Best Quotes from the Sunday Shows – 7.6.14

Texas Gov. Rick Perry on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” : “The rule of law is that ‘The Constitution’ requires the United States to secure the border. And we’re not doing that. We haven’t done it for years. And we are paying a huge price.”

Sen. John McCain on the topic of Hillary Clinton on CBS News’ “Face the Nation” : “I respect her views. We have had disagreements on a number of issues. But I think it’s my job to work with every president if she, regrettably, attains the presidency.”

Also on “Face,” Sen. Lindsey Graham spoke on the threat of terrorism : “Al Qaeda’s not decimated. The groups operating in Pakistan and now Afghanistan are lethal. They’re growing. We’re about to shut down our ability to detect what they’re up to and hit them before they hit us. This literally is insane given the way the world has fallen apart.” Read more

Best Quotes from the Sunday Shows – 6.29.14

Sen. Joe Manchin on CBS’s “Face the Nation” with Bob Schieffer: “Our main goal right now is to protect our embassy and all the Americans that we have over there, and I think the President has every right, plus, he has the responsibility to do that.  I’m fine with that.  Do whatever it takes to protect our people, our embassy; we’re not going to be run out of that country.”

On the terror threat in Iraq, President Barack Obama told George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week” : “Now, we are spending a lot of time, and we have been for years, making sure we are improving intelligence to respond to that.  We have to improve our surveillance, reconnaissance, intelligence there.  Special Forces are going to have a role.  And there are going to be times where we take strikes against organizations that could do us harm.” Read more

Best Quotes from the Sunday Shows – 6.22.14

In a pre-recorded interview on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Norah O’Donnell sat down with President Barack Obama to discuss the threat of ISIS on the United States: ”But I think it’s important for us to recognize that ISIS is just one of a number of organizations that we have to stay focused on al-Qaeda in Yemen is still very active and we’re staying focused on that. In North Africa, you’re seeing organizations including Boko Haram that kidnapped all those young women that is extreme and violent. And this is going to be a global challenge and one that the United States is going to have to address but we’re not going to be able to address it alone. And as I said yesterday, what we can’t do is think that we’re just going to play whack-a-mole and send US troops occupying various countries wherever these organizations pop up. We’re going to have to have a more focused, more targeted strategy and we’re going to have to partner and train local law enforcement and military to do their jobs as well.”

On whether ISIS is more dangerous than al Qaeda, Sen. Marco Rubio told O’Donnell: “Well certainly, potentially more dangerous today than al Qaeda. They are an extremely radical group with increasing capabilities and a very clear design. They want to establish an Islamic caliphate in sections of both Syria and Iraq and other places, potentially Jordan is next at some point. And then they want to launch attacks in the exterior, external operations, including targeting our homeland. This is an extremely serious national security risk for the country if they were to establish that safe haven of operation.”

Former Vice President Dick Cheney on ABC’s “This Week:” “Now, I don’t intend any disrespect for the president, but I fundamentally disagree with him. I think he’s dead wrong in terms of the course he’s taken this nation and I think we’re in for big trouble in the years ahead because of his refusal to recognize reality and because of his continual emphasis upon getting the U.S. basically to withdraw from that part of the world.”

On the growth of ISIS, as a guest on “FOX News Sunday,” California Congressman Kevin McCarthy said in his first interview since winning the House Majority Leader position vacated by Eric Cantor: “I think the key part is lay out what we want to do for the entire region, to stop the momentum of this growth, we cannot allow them to continue to grow. By not acting, now, they have half a billion dollars. They’re growing each and every day…By our lack of action has allowed them to grow. So, build an overall strategy that moves that momentum backwards.”

On what he would do given the situation in Iraq, Sen. Rand Paul told CNN’s Candy Crowley on “State of the Union:” ”I think we have to understand first how got here and then we have to decide as a country where we are going…I think there’s chaos in the Middle East, and I think the chaos is because we have created a vacuum. Before the Iraq war, I think there was somewhat of a standoff between Sunni and Shiite, had been for maybe 1,000 years off and on…But now we have a chaotic situation. We have a vacuum. And I think one of the reasons why ISIS has been emboldened is because we have been arming their allies. We have been allied with ISIS in Syria. They have had a safe haven because we have been arming the rebels to keep Assad away from them.”

Best Quotes from the Sunday Shows, 5.11.14

“Next time, I’m going to have you in studio. I might have better control here.” – Host Candy Crowley, to Reps. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL) after a contentious back-and-forth over Benghazi and Obamacare. CNN’s “State of the Union”

“But you’re still blaming the President, Congressman, with all due respect, and Republicans haven’t moved.  I mean if you really want it, the Republican Party really wanted to do something right now, they could vote today on the House.  And you’re not doing that.” -Host Jorge Ramos laying into Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) over his party’s failure to move immigration reform legislation. Univision’s “Al Punto”

“I do.” -Sen. Marco Rubio on whether he thinks he’s ready to be President. ABC’s “This Week”

Hey Isn’t That…?

…every journalist in DC on “House of Cards” ????

FishbowlDC caught up with CNN’s Candy Crowley a few days back to chat a bit about her star turn in “HoC” But she was far from the only DC journo to mix it up with the Underwoods this season. We pinged a few more to see what the experience was like:

Morris Jones, News Channel 8

On being sworn to secrecy: “I’m in two different spoiler scenes and I had to sign a non disclosure agreement.  I guess if I revealed any details before the public release, I might be found floating in the Potomac!”

Scott Thuman, ABC 7

thuman

On what question he would ask Frank Underwood: “Easy. Are you looking for a new press guy?”

Julianna Goldman, Bloomberg News

On watching the first season: “The cast was a guest of Bloomberg’s at the White House Correspondents Dinner. I hadn’t seen the show and everyone kept coming up to the actors to talk about the season. So, I binged and basically watched the entire season on a transatlantic flight last summer. I then felt very dark inside.”

Major Garrett, CBS News

On which character he would interview: “President Garrett Walker…My first question: How could you despoil the regal name Garrett with such a weak and vacillating approach to the presidency?”

Hey, Isn’t that…

CNN’s Candy Crowley in this episode of “House of Cards?”

CNNSOTUHOC

BTW, we asked Candy recently (you know, cuz we’re tight like that) who from the “HOC” cast would she most want to interview in real life, and, perhaps unsurprisingly, she chose Frank Underwood.

“But I would want part of the interview to be a sit-down with him and Claire,” she told FBDC. “I am fascinated by evil people.”

And when asked if she was a fan of the show, she gave us an only-in-Washington reply:

“There are people who aren’t fans?”

Congrats on the cameo Candy! We predict this is the beginning of a promising career in television!

FBDC Tweeterboard: Washington Anchors

Yesterday we took a look at the social standing of the DC publications, now it’s time to turn our attention to those network anchors who call our fair city home. FishbowlDC took a look at the Twitter followers of some of DC’s biggest television personalities, and here’s what we found:

The takeaways: 1) Rankings are unchanged from last month -with the average rate of growth hovering around 2%. 2) The biggest under performer though, was Howard Kurtz, who added only 204 new followers over the course of January. 3) Top performers were Greta VanSusteren with 13,301 new followers, Bret Baier with 10,947, George Stephanopoulos with 9,634, and Chris Matthews with 8,814.

1.) George Stephanopoulos -ABC** – 1,926,327 (+0.5% month over month)
2.) David Gregory -NBC – 1,648,098 (+0.21%)
3.) Wolf Blitzer -CNN – 690,783 (+0.71%)
4.) Bret Baier -FOX – 445,511 (+2.5%)

**Brian and George are both married to New York, but cheat with DC on the weekends. Also, George is on network TV quite literally every day, which other anchors in this category are not. Chris is based in DC, but does not have a Twitter account. His show, “Fox News Sunday”, does, however, have 76,775 followers, a 3.1% increase from last month.

FBDC FaceRace: Washington Anchors

facebook_logo-300x300Yesterday we took a look at the social standing of the DC publications, now it’s time to turn our attention to those network anchors who call our fair city home. FishbowlDC analyzed the Facebook pages of some of DC’s biggest television personalities and the results are revealing. First off, the numbers here are a bit more complicated than with Twitter, since some anchors have well-developed personal pages, while others have clearly spent their time developing their shows’ pages. Our analysts decided the fairest way to provide objective rankings was to combine the followers/likes of anchors’ personal fan pages with those of the shows they host. Below are the rankings of Washington-based anchors based on this combined number.

The takeaway: Chris Matthews is the big winner here. George Stephanopoulos technically bests him, but bear in mind that Stephanopoulos is on network TV nearly every day -a fact which no doubt boosts his personal brand. If you compare their DC-based shows side by side, Matthews is way ahead. Moreover, Stephanopoulos is not actually a full-time DC anchor. He spends most of his time in NYC. 

1.) George Stephanopoulos** – 271,633 (Personal – 229,775 followers; “This Week” – 41,858 likes*)
2.) Chris Matthews - 228,810 (Personal – 22,266 likes*; “Hardball” – 206, 544 likes)
3.) Greta VanSusteren - 208,596 (Personal – 198,662 likes; “On the Record” – 9,934 likes*)
4.) Bret Baier 201,125 (Personal – 196,594 likes; “Special Report” – 4,531 likes*)
5.) David Gregory - 168,495 (Personal – 20,288 likes; Meet The Press – 148,207 likes)
6.) Gwen Ifill - 161,851 (Personal – 4,822 likes*; “News Hour” – 157,029 likes)
7.) Howard Kurtz - 128,427 (Personal – 127,000 followers; “Media Buzz” – 1,427 likes)
8.) Jake Tapper - 95,760 (Personal – 92,310 followers; “The Lead” – 3,450 likes)
9.) Wolf Blitzer - 86,866 (Personal – 9,850 likes*; “Situation Room” – 77,016 likes)
10.) Chris Wallace - 68,871 (Personal – none available; “Fox News Sunday” – 68,871 likes)
11.) Candy Crowley - 54,701 (Personal – 9,637 likes*; “State of the Union” – 45,064 likes)
12.) Andrea Mitchell - 53,828 (Personal – none available; “Andrea Mitchell Reports” – 53,828 likes*)
13.) Chuck Todd - 40,013 (Personal – 654 likes*; “Daily Rundown” – 39,368 likes*)
14.) Bob Schieffer - 36,877 (Personal – 10,669 likes*; “Face the Nation” – 26,208 likes*)

The takeaway: David Gregory is by far the biggest DC anchor on Twitter. He has more than twice as many followers as  Wolf Blitzer, who is on-air five times a week, and almost as many as George Stephanopoulos who hosts the #1 morning show as well as a Sunday show.

1.) George Stephanopoulos** – 1,916,693 (ABC)
2.) David Gregory – 1,644,571 (NBC)

8.) Chris Matthews – 223,796 (MSNBC)

14.) Bob Schieffer – 51,292 (CBS)
15.) Judy Woodruff – 15,884 (PBS)
16.) Chris Wallace** – 0 (FOX)

Chris is based in DC, but does not have a Twitter account. His show, “Fox News Sunday”, does,however, have 74,457 followers.

BuzzFeed Wonders: Whither the Sunday Show?

Notorious over-GIFer Dorsey Shaw at BuzzFeed thinks that Sunday Shows, as an institution, are doing it all wrong. He’s done some thinking on the matter and come up with some suggestions:

The Sunday show might be here to stay, but the routine of hosts spending the week prepping for one single hour-long show has got to go.

While they wait for the news cycle to decide their show topics, these shows could start producing some quality “web extra” content for the cord-cutters that isn’t just a 10-minute interview with someone who didn’t make the cut for the real show. They could also integrate some more original reporting during the week that then becomes part of the Sunday show.

Finally, the hosts of Sunday shows could actually interact with their audience. Have you seen some of their Twitter feeds? Chris Wallace doesn’t even have a real account. Candy Crowley has tweeted three times since Nov. 24. To his credit, NBC’s David Gregory is actually very active on Twitter and does neat things like#TweetThePress.

We tend to agree. More tweets from Bob Schieffer please! Preferably with selfies included. There is one journo out there, though, that Shaw believes might just be able to save the Sunday Show. Who is it? Find out after the jump…
