CNN SVP and Washington Bureau Chief David Bohrman joins the Morning Media Menu today. He’s responsible for bringing the “Magic Wall” and other pieces of technology to the CNN audience.

It was back-to-back national security speeches yesterday by President Obama and former Vice President Dick Cheney. But where did Cheney’s audience at AEI watch the President’s speech prior to his? Not on TV, rather on CNN.com.

WebNewser reports BBC has launched a YouTube channel.

WEST WING REPORTAGE

ABC’S White House correspondent Jake Tapper points out a new media operation by the Obama administration. “Obama White House officials decided to do their own media report on the visit, complete with cuts, interviews, and chyrons identifying who’s speaking,” writes Tapper, while the pool report from the day said: “Your Pool was not allowed to go over and shoot POTUS with the team shooting hoops. We protested loudly.”

AWARDS

Congrats to Rachel Sklar! Poynter reports Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications announced the People’s Choice winners in the third annual Mirror Awards competition honoring excellence in media industry reporting. And the former FishbowlNY editor picked up two.

REVOLVING DOOR

University of Chicago economist John Cochrane joins Cato. From the release: Earlier this year the Cato Institute published Cochrane’s authoritative study “Health-Status Insurance: How Markets Can Provide Health Security,” which explains how markets can make medicine better and health insurance more secure for patients with high-cost illnesses. “John Cochrane’s work on health-status insurance could hold the secret to fighting off the latest nationalized health care scheme,” said Cato founder and president Ed Crane.

NEWSPAPERS

FT: Google has considered buying a newspaper or using its charitable arm to support news businesses seeking non-profit status, but is now unlikely to pursue either option, Eric Schmidt, chairman and chief executive, said.

WSJ: Debt-laden newspaper publisher McClatchy Co. announced plans to exchange $1.15 billion in notes at a significant discount. A crushing advertising environment has been especially hurtful to McClatchy, which went on a debt-fueled growth spurt just before ad revenue turned south.

Check out yesterday’s Ask the Post. Apparently WaPo will not be expanding in Baltimore, despite the state of the Sun there.

TV

So, Rush Limbaugh did not get his wish. TVNewser notes MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann mentioned his name over and over again on last night’s “Countdown,” concluding with his own promise: “I will go 30 days on this program without referencing what has been done, or said, or boasted about, by Rush Limbaugh. Provided you go 30 days on your program without mentioning what has been done, or said, or boasted about by… Rush Limbaugh. Hannity would last longer on the waterboard.”

NEWS NOTES

Why did Katie Couric anchor from DC last night? She was in town for the American News Women’s Club 15th gala and Helen Thomas Award Dinner. She received the award and was roasted by colleagues and friends at the Fairmont. We’ll have the dets posted later today.

REVOLVING DOOR

As noted first on Playbook this morning- Tucker Bounds (“who has America’s best name short of Tiger Woods”) of Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign, will now be communications director for Meg Whitman, the former eBay CEO, who is running for the Republican nomination for Governor in California.

Author and Soviet-era political dissident Valdimir Bukovsky joins the Cato Institute as a senior fellow. From the release: “Vladmir personifies the struggle for freedom that animates the Cato Institute’s mission,” said Cato founder and president Ed Crane.
