“Hardball” Documentary “The Kennedy Brothers” On Next Week

Chris Matthews will anchor a “Hardball” documentary “The Kennedy Brothers” next Thursday at 7pm on MSNBC.

The special “deconstructs the myth and legend surrounding this quintessential American family,” according to Hardblogger. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, Frank Mankiewicz, biographer Peter Canellos, and presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin are interviewed.

Matthews is also the author of “Kennedy & Nixon: The Rivalry that Shaped Postwar America.”

He talked about the special on “The Colbert Report,” which you can watch in today’s Morning Reading List. Check out a preview of the documentary after the jump…

Brokaw Appointed to Commission on WH Fellowships

Yesterday, the White House released a list of 28 people that President Obama has appointed to the Commission on White House Fellowships. Among the group selected by the President is NBC’s Tom Brokaw.

From the release:

The White House Fellowship is America’s most prestigious program for leadership and public service, providing young individuals with experience working at the highest levels of the federal government. Fellows also participate in an education program consisting of roundtable discussions with renowned leaders from the private and public sectors and complete service activities throughout the year. Alumni of this non-partisan program include former Secretary of State General Colin Powell, retired U.S. Army General Wesley Clark, and author Doris Kearns Goodwin.

I’ve always considered it strange for active journalists to be appointed to positions that align them with government agencies, political parties or politicians. This may be an exception to the case but does anyone else find it “too close for comfort?” Weigh in.

The full WH release after the jump.

    REVOLVING DOOR

  • A tipster tells us that The Washington Times’ Greg Lopes has joined PhRMA’s press shop.

  • Ed Morrissey writes on Captain’s Quarters, “Today brings exciting news and an end to a time in my life that has proven far more successful than I ever dreamed. Beginning on March 1, I will begin working for Michelle Malkin, a friend, mentor, and writer I have long admired. She has offered me a position as writer at Hot Air, and my blogging will appear exclusively there.”

    NEWSPAPERS

  • Rachel Sklar looks into the media’s “Drumbeat For A Hillary Exit” (and fact checks Richard Cohen while she’s at it).

  • TheStreet.com reports, “The Ochs-Sulzberger family managed to cling to their control over the New York Times last year, but they may not be able to keep dissidents off the publisher’s board of directors this time around. Scott Galloway of investment firm Firebrand Partners, with financial backing from activist hedge fund Harbinger Capital Partners, has hired D.F. King, a proxy solicitation firm, to press its case with New York Times shareholders in the lead-up to the company’s annual meeting on April 22, according to a source familiar with the matter.”

  • E&P reports, “As Pulitzer Prize jurors prepare to gather next week in New York to sift through hundreds of submissions and find three finalists in each of the 14 journalism categories to nominate for the full board to consider in a month, speculation is mounting over which entries have the best chance. … Some news events, such as the Virginia Tech massacre and the Minnesota bridge collapse, give a clear breaking news advantage to papers near those stories. A handful of investigative and in-depth projects, including several China-related probes, are also top contenders, based on interviews with a few jurors and a look at the other major awards already announced.”

  • The Horses Mouth reports, John Solomon’s Washington Times Presents The Next Obama Smear: Military ‘Fears’ Him”

  • Slate’s Michael Kinsley writes about his “apparent concern about the appearance of the possibility of the appearance of a possible affair.”

  • Cox’s Ken Herman reports, “Today’s installment in one of Washington’s best long-running shows: Hearst Newspapers’ Helen Thomas vs. whoever happens to be in the White House. The topic was President Bush’s insistence on lawsuit immunity for telecommunications companies that cooperated in the federal government’s program to eavesdrop on suspected terrorists. Ms. Thomas, as she has for several weeks, wanted White House Press Secretary Dana Perino to explain why immunity is needed. If the companies did nothing wrong, Ms. Thomas argued, they have nothing to fear in a court of law.”

  • The Nation reports, “Evidently the editors of the New York Times have taken leave of their senses. There can be no other explanation for putting a story on the front page of their newspaper speculating about Barack Obama’s being assassinated. The Times is beginning to make it a practice of running news-free stories on its front page. Most of them are harmless, but this one is sickening.”

  • Huffington Post reports, “Clinton Campaign Response To New York Times Rejected”

  • Washington Post’s Deborah Howell writes, “A Veterans Charity Cries Foul”

  • U.S. News’ Paul Bedard shows us a little local activism goes a long way.

  • Politico reports, “Obama stiffs, stifles national press”

Deval Patrick)? Russert turned first to Doris Kearns Goodwin, the presidential historian and Meet the Press regular. And it should have made for awkward television — asking someone with a plagiarism scandal in her past to weigh in on charges of plagiarism from the campaign trail. I mean, what does that disclosure look like — ‘You’re no stranger to charges of plagiarism, Doris, how does Obama battle this? Does this stick?’”

    morningsun.gifGood morning Washington.

  • Overwhelmingly, you think Dana Perino will be the next White House press secretary.

  • TVNewser reports, “Another Super Tuesday tomorrow on MSNBC. Chris Matthews continues in Iowa moderating the Livestrong Cancer Forum. Back east, Tim Russert, Natlie Morales, Tucker Carlson, Chris Jansing and others will hold down the anchor fort.”

  • The AP reports, “Yahoo Inc. will introduce new features Monday for its popular Web-based e-mail program, including software that allows computer users to type text messages on a keyboard and send them directly to someone’s cell phone.”

  • The Hollywood Reporter’s Gail Schiller reports, “To launch their fall lineups, the major networks are turning to the Web like never before, offering viewers the chance to see premiere episodes for free and producing original content around their new series that doubles as entertainment and advertising.”

  • New York Post reports, “Mel Karmazin taught Farid Suleman well — so well, in fact, that the Citadel Communications CEO’s move to bring Don Imus back to the airwaves is torn straight from the teacher’s manual.”

  • Bloomberg reports, “Hearst Corp., the publisher of the San Francisco Chronicle and almost 200 magazines, plans to offer about $593.1 million for the stock of Hearst-Argyle Television Inc. it doesn’t already own. Hearst-Argyle shares surged.”

  • Media Daily News reports, “Now the world’s biggest researcher is launching ‘Hey! Nielsen,’ a new online social community where people can discuss — and influence — TV, music, movies, Internet sites and celebrities. ‘Part opinion engine, part social network, and part buzz tracker, Hey!

  • Erin Burnett now calls the Chris Matthews moment, “a strange moment.”

  • The Washington Post brings us, “Nightly Crimes Perpetrated by the TV News”

  • The Nation reports, “Along with the (now stalled) rush toward massive conglomeration and the (accelerating) rash of budget-cutting in news-gathering operations, perhaps the two most visible trends across nearly all mainstream US media in recent decades have been an increasing inclination toward tabloid-style coverage coupled with an intense effort to win over conservative critics of alleged liberal media bias.”

  • Boston Globe’s Richard Lipez writes, “It’s still uncertain when or where shock-jock Don Imus will return to the airwaves, now that he has settled his suit with CBS. But a more interesting question is this: When Imus does come back, will distinguished American media personages such as Frank Rich, Doris Kearns Goodwin, and Tom Brokaw continue to show up on his show, lending him respectability and cover for his racist, misogynistic, and gay-baiting rants?”

  • TVNewser reports, “Michael Vick’s first comments since pleading guilty to dogfighting charges could not have come at a worse time for MSNBC. The cable network is covering the two-day Livestrong Presidential Cancer Forum headlined by Lance Armstrong. At 11:34amET Chris Matthews and Armstrong were in the middle of questioning Sen. Hillary Clinton, when Vick appeared.”
