“Well, first of all, the most important thing, to protect the American people. And as you said, you’ve got to base your decision and your policy on scientific evidence and scientific principles. Talking about health care workers coming back, they are at different levels of risk depending on their experience.”
“And you tailor the kinds of monitoring, passively, actively, direct, according to that kind of risk. The idea of a blanket quarantine for people who come back could possibly have a negative consequence of essentially disincentivizing people from wanting to go there. And the reason that’s important, Charlie, is because the best way to protect Americans is to stop the epidemic in Africa. And we need those health care workers to do that. So to put them in a position when they come back that no matter what, automatically they’re under quarantine can actually have unintended consequences. And that’s the reason why we’re concerned about that.”

Morning has spoken — MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski and CBS’s Gayle King usually spend their mornings talking alongside Joe Scarborough and Charlie Rose to television viewers. But the two spent a late morning recently talking with NYT‘s Philip Galanes over an early lunch. As Galanes notes, lunch comes mid-morning when your day starts at 3:30 a.m. The trio discussed the differences in dynamics between themselves and the co-hosts of Brzezinski’s “Morning Joe” and King’s “CBS This Morning.” They also talked about their favorite interviews they’ve done and about parenting, with Galanes guiding the conversation. Overall, it reads like a few friends chatting about work and life over brunch.
Why you should read it: Galanes is as much a part of the piece as King and Brzezinski, which makes for an quirky, entertaining dynamic. When he suggests Mika is just a sidekick to Joe, Gayle jumps in and says Mika is no “mouseburger.” Galanes’ interview offers glimpse into their lives outside the studio. Plus, bonus points on the headline: “For two female news anchors, morning has spoken.” Read more
Everyone knows the relationship between Politico and MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” crew is tight. Like really tight. Like Washington Times budget tight.
Politico Executive Editor Jim VandeHei and Chief Political Correspondent Mike Allen are regular guests on the program. They mention Politico stories incessantly. And show host Joe Scarborough has even had his own loosely-updated blog on Politico since the start of 2012. Occasionally, he also writes longer form opinion pieces posted to the front page.
Friday morning, however, Scarborough hopped over to Politico‘s main competitor in D.C: WaPo. At the same time, Allen playfully demeaned WaPo in Politico Playbook for being fashionably late on a story. ”WASH POST ON IT!,” his headline blared. “Front page TODAY (also leads homepage, in case ya missed everyone else’s stories the past couple days)” Allen linked to a WaPo story that took a deeper look at the dinner President Obama had with Senate Republicans.
For the last two months Scarborough and NYT columnist Paul Krugman have been fighting over whether the national debt really matters, via Scarborough’s show and their respective blogs at Politico and NYT. The two battled it out most recently on more neutral territory, Charlie Rose‘s show on PBS.
Krugman has gone back to his column and blog at NYT; Scarborough back to MSNBC and… WaPo.
In a Friday WaPo op-ed, Scarborough and Jeffrey D. Sachs, director of the Earth Institute, continued arguing that “deficits do matter.” Why not continue the argument on his tried and true platform at Politico? Read more
On Tuesday, October 11, Bloomberg and WaPo are hosting their first presidential debate of the 2012 campaign live at Dartmouth College. This is Bloomberg’s first presidential debate.
The focus: the economy. The format will be different than the others with candidates seated side-by-side at a round table facing the hosts and surrounded by audience members. Bloomberg organizers, in a release, say the format “will facilitate serious and substantive debate on issues of vital importance to the country.”
Debate moderators include Charlie Rose, WaPo political correspondent Karen Tumulty and Bloomberg TV White House correspondent Julianna Goldman. The background will not be silhouetted against a black background like a typical Rose program.
Participating candidates include Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, businessman Herman Cain, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, Texas Rep. Ron Paul, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum.
Details: The 8p.m. ET debate, which will be broadcast live on Bloomberg Television, Bloomberg Radio and WBIN-TV in New Hampshire, will be available to viewers across multiple digital platforms including livestream on Bloomberg.com, washingtonpost.com/debate and Bloomberg Mobile.
It was no shocker when NBC News announced that Antoine Sanfuentes would replace Mark Whitaker as their Washington Bureau Chief. After all, Sanfuentes was already second in command. Perhaps the most astonishing part of the press release was found in the obligatory biographical information included in all HR announcements. Surprisingly, Antoine’s career began as an intern for the same newsroom he now leads. In 1990 he landed a desk assistant gig and within five years made his way to the White House as a senior producer. Now 21 years after his humble beginnings as a D.A., Sanfuentes has become one of the network’s top executives.
“Everyone respects him because he rose up through the ranks, paid his dues, and understands this bureau and this network instinctively,” explained NBC’s Savannah Guthrie. “For him to become bureau chief made perfect sense – he’s one of us.”
Guthrie describes Antoine as a leader with “razor-sharp competitive instincts” – a view shared by most everyone at the bureau.
“Antoine brings a no-nonsense, ‘make it work’ mentality to the newsroom. He is incredibly knowledgeable, clever and resourceful – the benefit of decades of experience,” said Guthrie.
But it’s more than the network’s on-air talent that feels the love for Sanfuentes. It’s not unusual to find a D.A. hanging out in his office and he’s been known to keep in touch and offer career advice to former interns, long after they’ve completed their internships.
“Antoine is loyal, passionate and somebody who cares greatly about the future of NBC News in Washington and also the bureau’s employees – from the top talent to the midnight-shift maintenance worker,” said Luke Russert.
Besides the full, professional drum kit that resides in his office, Sanfuentes is the epitome of Washington newsman.
“Antoine’s heart is in the news business but his soul belongs to music. He’s an accomplished rock n’ roll and jazz drummer who may even show you his latest drum solo after a meeting about Capitol Hill coverage plans,” added Russert.
With such glowing endorsements, we couldn’t resist asking Antoine to do the FishbowlDC interview. Read it after the jump.
In a series of messages on Twitter, NJ‘s Major Garrett recalls getting relentlessly cracked on by Elizabeth Edwards, who died Tuesday of cancer.
“In ’04, Super Tuesday a.m. I failed to introduce myself to Elizabeth at elevators of campaign hotel…She ribbed me mercilessly that night. And she ribbed mercilessly thereafter…saying i was clueless and self-absorbed. Yes. She had me pretty well pegged.”
Even though Garrett’s now a print journo, the TV guy in him is still vibrant. Now Major has the touching and funny retelling of the incident in much greater elaboration on video. The video places him in a noir Charlie Rose-esque background.
It’s worth a watch. See here.

Washington awoke to a dark morning today with an unusual amount of lightening.
“I feel like sort of ghosts of Congress past are weighing in on this conversation this morning,” said C-SPAN host and President Susan Swain, who sat before a black backdrop – otherwise known as the storm.
“We have gone from CNBC prime time to the Charlie Rose show,” Scarborough cracked. As everyone chuckled, Klein laughed and tried to look behind himself without turning around (an impossible task) and replied, “You guys are making me feel like I want to turn around!”
Say hello to TWT‘s National Security reporter Eli Lake. He’s also a contributing editor to TNR. When I asked him where he grew up, he writes, “I was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the neighborhood of Germantown, where – as far as I know – there are no Germans.” Other Lake claims to fame: He has visited all three charter members of the Axis of Evil – Iraq, Iran and North Korea. He lived in Cairo between 2005 and 2006 where he served as the New York Sun‘s Middle East Bureau Chief. On a lighter note, he loves to Google himself.
