Journo Scratches Running With Bulls Off Bucket List

At this point we don’t question Yahoo! NewsChris Moody‘s nerve. But we do wonder about his sanity. Read more

Marty’d: The Chris Moody Edition

It’s been a while since we’ve checked in with Marty Rudolf, our favorite News Junkie Online. Day in and day out, Marty shares interesting stories and tries interacting with various tweeters about The News. Marty seems to have toned down his Twitter feed for the time being, by the way. I personally had a discussion with him about him tweeting pictures of naked ladies in a stunt he was referring to as “Ta-Ta Tuesdays.”

Our most recent Marty fascination comes from the relationship he has formed with Yahoo’s Chris Moody. Read more

Morning Chatter

HEY, IT HAPPENS: Journo’s mother-in-law confuses BuzzFeed for “BizzJizz”

“Confused Cuban mother-in-law after meeting our friends from @BuzzFeed: ‘Those reporters from that cat site BizzJizz are so nice.’”  — Yahoo! News’ Chris Moody.

BOLD STEP-NOTICE THE TOES: “My weight. One year ago today I was 118 and felt fat. I feel good about this actually. #obsessed” — MSNBC “Morning Joe” Co-host Mika Brzezinksi.

Intriguing job opportunity in Cairo

“I’m looking for a fabulous videojournalist based in Cairo. Email me at anup[dot]kaphle[at]washpost with few links to your previous work.” — Anup Kaphle, digital foreign editor, WaPo.

In corned beef news…

“Hey @BuzzFeedBen Having lunch at Shapiro’s in Indy, where the corned beef is still respectable and the wifi ain’t half bad” — Politico‘s new longform magazine writer Glenn Thrush.

Correspondent encounters random act of kindness

“Had a less than stellar morning, then ran into a #GMW viewer at CVS who gave me a really nice compliment. Day made! Thank you stranger! :) ” — ABC7′s Jummy Olabanji.

Important Q to Ponder: “Does @mboyle1 do anything but troll actual reporters?” — TIME‘s Dan Hirschhorn, who formerly worked at Politico.

Even More Important Q to Ponder: ‘What’s the deal on ‘pretzel rolls?’ Suddenly it’s the bun of choice for everything.” — CBS White House radio reporter Mark Knoller.

Reporter speaks directly to Egyptian generals

“Hey Egyptian generals, not gonna tell you how to run your country, but you’re supposed to protect your civilians, not kill them. Just saying.” — Washington Examiner‘s Justin Green at 7:28 a.m.

Politico Playbook Publish Time: 9:34 a.m.

GOP consultant has strong feelings about Graham challenger

“I’ve never heard of Lindsey Graham’s primary challenger before but this statement just screams ignorant jackass.” — Brian Walsh, partner with Singer Bonjean Strategies, who links to this story in HuffPost stating that the challenger says Graham is a community organizer for the Muslim Brotherhood. (Honestly we just wanted an excuse to run the nun picture again.)

Chef Geoff examines upshot of a haircut

“The good thing about a haircut is less gray hair. The bad part is the ratio stays the same. #40+” — Chef Geoff Tracy (a.k.a. Mr. Norah O’Donnell).

Reporter confuses “Morning Joe” for feeling tanked

“Thought I woke up drunk but it was just that I’ve been watching Morning Joe since 6am.” — Buzzfeed‘s Dorsey Shaw.

Convo Between Two Journos

This morning’s conversation is between founding co-editor of DCist Michael Grass and WaPo’s Tim Craig. This one will keep you on the edge of your seat.

GRASS: “A friend who moved to DC from overseas has been having a problem with DC water making hair fall out.”

CRAIG: “How do u know from water?”

GRASS: “A hairdresser told him that mass hair loss is not unheard of for people going from untreated water systems to D.C. water.” And…”He’s headed to Cairo tomorrow to cover protests so we’ll see if the problem continues upon his return to D.C.”

Journos Get Trumped

Maybe someone needs to introduce @realDonaldTrump to Twitter’s reply button, because apparently he’s been responding to reporters’ tweets with handwritten notes.

The latest came last night to Huffington Post’s Sam Stein after he wondered on Twitter if a This Week interview with Trump was “performance art.” Trump’s note in response, which Stein posted to Twitter (of course) said, “Perhaps Sam – But it sure gave them good ratings! Best Wishes Donald Trump.”

Stein isn’t the only who’s received a handwritten Trump note, either.

Morning Chatter

TOO SOON? “Found this while cleaning out some files today. Heh” — Ben Freed, who was fired as Editor-in-Chief of DCist this week for defying a boss’s orders about spiking a freelance story he wrote for BuzzFeed. Earlier in the day Wednesday Freed wrote, “I appreciate all the kind tweets, DMs, and emails. I thought @ErikWemple’s piece about what happened was totally fair.” Of course he thought it was “fair.” WaPo‘s Wemple defended the reporter who defied a directive from a boss by discussing standards set by the Washington City Paper, which is all well and good but for the fact that Freed was not fired for freelancing; he also no longer works for WCP. Wemple left a gaping hole in his story on Freed, jumping right from the publisher, Jake Dobkin, asked for the BuzzFeed story to be spiked to… “It ran.” Good going! But why should details matter to Wemple, who picks and chooses whom he defends based on an elusive criteria that’s hard to comprehend. He recently gave quite the easy time to a “publisher” who invented a story because she wished it was true. What’s not to like? Wemple later posted a letter from Freed which solved the mystery he could have clarified in his original post seeing as the letter from Freed circulated well before Wemple’s breaking story published. Freed wrote, “While the feedback on the piece has been largely positive, Jake had asked me to tell BuzzFeed to spike the article, but they and I went ahead with the decision to run it. I knew Jake would not be pleased, but I did not think this would be his recourse.” They and I? Hmmm so nice of Wemple to defend Freed on purposefully defying his boss based on standards at a publication where both he and Freed previously worked.

Workplace weirdness

“The co-worker who doesn’t want me following his twitter, follows ME on twitter! And we kind of are friends. That is why it’s weird.” — ABC7′s Stephen Tschida.

Reporters fall prey to goat pitch

“Congressional cemetery goat bounce piece: Reporters more susceptible to press releases in August.” — CNN’s Zach Wolf. Speaking of goat stories…“ITK: Goats graze the Congressional Cemetery…which leads me to this uber important q: Do goats “bahh?” Just sheep?” — The Hill‘s Judy Kurtz, who links to this story. The Hill’s Associate Editor Niall Stanage replied, saying,  “I believe they bleat, officially. And thank you for provoking me to Google ‘noise Goats make.’” And Yahoo! News‘s Chris Moody: “I got hit with poison ivy while chasing goats around the Congressional Cemetery. WORTH IT.”

TMI?

“Many have asked about Twitter’s verification process. Not too difficult, though urine test was embarrassing.” — “Wheel of Fortune” host Pat Sajak.

Words to Live By

“Give us your tired, your weary, your Zuckers.” — Mother Jones reporter Tim Murphy.

Reporter shares slice of life

“My 7 y/o in preparation for married life always tells me: ‘Daddy I really don’t like being asked how my day was.’”

Journo admits confusing actresses

“I mistook Glenn Close for Meryl Streep at Dem Nat’l convention in LA once. I was mortified, she laughed. Can relate.” — Albuquerque Journal Washington Bureau Chief Michael Coleman, who links to this post in which a fan confuses Matt Damon and Mark Wahlberg. “Humble and hilarious, we just gained more respect for Marky Mark,” writes HuffPost in a post that’s neither humble nor hilarious.

Politico Playbook Publish Time: 9:01 a.m.

Another view of This Town

“Working my way thru #ThisTown, but it’s a grind. Are the only people in ‘this town’ Democrats & @JohnMcCain (which, you know, close enough)?” — NJC’s Hannah Jackman.

Afternoon Chatter

JOURNO LOVE: “This CQ Roll CAll photo of Boehner, Reid, McConnell and Pelosi is fantastic.” — WaPo‘s Aaron Blake. The photograph was shot by CQ Roll Call‘s Douglas Graham.

Weinerlicious Convo Between Two Journos

This afternoon’s conversation is between CQ Roll Call’s Daniel Newhauser and Politico’s Jake Sherman.

SHERMAN: “I thought it was weird when Anthony Weiner used to park illegally outside my apartment near U Street.”

NEWHAUSER: “Why was he at your apartment? Got something to tell us?”

SHERMAN: “Was my neighbor.”

Important Q to Ponder: “Wondering: Has there ever been a man who managed such epic sex scandals while apparently not having any actual sex?” — TPM‘s Josh Marshall.

Weiner presser explodes with Washington reaction

“Lines you hear all the time at DC bars: ‘Specifically your health care rants were a huge turn on.’– TIME Washington Bureau Chief Michael Scherer.

“What I did was wrong. This behavior is behind me, naked, bending me ovDAMMIT, it happened again.” — TPM‘s Brian Beutler.

“As I told everyone once before, Wiener is a sick puppy who will never change-100% of perverts go back to their ways. Sadly, there is no cure.” — Dr. Donald Trump.

“Quick poll: would you prefer to get rick-roll’d with pics from anthony weiner or geraldo from now on? Your choice.” — Yahoo! News’ Chris Moody.

Aaaand….the voices of reason

“Anthony Weiner appears to have some serious emotional issues that are not going to be helped by becoming mayor of New York.” — Politico‘s Roger Simon.

“This shit’s intense.” — Executive Editor of Business Insider Joseph Weisenthal.

“Weiner Ear Poison”: “Waiting to tape a CNN segment, I just spent 30 minutes listening to talk about The Royal Baby™, followed by Lanny Davis on Weiner #EarPoison” — Guardian‘s Glenn Greenwald.

Journos Looking Out for Huma (JLOH)

“Huma. Be serious. Leave him. Now.” — Newsweek/Daily Beast columnist Michael Tomasky.

“Just curious how many times this has to happen before I am no longer required to be SO SYMPATHETIC to Huma. 5? 10? 20?” — TNR‘s Isaac Chotiner, who is not yet a member of JLOH.

“Huma you gonna believe? Me or or your lying eyes?” — CBS Political Director John Dickerson.

“Divorce this schmuck, Huma.” — Washington Examiner‘s Justin Green.

“For the women out there excusing Weiner by saying ‘all men cheat,’ it’s a shame that you surround yourself with crappy men.” — Conservative radio correspondent Dana Loesch.

“Something in me wishes wronged political wives would start asking themselves WWJD? What Would Jenny (Sanford) Do?” — WaPo‘s Karen Tumulty.

“I think what most makes Weiner a dirtbag is blaming the sexting/cheating on “problems” in his marriage. No responsibility.” — TWT Senior Op-ed writer Emily Miller.

Journo blames Starbucks for future fatness

“When I weigh 600 lbs, the Starbucks treat receipt is going to come in for some large portion of the blame.” — WaPo‘s Chris Cillizza.

Baby Love: “@PeterAlexander: Absolutely overjoyed to announce the arrival of Ava Starling Alexander!!” — NBC’s Peter Alexander, husband to Allison Starling.
