How FNC’s Hume Handles Haters

journohatemail

Members of the media have a variety of methods for dealing with rampant online hatred gusting their way. Some ignore, some retweet, some engage, some block. See how Fox News’ Brit Hume handled an insult last night.

A little surprising he even engaged. Read more

Things that make you go huh?

“the H is O” — CNN’s Jake Tapper. To which a follower wondered, “The W the F does that mean?” TPM”s Igor Bobic got in on it, saying, “V to the izz-A.” Which caused Politico‘s Juana Summers to remark, “Thank you for going there.”

Washingtonians cranky?

“I think everyone in Washington needs a nap. #crankypeople.” — NPR health reporter Julie Rovner.

Unknown-2SHAME ON THE WHITE HOUSE MEDIA!

“Questions from WH press corps are pathetic. As of this moment, not a single tough or challenging inquiry.” — FNC’s Brit Hume. Colleague Bret Baier concurred, saying, “Agreed–Nothing at all.” Where’s Ed Henry at a time like this? Ed’s comments, at least on Twitter, after the presser: “Admin official says while President is open to a deficit panel, veto threat came b/c GOP version would only touch spending & not revenue. After President said at newser he’d accept a process like creating a new deficit panel to give GOP cover, WH issues veto threat on … panel.” And then he shot a beautiful picture of Washington. In fairness to Henry, Obama never called on him at the press conference. See his beautiful sky shot after the jump…

Reporter can’t help but wonder…

“I wonder if Capitol Police officers secretly enjoyed arrested the guys partially responsible for them not getting paid right now.” — National Journal reporter Alex Seitz-Wald.

Journo eats burger for breakfast

“Punching Saturday in the mouth by wolfing down a mushroom-onion burger slathered in whole grain mustard and Sriracha #breakfastochampions” — Roll Call‘s HOH writer Warren Rojas at 9:32 a.m. on Saturday. Sriracha, by the way, is a hot sauce named after a coastal city in Thailand. It’s made from ripe chilies and garlic.

And now, Bible wisdom from Brit Hume’s wife…

MARTIN: “Nelson Mandela is in critical condition. Please pray for God’s will.”

COX: “I pray for the willingness to accept it…”

Afternoon Chatter

Quotes of the Day

“I think the press is thin-skinned. They’re good at dishing it out and they’re lousy at taking it. …What they’re getting is a dose of medicine that they dish out with politicians everyday.” — Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” this morning in reference to Attorney General Eric Holder hosting an off-the-record meeting with the media.

Important Q to Ponder: “Is the @nytimes saying they won’t talk to public officials off the record? Because I’m pretty sure they do every day.” — TIME Senior National Correspondent Michael Grunwald.

Uh oh.

“I think I just got propositioned on Facebook from a woman in Africa.” — Don Irvine, Chairman of Accuracy in Media.

Story pitch that never came to fruition

“As an intern at @rollcall, I pitched a story on all the politics & journalism related bars to @brunodebbie. Never finished it.” — Politico‘s Byron Tau.

Journo tells dad not to call C-SPAN

“I’ll be in the hot seat on @cspanwj at 8:30 live from Yahoo’s DC bureau. Watch here: cs.pn/e1vwvH (Dad, please don’t call in.)” — Yahoo! News’ Chris Moody.

Anthony Weiner Dick Jokes Part I

“Anthony Weiner still a guy who showed his dick to strangers, Politico reports.” — HuffPost‘s Arthur Delaney on Politico’s Maggie Haberman‘s Weiner piece, which doesn’t quite say that. Read here.

Anthony Weiner Dick Jokes Part II

What’s a story about ex-Rep. Weiner without a penis metaphor? Haberman’s lede:

In the week since he took the New York City mayoral race by storm, Anthony Weiner has delighted in the media circus he single-handedly created. He has mixed it up with reporters and taunted longtime adversaries in the same manner that made him a liberal lightning rod in Congress.

Think you’re having a rough day? Here’s a story alert from ABC7: “One man is dead and dozens of cats have been transported to a local animal shelter after a house fire in Herndon.”

Homeless Man Says He’s Brit Hume’s Son

By Betsy Rothstein and Austin Price

A graying homeless man with an admitted history of mental illness set up shop in Dupont Circle Wednesday afternoon with an elaborate boombox and speaker system. “I love to dance!” he said, getting his groove on amid a sticky Washington heatwave.

So who is he and what’s he doing here?

Adjacent to the stereo speakers and propped up against one of the ledges that surround the fountain was a handwritten sign on a piece of cardboard that contained two scrawled email addresses — his own and presumably that of Fox News anchor Brit Hume.

Here’s where things get dicey. The man claims to be Louis Hume, the son of the journalist. He says he’s not Brit Hume’s biological son, but that Hume raised him in every way that matters. He even has a birth certificate (as pictured here) to attempt to prove his claim and named Brit Hume’s first wife, Clare Jacobs Stoner, as the woman who raised him and his “biological aunt.”

Dressed in cream-colored shorts, a bright white T-shirt that reads, “Help the Homeless” and worn sneakers, Louis (not likely his real name) was dripping with sweat as he pried himself away from dancing for a brief interview.

“He taught me all the proper ways to live, which I paid little attention to,” he said of Brit Hume. “I’ve led a very wild life, I guess you could say. God told me recently that I had to start telling people about meeting him. I guess he doesn’t like the idea.”

He continued, wistfully, “It seems like forever since I’ve seen him. I lived out West. But yeah, he’s my dad. I met God. God gave me a ride, like a three, four, five hour drive. I want to tell the story and be on a lie detector machine so people know I ain’t lying about it. But I’m mostly up here just preaching the gospel.”

“Louis Hume” said a few months ago he tried to camp out down by the Fox News studios on North Capitol Street to try to see his “father.” But he said cops chased him off. “I went to Fox News and I said ‘Okay, well listen, my Dad’s working up there. You go tell him to come down here and tell me to leave and I will.’ So they relayed the message up to him,” he said. “My Dad told security, ‘I don’t have a son, my son died.’ So he was saying, basically, I’m not his son anymore, I don’t know.”

This story is heartbreaking on a variety of levels. Read more

Quotes of the Day

Reflection on WHCD’s past

“You know you are old if you can remember when the White House Correspondents Dinner was just a dinner in a hotel basement.” — WaPo‘s Karen Tumulty.

A polite and impolite view of Politico‘s Leibo piece

“Not a reflexive @politico hater by any means but the Allen/Vandehei piece on @MarkLeibovich sure bears out his thesis of DC’s awfulness.” — The Hill‘s Associate Editor Niall Stanage. Then there’s Michael Cohen, a columnist for The Guardian, who wasn’t so kind. He wrote, “Dear Washington DC: This article is kind of the reason people don’t like you.” Read the Politico piece here.

Number of Weiner jokes made National Journal‘s Political Pursuit game last night at the Newseum: At least 2. One was made by an unknown member of the audience; the other by WaPo‘s Chris Cillizza, who was on the winning team of journliasts that included WaPo‘s Paul Kane, NYT‘s Carl Hulse, Roll Call‘s Shira Toeplitz and The Cook Report’s Amy Walter. More on the event later…

And now a note from our Spiritual Counselor Sophia Nelson, of theGrio.com and Essence: “We are spiritual beings having an earthly experience. Protect your spirit. Feed your spirit. Guard your spirit. Bless your spirit.”

Yeah, riiiight: “It’s definitely smaller this year.” — SKDknickerbocker’s Doug Thornell on this year’s Garden Brunch hosted by Tammy Haddad, SKD’s Hilary Rosen and others.

AnonymASS Tipster of the Week: “Hey Peter Ogburn. While you humiliate some person who no one knows, same question can be asked of you: who the hell are you? Or who should care about the mostly puerile things you write? Advice? Find something else to do with your life.” Dear ASS: He is Peter Ogburn, THAT’s who. Who are you? Oh, right, the person who is too cowardly to attach your name to your note.

Journo Love

“Follow by the far the funniest @politico: @LucyConstance.” — Politico‘s Alexander Burns.

And finally, a morning Bible lesson from FNC’s Brit Hume‘s wife, Kim Hume: “A sound heart is life to the body, But envy is rottenness to the bones. Proverbs 14:30 (NKJV)”

Morning Chatter

Quotes of the day

SHOWOFF: “Sunset over the Gulf of Mexico in Boca Grande, FL, 2/28/2013″ — FNC’s Brit Hume.

Conventional wisdom

Angry Ass Convo Between Two Journos

The conversation is between The Weekly Standard’s John McCormack and BuzzFeed’s Andrew Kaczynski.

John McCormack: “Politico article on abortion issue includes two quotes–one from Planned Parenthood and one, for balance, from ACLU”

Andrew Kaczynski: “@McCormackJohn Lot of balance in those Weekly Standard Chuck Hagel stories.”

John McCormack: “@BuzzFeedAndrew Well, at least they’re more balanced than Buzzfeed’s articles on gay marriage. Also: We don’t pretend we’re not ideological.”

Menendez: No more hooker q’s for now

“No questions for Menendez about his controversy. Seems he’s reached a point where he can talk about other things.” — Politico‘s Ginger Gibson on Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.).

Producer is “all screwed up” when walking

“After living in London I never know which way to look for cars. Totally screwed me up.” — FNC Senate Producer Kara Rowland.

A little help from your friends

NYT‘s political correspondent Nick Confessore: “Packing and moving an apartment is like waiting for the Time-Warner guy, in hell, for infinity.”

NYT‘s Washington Bureau Chief David Leonhardt: “@nickconfessore Just wait until you’re simultaneously unpacking and waiting for the Time Warner guy.”

Goofball FLOTUS pool report

“FLOTUS pool report from @jestei ‘I am sorry I am unable to provide you with the lid, as FLOTUS has none. (Stock pots, maybe.)’” — NYT‘s Jonathan Weisman. A “lid” in pool reportese marks the conclusion of a day’s formal events.

Necessary Tweet of the Day

“I’m going to try stovetop smoking salmon tonight. (I decided I needed more alliterative cooking processes.)” — Slate and NYT‘s Farhad Majoo.
