Morning Chatter

Quotes of the Day

Blogger laments overusing F-bomb (well, sort of)

“I really have an unhealthy usage of the F word. I should put a cap on it such as 48/day. Yep, that should do it.” — Javonni Brustow, editor of TheDCPundit.com and PopGlitz.com.

TV and the Mark Sanford affair

“TV today seems to be arguing today that Sanford’s affair was somehow ‘better’ than other sex scandals since he fell in love/engaged now #SC1.” –  Jessica Taylor, senior analyst and reporter at Rothenberg Political Report. Photo credit: this picture appeared in The Daily Caller.

Journo promotes his story for Autism Awareness Day

“For #Autism Awareness day, here is a story I did last year about my son, two presidents, love, guilt and parenthood.” — NJ‘s Ron Fournier on the story that he couldn’t have self-promoted any more unless he a) formally renamed himself Howard Kurtz and b) implanted Howard Kurtz‘s brain cavity inside his own. Oh and in case you somehow missed this one — and the nerve of you if you did — read here.

Sen. Manchin isn’t heartless about dead reality star 

Howeesha Kurtz (a.k.a. The Hill‘s Judy Kurtz) proves that Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) isn’t a total heartless prick this week. She sent the senator a question regarding the death of a MTV “Buckwild” reality show Manchin had denounced as trash. See what the senator had to say here.

Ezzy under “social pressure” to follow certain peeps on Twitter

“It’s kind of not great in D.C. I’ve tried to unfollow people before and they’ve gotten very mad at me.” — WaPo‘s Ezra Klein. “So it’s actually not worth unfollowing people to me, it creates a sort of social anger.” Please Ezra, let us back in to your feed! Slate‘s Dave Weigel, who has grown rather cranky as of late, we can do without. But you? We just know we’re missing out. Watch the rest of Klein and Brad Plumer‘s thoughts on Twitter usage here. Plumer’s insightful thought: He’s not sure Ezzy knows just what he wants from Twitter.

TV journo admits her desk is a mess

“OK, now I’m really admitting it: My desk is littered with old scripts, water bottles and coffee cups. Time to do something about it.” — CNN’s Erin McPike. Here’s to hoping the network newbie doesn’t wind up on a future episode of TLC’s “Hoarding: Buried Alive.”

Whoa, what?

Roll Call‘s Jonathan Strong has a freelance story on Rep. Steve Southerland (R-Fla.) in The Weekly Standard this week. Is it a one-time thing or what’s happening? Read here. Update: The piece was just freelance. Like many pubs, Strong had pre-approval from his bosses.

WaPo Adds Three Bloggers to Ezzy’s Beat

Come and knock on Ezzy’s door!  Ezra Klein, Fishbowl’s favorite liberal blogger is getting some roomies in the form of three new WaPo Financial bloggers: Suzy Khimm, Sarah Kliff and Brad Plumer.

Khimm joins WaPo from Mother Jones, where she covered Congress, politics and domestic policy. Previously a staff member at The New Republic, she has also contributed to the Economist, Newsweek, Slate, Foreign Policy, The Wall Street Journal Asia, the Christian Science Monitor and Los Angeles Times.

Kliff is leaving Politico to shack up with Ezzy and friends.  At Politico she covered how federal regulation, Congress and lobbying affect the implementation of health care reform.  She also was an author of Politico Pulse, a daily health policy briefing. Prior to Politico, Sarah was a staff writer at Newsweek, reporting on issues at the intersection of health policy and politics.

And last but not least is Brad Plumer, previously an associate editor at The New Republic, where he reported on the environment and energy issues and wrote TNR’s green blog, The Vine, for three years. Before that, he was an assistant Web editor at Mother Jones.

Only time will tell if four’s really a crowd.  Until then, congrats to Suzy, Sarah and Brad.  They begin later this month.
