CNN’s Dana Bash was reunited with some long lost friends at the Donny and Marie concert on Tuesday night. According to Carl Hulse of The New York Times, the chief congressional correspondent met up with the sibling stars, Donny and Marie Osmond, at the National Theater following the show.

Dana, a lifelong fan of the duo, attended one of their concerts all the way back in 1979 with her brother at the age of 8 (seen in the picture on the left).

Hulse, who happened to be with Dana when she found out she had backstage passes to the event, says that based on her reaction, ”you would have thought the Beatles were back.”

After 35 years, that’s some serious fandom…

NYT D.C. Bureau All Shook Up

David Leonhardt is out as The New York Times DC Bureau Chief and Carolyn Ryan is in, according to Dylan Byers:

Leonhardt, who was appointed bureau chief shortly after Jill Abramson became executive editor, served in that position for just two years. A Pulitzer Prize-winning economic columnist, Leonhardt was seen as a gifted writer with little editing experience, and thus an unnatural fit to lead the Times’ bureau.

Leonhardt is now expected to oversee a column that will focus on data and polling, effectively replacing Nate Silver, the famed statistician who decamped to ESPN earlier this year. One source described Leonhardt as the paper’s “next Nate Silver,” another as “the new Nate.”

A memo from Executive Editor Jill Abramson also details “an early morning news tip sheet that sets up the Washington day for our readers, much as the popular New York Today report does for our readers in the metropolitan area.” Carl Hulse will be the Managing Editor of the tip sheet and also Chief Washington Correspondent. Former Chief Washington Correspondent David Sanger will now cover cyber warfare and national security. Both Leonhardt’s column and Hulse’s tip sheet have yet to be named. All of these changes will be effective December 15th.

Full memo after the jump.

NYT Taps Coral Davenport for Climate Beat

Coral DavenportWashington-based Coral Davenport will take over the climate and energy beat at The New York Times from John M. Broder. Washington Bureau Chief David Leonhardt explains in a memo posted on Times columnist Andy Revkin‘s Tumblr. Hat tip to Playbook:

Paul Volpe and Bill Hamilton used to work with her. John Broder competed with her. Carl Hulse knew her as a Hill reporter. I was simply one of her readers, and Elisabeth met her only recently. But we all had the same reaction: Coral Davenport is the perfect person to replace John as our climate-and-energy reporter in Washington. After a lunch interview with her, Elisabeth came back to the bureau and pronounced: “We should hire her immediately.”

Hire her we have.

Coral will start next month, joining us from National Journal, where she has written one great story after another. She writes fast and smart for the Web. She breaks news. She writes enterprise and magazine pieces that you read all the way to the end. Above all, she sees climate as a story about everything – politics, economics, foreign policy, science and, of course, the environment.

Before joining National Journal, Coral worked for Congressional Quarterly, Politico and the Daily Hampshire Gazette, in Massachusetts. She has also spent three years as a journalist in Greece. The daughter of a Foreign Service officer, she grew up in Korea, Japan and Greece. Food Club alert: She is a devoted cook who has written many a restaurant review.

Coral arrives the first week in December.

Atlantic’s Molly Ball Goes to This Town and Gets Ignored by WaPo’s Sally Quinn

When it came time to plan a party for the release of his new book, This Town, Mark Leibovich struggled with how to throw a party for a book about the senselessness of Washington parties without it being a huge display of irony.

So to make sure everything was kosher, as The Atlantic’s Molly Ball reports, Leibovich invited “everyone” and served hors d’oeuvres from a table in the back of an under-air-conditioned room. Ball writes a cleverly detailed first-person account of the party, including Washington figures she spotted there, conversations she had and a review of Carl Hulse’s maraca-playing skill (spoiler alert: it was “pretty awful”).

Ball noticed that “Bob (Barnett) or Mikey (Allen) or Tammy (Haddad)” were not present. This probably has something to do with the fact that Leibo paints an especially unflattering portrait them in the book, which was released last week.

Ball also recalls how her conversation with WaPo’s Karen Tumulty was hijacked by Tumulty’s colleague Sally Quinn. Ball writes that she tried to contribute to the conversation the two began to have about Anthony Weiner, “but Quinn does not turn toward me even once, and continues to converse with Tumulty as though I were not there.”

In response to this, many journalists took to Twitter to share their stories of also being ignored by Quinn.

Politico’s Ben White tweeted, “I’ve been #SallyQuinned this way too. So pathetic,” to which Ball replied, “That’s the difference between me & you. I found it totally amusing.”

Dylan Beyers, also of Politico, tweeted, “I recall giving her a very dirty look.”

NPR freelancer Lizzie O’Leary recalled her interaction (or lack of) with Quinn, as well.

“I, too, have been ignored by Sally Quinn. One of my prouder moments,” O’Leary tweeted.

Perhaps Ball summed it up best in a tweet to AP‘s Adam Goldman.

“I mean, she is Sally Fucking Quinn. She doesn’t need to pay attention to folks like me.”
