Taking Out the Trash

What we almost missed today…

So why did CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta turn down the Surgeon General job? Howard Kurtz and Michael Shear have a diagnosis. “One source close to him said Gupta was very disheartened by [Tom] Daschle’s fate and fearful he was not going to get a prominent role in the health-care reform process… Gupta has built a lucrative media empire that includes appearances on CBS as well as CNN and book deals. Soon after his interest in the job became public, he had expressed concern to friends about the financial impact on his wife and children.”

Today was Andy Merten‘s last day at msnbc.com in the Wash bureau. Good luck at law school, Andy!

The Doctor Is Not In

CNN U.S. President Jon Klein confirms tonight that Dr. Sanjay Gupta, the cable network’s chief medical correspondent, has
withdrawn his name from President Obama’s consideration for next surgeon general.

Klein says the decision was made “in order to continue devoting time to his medical career and of course his work at CNN.”

TVNewser was on this story earlier today.

Zuckman to Obama Administration

Chicago Tribune’s Jill Zuckman joins President Obama’s administration as the Department of Transportation’s director of public affairs and assistant to Secretary Ray LaHood.

Zuckman was a Washington-based correspondent at the Tribune and also made frequent appearances on MSNBC and Fox News.

She is the second Tribune reporter to take a job in the administration. Peter Gosselin is now the chief speech writer for Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner. This move is somewhat of a trend- Jay Carney, formerly of Time Magazine, is now Vice President Biden’s communications director and CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta is supposedly among the top picks to become the next surgeon general.
