50 Politicos To Watch, Including Some Journos Too

Politico issued a glossy mag today of 50 politicos to watch, finally answering the question, what exactly is a politico? “A politico is a participant in and/or an especially avid devotee of the theater of politics,” therefore including a few of our own journos.

NBC chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd, WaPo‘s Eugene Robinson, Foreign Policy‘s Laura Rozen and WaPo‘s Charles Krauthammer all made the Politicos of the Fourth Estate cut. Todd even got a full page pic in the mag.

The issue also included a Q&A with a Washington veteran, former ABC White House correspodent Sam Donaldson. An excerpt:

On media coverage of the Obama White House:

“Some people say, ‘Oh, what’s happened to the White House press corps? They’ve fallen down.’ I don’t think that’s true. Here’s a man who, like some other presidents, came into Washington walking on water, in a figurative sense. Some of them do. But then you start noticing their feet are wet, and of course, a few of them drown before they get across the tidal basin. You can point to a lot of mistakes he’s made, but they’ve been minor. It’s hard to say, ‘Well, the White House press corps should have really given him what for.’”

More from Donaldson here.

NEWSPAPERS

Are newspapers less liked than airlines?

NYT: Newspaper employees no longer dominate fellowships.

TV

As noted on TVNewser, CNN’s Anderson Cooper said his “teabagging” comment was “stupid, silly.” He spoke at UCLA Sunday and was asked about the comment. “I think it’s an incorrect statement to say I was, in any way, trying to disparage legitimate protests,” said Cooper.

Rush Limbaugh has challenged MSNBC to go 30 days without saying his name. Limbaugh says the cable network is trying to “build its ratings on my back.”

ONLINE

NEWS NOTES

E&P reports AP is quietly offering buyouts that include $500 for each year of service and increased pension benefits to several hundred veteran employees, according to AP and a News Media Guild statement.

Politico’s Jonathan Martin had the scoop this week that John Coale, “Washington-area Democratic donor and onetime adviser” to Sarah Palin and Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren‘s husband suggested Palin help pay down some of Hillary Clinton’s campaign debt.

Speaking of Greta… Nikki Schwab of U.S. News & World Report reported this week that blogger and Air America Radio host Ana Marie Cox suffered an allergic reaction on the train, and Van Susteren jumped in to save her. “If she hadn’t been there, I don’t know what would have happened. It would have been a thousand times worse,” Cox said.

Who is President Obama’s biggest critic? Politico says it might be columnist Charles Krauthammer.

AWARDS

CNN’s Christiane Amanpour and Candy Crowley and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow are among the honorees of the Women’s Media Center’s first annual WMC Media Awards. Check out the release here.

You’ll see this everywhere today… Jon Stewart ripped CNBC’s Jim Cramer on last night’s Daily Show. You can read about it here, watch it here and check out TVNewser’s live blogging of the show here.

On MSNBC Wednesday, Andrea Mitchell agreed with Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) that the media is partially to blame for President Obama’s staffing difficulties by pleading guilty to “gotcha journalism.” “You’re right, and we plead guilty because this culture right now of gotcha has gotten completely out of control,” Mitchell said. Check out the clip here on HuffPost.

Andrea’s interview with Frank earned her the label of “butt boy” from Rush Limbaugh Thursday, reports HuffPost. Listen to that clip here.

In memoriam, from DCRTV: Dr. Thomas T. Goldsmith, Jr., one of the last important figures from the old DuMont television network, has died at the age of 99. DC’s Channel 5/ WTTG, once part of the DuMont network, is named from Goldsmith’s initials. He was the chief of research for DuMont. Over the years, WTTG was owned by Metromedia and later Fox.
