Whose Shoes: Revealed

We received a variety of guesses today that ranged from MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann to WaPo’s Carl Bernstein.

Two readers got it right when they wrote in Vanity Fair’s Christopher Hitchens, the owner of these loafers. We shot this picture on the sly at The Weekly Standard’s/Daily Caller’s Matt Labash’s book party the other night held at Daily Caller Editor-in-Chief Tucker and Susie Carlson’s lavish home.

The readers who guessed right: Ken Berard (@N_E_I) of Nuclear Energy Institute and Ben Bergman, asst. producer, NPR’s Morning Edition.

As always, thanks to all for playing. Should any of you want to send us a photograph of a journo’s shoes, send to fishbowldcATmediabistroDOTcom.

This 11-Year-Old Probably Has Gotten More Access Than You

Unless you’re the AP’s Jennifer Loven, 11-year-old Damon Weaver has probably gotten more questions in to President Obama than you have.

Weaver interviewed the President late last week at the White House, focusing, fittingly, on education. The young reporter from Florida even did a press avail on the South Lawn afterwards, appearing on the morning shows and cablers.

Weaver has quite the resume tape. He’s already interviewed politicos like Vice President (then presidential candidate) Joe Biden, Colin Powell and Caroline Kennedy, Hollywood stars like Samuel Jackson, Oprah Winfrey, Chris Tucker and has reversed the mic on some of our own, including David Gregory, Larry King, Megyn Kelly, Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein.

Looking for a fall intern? Little Weaver’s probably over-qualified.

DC’ers Honor Cronkite at Today’s Funeral

The funeral service for Walter Cronkite was held in NY today at St. Bartholomew Church. CBSNews.com had a live feed of the service.

Bob Schieffer, Bill Plante, Carl Bernstein, Brit Hume and Howard Kurtz (with a notebook and updating his Facebook status) were among some of the journos who traveled up from DC for the funeral.

TVNewser has a more extensive write-up of the service here.

In Memoriam: Mary Lou Forbes

Mary Lou Forbes, a Pulitzer-winning, groundbreaking journalist, has died after a brief battle with cancer. Mary Lou is credited with paving the way for many women to rise in the previously male-dominated journalism profession and she was a mentor to such greats as Carl Bernstein and Cal Thomas.

For the last 25 years, she has served as the Commentary Editor for The Washington Times. Her obit here.
