FBDC Tweeterboard: Washington Anchors

Yesterday we took a look at the social standing of the DC publications, now it’s time to turn our attention to those network anchors who call our fair city home. FishbowlDC took a look at the Twitter followers of some of DC’s biggest television personalities, and here’s what we found:

The takeaways: 1) Rankings are unchanged from last month -with the average rate of growth hovering around 2%. 2) The biggest under performer though, was Howard Kurtz, who added only 204 new followers over the course of January. 3) Top performers were Greta VanSusteren with 13,301 new followers, Bret Baier with 10,947, George Stephanopoulos with 9,634, and Chris Matthews with 8,814.

FBDC FaceRace: Washington Anchors

facebook_logo-300x300Yesterday we took a look at the social standing of the DC publications, now it’s time to turn our attention to those network anchors who call our fair city home. FishbowlDC analyzed the Facebook pages of some of DC’s biggest television personalities and the results are revealing. First off, the numbers here are a bit more complicated than with Twitter, since some anchors have well-developed personal pages, while others have clearly spent their time developing their shows’ pages. Our analysts decided the fairest way to provide objective rankings was to combine the followers/likes of anchors’ personal fan pages with those of the shows they host. Below are the rankings of Washington-based anchors based on this combined number.

The takeaway: Chris Matthews is the big winner here. George Stephanopoulos technically bests him, but bear in mind that Stephanopoulos is on network TV nearly every day -a fact which no doubt boosts his personal brand. If you compare their DC-based shows side by side, Matthews is way ahead. Moreover, Stephanopoulos is not actually a full-time DC anchor. He spends most of his time in NYC. 

1.) George Stephanopoulos** – 271,633 (Personal – 229,775 followers; “This Week” – 41,858 likes*)
2.) Chris Matthews - 228,810 (Personal – 22,266 likes*; “Hardball” – 206, 544 likes)
3.) Greta VanSusteren - 208,596 (Personal – 198,662 likes; “On the Record” – 9,934 likes*)
4.) Bret Baier 201,125 (Personal – 196,594 likes; “Special Report” – 4,531 likes*)
5.) David Gregory - 168,495 (Personal – 20,288 likes; Meet The Press – 148,207 likes)
6.) Gwen Ifill - 161,851 (Personal – 4,822 likes*; “News Hour” – 157,029 likes)
7.) Howard Kurtz - 128,427 (Personal – 127,000 followers; “Media Buzz” – 1,427 likes)
8.) Jake Tapper - 95,760 (Personal – 92,310 followers; “The Lead” – 3,450 likes)
9.) Wolf Blitzer - 86,866 (Personal – 9,850 likes*; “Situation Room” – 77,016 likes)
10.) Chris Wallace - 68,871 (Personal – none available; “Fox News Sunday” – 68,871 likes)
11.) Candy Crowley - 54,701 (Personal – 9,637 likes*; “State of the Union” – 45,064 likes)
12.) Andrea Mitchell - 53,828 (Personal – none available; “Andrea Mitchell Reports” – 53,828 likes*)
13.) Chuck Todd - 40,013 (Personal – 654 likes*; “Daily Rundown” – 39,368 likes*)
14.) Bob Schieffer - 36,877 (Personal – 10,669 likes*; “Face the Nation” – 26,208 likes*)
15.) Brian Stelter** – 8,036 (Personal – none available; “Reliable Sources” -8,036 likes)

Rand Paul speeches to use Chicago Style citations?: According to a UPI post on Breitbart, Rand Paul has become so aggravated with the accusations of plagiarism in his speeches, an opinion article, and book that he will start footnoting his writings. This decision was made in the aftermath of Rachel Maddow calling Paul out on his prolific use of the “Gattaca” Wikipedia page in one of his recent speeches. This controversy has led to TWT cancelling his weekly column.

Why you should read it: To remember to attribute information where it’s due, and to justify all of those hours spent scanning Wikipedia in the middle of the night for no reason. Read more here.

Epic burn on CNN: Late last night, Mediaite’s Josh Feldman posted about Rachel Maddow and Chuck Todd‘s burn on CNN. As the Terry McAuliffe HQ watched the election results on that network last night, they missed out on the news that McAuliffe actually won the election. Todd and Maddow goofed on their competitor, and Maddow even suggested that Todd change the channel. He said ““If they choose to get slower news, what are we supposed to do? I think word will trickle in that maybe they ought to change the channel if they want to know who won the Virginia governor’s race.”

Why you should read it: The phrase “If you’re not first, you’re last,” was made popular by the Will Ferrell movie “Talladega Nights,” and outside of stock car racing and reporting, that phrase means nothing. Inside, it’s everything. Read more here.

The Simpsons takes digs at the Media: According to Jack Mirkinson from HuffPost, last night, as ”The Simpsons” rounds the bases on its 24th season, it also took several jabs at all the big media outlets. CNN, MSNBC, and the New York Times were all subject to lampooning, the bulk of which was reserved for Fox News. Rachel Maddow was also given an extended guest spot on the show.

Why you should read it: See how in “The Simpsons” universe, they use technology to deal with bipartisanship. Read more here.

Media misreports LAX shooting, still a win: Erik Wemple posted his appearance on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” with David Folkenflik on his WaPo blog. In that appearance, Wemple called the reporting of the LAX shooter a “win” for the media and a huge improvement from the breaking news reporting of Navy Yard and Newtown. Given, the media still misreports breaking news whenever it can. Now it’s just slightly better misreporting going on.

Why you should read it: See what NBC News still misreported, and see what hoax the Toronto Globe and Mail fell for and reported as actual news. Read more here.

Media Critic’s Cancer is in Remission

images-1Journalists in Washington and elsewhere may want media critic Richard Grenell to go away — in the polite sense — just get the hell out of their faces sort of thing.

But he’s not going anywhere. In fact, Grenell’s cancer is in remission.

He told FishbowlDC… Read more

Morning Chatter

THIS IS CNN: “Wolf! #NavyYardShooting” — HuffPost‘s Jennifer Bendery.

Spotted on the Acela…

“Morning shows apparently repositioning for Tuesday. CNNs Cuomo and CBSs Rose boarding Southbound Acela just now.” — TIME Washington Bureau Chief Michael Scherer.

NBC’s Chuck Todd: the messenger

“I know folks are relishing an opportunity to get out their hatred for media; I’m just trying to provide context for what we got wrong.” — NBC Political Director Chuck Todd.

Trying to piece together facts

“In the last 15 seconds on one radio i heard 9 dead…8 dead and 6 dead — are they not listening to each other?” — FNC’s Greta Van Susteren.

Words of media wisdom…

“It’s pretty clear at this point that nothing is ever learned from one royal breaking news f’ up to the next.” — Politico‘s Ben White.

“Know what? If you or I RT something, we endorse it. (Maybe not views themselves, but as accurate news.) Any disclaimer otherwise: bullshit.” — National Journal “The Hotline’s” Scott Bland.

“If the wrong person was named in today’s shooting, I hope he sues the news orgs and wins, a la Richard Jewell. Pathetic. #journalism.” — Brad Phillips, who writes the Mr. Media Training blog.

“Two things that never work out. Ever. 1.) Saying ‘Don’t you know who I am?’
2.) Rushing to be 1st with unverified facts. First is not best.” — Pittsburgh Tribune-Review‘s Salena Zito.

“It’s always conflicting law enforcement sources…” — BuzzFeed Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith.

“So basically every piece of information that’s come out about the shooting so far today has been wrong.” — WCP‘s Aaron Weiner.

“Did we learn nothing from Sandy Hook and the Boston bombing? Stop reporting wild rumors like it’s fact.” — Washington Examiner‘s Steve Contorno.

“Here’s an idea. Rather than tweet out competing reports, perhaps we could wait a little bit and report out confirmed reports.” — Mo Elleithee, DNC Communications Director.

“Okay, turning off Twitter for now because developing news and social media don’t mix.” — J.P. Freire at 11:37 a.m. Monday.
