NBC reporter charges media bias: While being interviewed for The Brody File on the Christian Broadcast Network by David Brody, NBC’s Luke Russert said he has noticed a media bias and overall “snark” that tends to put down people of faith. Russert said, “You’re sort of tagged with this label of being puritanical and not understanding of others and different viewpoints and I think that’s kind of lazy number one and I think it’s just something that just feeds the snickering masses in that regard.”

Why you should read it:  Either he feels like he’s telling the truth, or he’s a big religious loony. Decide for yourself. Read more here.

Fox News reporter storms out of White House presser: TheRawStory’s George Chidi reported recently that press secretary Jay Carney would not answer Fox News correspondent Ed Henry‘s questions during a press conference last week. Henry got so fed up with being ignored that he stormed out of the press conference before it ended.

Why you should read it: If you ever have to work at the White House and you get snubbed by the press secretary, you should see how people have handled that same situation in the past. Read more here.

Shoshannah Nuñez Comes to ‘The Brody File’

Shoshannah Nuñez was recently hired as the new producer for “The Brody File,” a weekly political talk show on CBN (Christian Broadcast Network).

Nuñez was previously at CBN’s Virginia Beach headquarters, where she produced “Newswatch,” the network’s nightly newscast. She began her career at NBC affiliate WWBT-TV in Richmond, Virginia.

The show is hosted by David Brody, chief political correspondent for the network and contributor to Fox News, CNN, MSNBC and NBC’s “Meet The Press.” The half-hour show explores “key issues relating to faith and politics,” according to the network’s website.

Nuñez’s first day at “The Brody File”  was July 1. She found the transition easy because she had already been at CBN. She describes the show as a refreshing break from a standard nightly newscast.

“While we report the news, The Brody File isn’t your typical newscast,” Nuñez wrote in an email to FBDC. “We get the chance to be different and creative in the way we tell stories.”

She also says that she’s looking forward new opportunities as a producer of the show, which she called “funny and smart.”

“I’m really looking forward to what’s ahead,” the email continued. “I’m excited to go on the road with The Brody File team, do some great interviews, meet some interesting people and produce an awesome show.”

Tavis Swims in the Fishbowl Daily (So he Says…)

LA-based talk show host Tavis Smiley comes to D.C. next week to moderate a “multicultural, multi-ethnic, multi-ideological” panel next Thursday at GW’s Lisner Auditorium. The panel is set to include opinion-makers such as Cornel West, Arianna Huffington, Maria Bartiromo, David Frum, Dana Milbank, David Brody, and Maria Teresa Kumar.

“We’re going to talk about how this country can get back on the right track, if that’s possible,” Smiley told FishbowlDC in a phone interview on Thursday morning. (Horribly, I completely spaced our Wednesday interview and he agreed to chat with me Thursday. When I answered the phone and apologized profusely, he said, “I’m just happy when you answer the phone. Turns me on.” Laughter ensued. A well-deserved crack for standing him up.)

Anyway, back to the interview and getting the country back on track. “There is so much happening in Washington in our body politic,” he’s saying. Asked if he thinks our country can get on a better path, he said, “I think America’s a great country, but I think we have to be on the right track on this divided government that we have to endure. I think the president squandered some time. He could have been more aggressive in the past two years.”

Smiley’s media diet in Washington includes a brief buttering up of our sister site, FishbowlLA, and FishbowlDC: “Oh man, I read most everything online. I live in LA. I’m swimming in the Fishbowl every day, every other day.” When in Washington, Smiley prefers boutique hotels like the Hotel George. But this time he’s staying at the host hotel, the Madison Loews. As for eating, he says he always ends up at Georgia Browns and Ben’s Chili Bowl.

What else can we expect to hear from Smiley next week and what are his thoughts on the media? As he put it…

CBN’s Brody Leaves W.H.

CBN White House reporter David Brody has been named Chief Political Correspondent for the network.  Jennifer Wishon will take his spot at the White House.  In an email announcing his new position, Brody said “becoming Chief Political Correspondent will allow me to provide in-depth coverage of the 2012 presidential race. Expect to see big newsmaker interviews and fresh, original reporting from the field.”

Hume Fallout Hopefully Coming to Standstill

brit-hume-picture_279x309.jpg Please God, unless Fox News’s Brit Hume apologizes, meets with His Holiness the Dalai Lama or takes up Buddhism, let this story die already.

Although discussion seems to be down to a trickle, over the weekend we were subjected to more doses of the Hume religion saga. WaPo’s Howard Kurtz, host of CNN’s “Reliable Sources”, discussed Hume’s unsolicited advice for Tiger Woods and Politics Daily’s Carl Cannon wrote a piece on it.

Kurtz’s interviews included new faces to opine on Hume’s unsolicited advice, such as David Brody, White House correspondent for the Christian Broadcasting Network. Cannon’s piece was, like Kurtz’s segment, more of the same until you get to his personal observations of Hume, which are well worth reading and include more details around Hume’s interactions with former President Clinton in the Rose Garden and Hume’s religious transformation after his son, Sandy, committed suicide in 1998.

Here’s a sample:

Once, because the men’s rooms in the White House briefing room were occupied and Brit was preparing for a broadcast, I saw him putting on makeup by using the glass reflection on a vending machine. He looked back at me and shrugged, and said with a grin, “Helluva way for a grown man to make a living, isn’t it?”

Read Cannon’s story.

Watch Kurtz’s report.

    Brody Off To The White House

    From Christian Broadcasting Network David Brody‘s blog:

      Don’t worry. I’m not really moving. The Brody file continues. It’s just that I’ll be spending more time at The White House.

      Starting with the Obama administration, I will be the new White House Correspondent for CBN News. I’ll still be a CNN Contributor.

      Please remember that the Brody File is alive and well from The White House. I’ll still be bringing you newsmakers through my blog. Not only will we have the movers and shakers from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue coming your way but look for interviews with top newsmakers from Capitol Hill, the faith community, the power brokers of Washington DC and yes, the potential 2012 Republican candidates for President! Basically, if you’re looking for exclusive political news, The Brody File is it.
