And the Envelope Please…Finalists for Michael Kelly Award

100_3756-250x250.jpg

Atlantic Media has announced four finalists for the 2010 Michael Kelly Award.

The $25,000 award will be given at a ceremony at the company’s Washington, D.C. headquarters on April 18. The award was created in honor of Michael Kelly, who was editor of two Atlantic Media publications, The Atlantic and NJ and was killed while covering the war in Iraq in 2003.

Chosen from a field of 50 entries, finalists are:

1. Ken Bensinger and Ralph Vartabedian, LAT
Based on five months of tenacious reporting, Bensinger and Vartabedian chronicled the problem of unintended acceleration in Toyotas. As LAT Editor Russell Stanton wrote in his nomination letter, Bensinger and Vartabedian “challenged assumptions, developed their own evidence and built a compelling case of corporate malfeasance and regulatory indulgence.”

2. Sheri Fink, ProPublica
Who should be saved first when disaster strikes? That’s the question that doctors and nurses at Memorial Medical Center in New Orleans faced in the harrowing days after Hurricane Katrina when scores of patients were trapped in a building without electricity or running water. In “The Deadly Choices at Memorial,” ProPublica writer and medical doctor Sheri Fink reconstructed the decisions that resulted in some patients being injected with lethal doses of morphine as others were boarded onto rescue helicopters.

3. Jeffrey Gettleman, NYT
As the East Africa correspondent for NYT, Gettleman has tracked the spread of Islamic radicalism, interviewed pirate bosses in Somalia (one of whom laughed that their lunch together was like “the cat eating with the mice”) and described how mass rape of women and men has become a weapon of war in eastern Congo. He’s been shot at by insurgents and dealt with the constant risk that his reporting will put him in harm’s way.

4. David Rohde, NYT
Rohde described how he and two Afghan colleagues were kidnapped by the Taliban outside Kabul and held for seven months before he and one of his colleagues escaped on foot to a Pakistani military base. Rohde was initially reluctant to write about his experience, telling his editors, “I donÂ’t want to make myself look like a hero. I am not a hero.”

Five judges comprised the selection panel:

Ken Armstrong, The Seattle Times

Siobhan Gorman, WSJ

Charlie Green, NJ

Kathy Kiely, USA Today

Cullen Murphy, VF

NEWSPAPERS

NYT‘s David Rohde is penning a five-part series on his captivity in Afghanistan and Pakistan and escape from Taliban kidnappers. Part one debuted in yesterday’s paper.

TV

ABC’s Kate Snow meets KISS.

Fox News has apparently fired liberal pundit Marc Lamont Hill.

And TLC is suing Jon Gosselin.

RADIO

In a radio interview with CBS News, President George H.W. Bush said the tone of the national discourse lacks civility. “I don’t like it… The cables (TV) have a lot to do with it.” The former President also called MSNBC hosts Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann “sick puppies.” (h/t HuffPost)

ONLINE

Playbook: CNNImageSource.com, the network’s news on-demand source for video licensing, lists “Barack Obama Eating” at the top of its list of “Popular Searches.” Yields 108 results, from “OBAMA EATS WAFFLE” to “OBAMA HOT DOG STOP” to “OBAMA EATS MOUSE” (means “mousse”).

Sarah Palin has joined LinkedIn.

NEWS NOTES

Motion Picture Association of America Chairman and CEO Dan Glickman has said he’ll step down when his contract ends in September 2010. Politico reports Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, former Rep. Harold Ford Jr., Universal Music lobbyist Matt Gerson, Rep. Howard Berman (D-Calif.), a longtime friend of Glickman’s, and internal candidates Richard Bates of Disney, MPAA COO Bob Pisano and federal affairs chief Michael O’Leary are among the names of possible replacements.

NYT: With the war in Afghanistan heating up, the coverage grows. “It’s like the Baghdad class of 2003 is now the Kabul class of 2009,” Richard Engel of NBC said.

AP: Military leaders in Afghanistan have backed off an attempt to ban news organizations embedded with the Army from photographing or videotaping images of U.S. personnel killed in the war.

Iran has released a foreign Newsweek reporter on bail this weekend after four months.

NEWSPAPERS

NYT ombudsman addressed David Rohde‘s kidnapping in Saturday’s paper. Clark Hoyt: Had I been in [executive editor Bill] Keller’s shoes, I would have done what he did for [David] Rohde and his companions, even though Keller acknowledged, “I’ll never know for sure whether our silence had any impact whatsoever on David’s fate.”

TV

How Sarah Palin’s news broke on TV this holiday weekend, from TVNewser.

Sunday show ratings: “Meet the Press with David Gregory was #1 again last week and for the second quarter of 2009, but the gap continues to narrow. “Face the Nation with Bob Schieffer” was second in Total Viewers last week while “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” was second in younger viewers.

From TVNewser: Schieffer’s show is up 13% in both Total Viewers and A25-54 viewers compared to last year. “This Week” is up 15% in Total Viewers and up 7% in the demo versus last year. This was the smallest Q2 gap between “This Week and “Meet” since 1998.

Even Admiral Michael Mullen can’t resist the CNN magic wall. On Sunday’s “State of the Union” with John King, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff used the magic wall to describe situations for US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

ONLINE

Dan Abrams‘ “Huffington Post meets Gawker” website Mediaite launched early this morning. Editor-at-large Rachel Sklar did an email interview with Gawker and WaPo‘s Howard Kurtz caught up with Abrams and others involved in today’s Media Notes.

Salon: How blogs changed everything.

BOOKS

Gov. Mark Sanford‘s book on ‘policy beliefs’ has been shelved. From his publisher: “Sentinel has agreed to release Governor Mark Sanford of South Carolina from his contract to write a book about fiscal conservatism, which was to be called WITHIN OUR MEANS and was scheduled for publication in March 2010. This is a mutual decision. We wish Governor Sanford the best.” (h/t HuffPost)

You heard Sarah Palin‘s news this weekend. Now Politico reports her attorney threated Saturday to sue mainstream news organizations if they publish “defamatory” stories on whether or not Palin is under federal investigation. Newly launched Mediaite weighs in: “Palin blames the media (again), and everyone comes out a winner.”
