    How Much Do Posties Make?

    The Washington City Paper pulls a Fuego (as compared to, say, a Frio…) with this .pdf of Post salaries (no names, sorry…). And then, Erik “I Would Only Bounce At, Say, The Black Cat” Wemple wonders whether Michael Wilbon and Tony Kornheiser are pulling in $230,000 at the paper.

    >UPDATE: The Washington – Baltimore Newspaper Guild already had the .pdf up (so frio…)

    >UPDATE: Could David Broder be one of those $230,000+ reporters?

    More WPCF Notes…

    Additional coverage from WaPo, Washington Examiner, Washingtonian, Wonkette and Politico.com (come on, Mason: Stop being such a slacker and post already!)

    Also, some of the details:

    Dinner menu:

      A salad of micro greens and field greens. Caesar Parmesan Crisp. Shaved beets. Grana Parmesan Emulsion. A seasonal bisque shot (or as one not so bright lobbyist said: “I thought that was the dressing!”).

      Assorted rolls with sweet creamery butter

      Vidalia onion-crusted filet mignon. Forest mushroom risotto cake. Asparagus ragout. Roasted tomato provencal. Pinot Noir Jus.

      Artisan cheeses. Dried fruits, figs and nuts. Fresh raspberries.

    The program:

      Introduction: Jesse Holland, WPCF president

      Winner of 2007 David Lynch Regional Reporting Award For Excellent in Congressional Reporting: Lisa Mascaro, Las Vegas Sun.

      Winner of 2007 Washington Press Club Foundation Lifetime Achievement Award: Tad Bartimus (who fondly recalled the days when Helen Thomas put doggie bags in her purse to help Bartimus survive on $70/day).

    New scholarships: One in honor of Fran Lewine and another in honor of Mary Lou Bailey.

    Quotables:

      “The older I get, the smarter David Broder sounds.” -Chris Matthews.

      “At some point, everyone in this room will become a bureau chief.” CNN DC Bureau Chief David Bohrman.

      And, of course: “If you want to talk, go outside and smoke a cigar. If you want to stay in here, then be respectful.” Then later: “Please, please, please!” – Chris Matthews

  • Howard Kurtz writes, “O.J. was back. O.J. was proclaiming his innocence. O.J. was doing the perp walk.
