Diane Rehm: Beloved DC Media Maven/Spiritual Leader of Michigan Hardcore

We’ve been really into this Michigan hardcore band recently…

And by that we mean we just discovered them while googling images of Diane Rehm (don’t ask!). A quick perusal of their lyrics doesn’t suggest an immediate connection to Ms. Rehm:

maybe I shoulda gone to class more/
but my education two pints deep in the gutter at 2:00 pm taught me/
i could never f**king work for them.

But they’ve got spunk… and an unusual vocal presentation, so we guess it makes sense…

Go here to check out their music. Warning: NSWF!!!

NYT’s Helene Cooper Wins Urbino Press Award

Italian Ambassador Giulio Terzi announced Wednesday night that the recipient of the 2011 Urbino Press Award is Helene Cooper, White House Correspondent for NYT. The award is given each year to an American journalist “for distinguished reporting on the ever-changing world.”  Cooper, born in Monrovia, Liberia, had to flee the country after the 1980 coup. She wrote about her experiences in the war-torn African country in her memoir, The House at Sugar Beach.

Previous winners include: ABC’s Martha Raddatz, NYT Columnist Thomas Friedman, WaPo’s David Ignatius and NPR’s Diane Rehm.

Cooper’s remarks: “I’m incredibly honored to receive this year’s Urbino Press Award, for both professional and personal reasons. Professionally, I’m thrilled and humbled to share a stage with David Ignatius, Tom Friedman and Martha Raddatz—they are all first-rate chroniclers of the world around us. And personally for me,  there is no higher honor than being recognized by the cultural heirs of Baldassare Castiglione, Elisabetta Gonzaga and Federico da Montefeltro—a trio who epitomized Renaissance cool as far as I’m concerned. Grazie mille, Urbino.”

Cooper is scheduled to receive her prize in a ceremony in Urbino on June 3.

Slate Writer Gets a Taste of Her Own Medicine

A couple of weeks ago, Slate’s D.C.-based Emily Yoffe posted a slideshow of people she thought should throw in the towel. Among them: Sumner Redstone, majority owner of CBS and Paramount Pictures, 60 MinutesAndy Rooney, NPR host Diane Rehm, and even such teen idols as Justin Bieber and Dick Clark (not a teen idol).

She asked for feedback. And boy, did she get it. Who knew Slate readers were such staunch Bieber defenders?

On Friday, she announced what readers had to say: “The results are in, and your No. 1 pick is … me! Many were moved to name me because they found my piece to be ‘mean-spirited,’ ‘outrageous and delusional,’ ‘useless drivel,’ ‘unfair,’ ‘hateful,’ ‘rude,’ and ‘ageist.’ One reader wanted to know, ‘Why don’t you just line these old folks up and shoot them?’”

Though Yoffe admits her column was “cheeky,” she didn’t back down. She also published other readers’ picks (ones that weren’t her). They include Pat Buchanan for his apparent anti-Semitism, John McCain, and “the Comics page,” because so many of its comics are written by ancient people and, in the case of Charles Schulz’s Peanuts, a dead person.

NPR.org, Nelson and Rehm Snag Peabody Awards

Congrats to all!
