to panelists, ABC’s Amy Walter, CBS’s Bob Schieffer and NBC’s Chuck Todd,  went out the end of July. Still, Politico also secured Todd and Walter, with Todd receiving his invitation from NJ prior to Politico. With Todd and Walter being NJ alums, it’s no shock they’d want them to participate. Just like networks, the dueling event organizers can space them at different times, but the double booking has to be causing some to squirm. Politico‘s other gets: Former Bush Spokesman Ari Fleischer, former White House Deputy Press Secretary Bill Burton, CBS’s Norah O’Donnell and CNN’s Jessica Yellin amid several unknown names from the Des Moines Register, St. Pete Times and Charleston Post Courier.

NJ and Politico are utilizing many of their own reporters and editors for the events, so from a guest’s perspective it comes down to who do you want to hear more? From Politico you’ll see the usual suspects of Executive Editor Jim VandeHei, Mike Allen and Senior Political Reporter Jonathan Martin. From NJ there’s Editor-in-Chief Ron Fournier, Ron Brownstein, Charlie Cook and Matthew Cooper.

Different faces, but the concept is the same. Does Washington really need identical events from sparring publications all on the same morning? And if this all seems more than petty, it is except for the fact that these events are vital in gaining a publication significant exposure, buzz and ultimately revenue.

A source at Politico, who spoke on condition of being nameless, argues their event will be richer in content, offering a nearly identical theme to NJ‘s event and a list of  participants: “Although the topics are similar, and we’re delighted Amy and Chuck can join us, we really feel our event is different: we have panels covering a wider range of topics with a broader group of people on stage. We have had a great response since our invitations went out at the end of September and believe our half-day event will be the place for kicking-off the countdown to November 2012.”

NJ Publicist Taylor West, counters, saying, “The National Journal events team is one of the most respected and successful in Washington because they invest the time, preparation, and thoughtfulness that it takes to put together premier events. Our 2012 Election Preview event is no exception, with a can’t-miss slate of confirmed participants, in-depth sessions on each of the critical parts of the upcoming election cycle, and more exciting guest announcements to come. For folks looking for substance and strategy – not spin – this event will deliver the goods.”

Despite the clawing and infighting involved in executing these events, insiders insist these events are key to a publication’s success or failure.
