MAGAZINES

With hope to make some money, Newsweek is changing its subscription policy.

NEWS NOTES

WaPo‘s Howard Kurtz and Paul Duggan‘s take on the CNN coast guard debacle on Friday. “The “news,” such as it was, quickly hit the media echo chamber.”

And Dana Milbank‘s take.

Related? AP: Nearly two-thirds of Americans think the news stories they read, hear and watch are frequently inaccurate, according to a poll released Sunday by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press. That marks the highest level of skepticism recorded since 1985, when this study of public perceptions of the media was first done.

Tom Ricks and the military’s new philosophical embeds in CJR: The doctrine of counterinsurgency has received almost uniformly positive press coverage, at times making it appear to be the only possible avenue for the U.S. military, and in the process that coverage has cast it in the most positive light.

And Newsweek‘s Jon Meacham in NYT: Our Reporter, Ahmadinejad’s Prisoner.

WEST WING REPORTAGE

“I spent all day… working the phones, pestering, cajoling, asking as many questions as possible and they really did not have much detail.” -WaPo‘s Ceci Connolly on difficulties in dealing with administration officials on the health care plan on Sunday’s “Reliable Sources” on CNN. Connolly made the Sunday show rounds- she also appeared on the “Chris Matthews Show.”

Taking Out The Trash

What we almost missed today…

• In light of CNN’s Sasha Johnson‘s move to the Department of Transportation, WaPo’s Ed O’Keefe takes a look at those journos who have gone before her, including Jay Carney, Linda Douglass and Peter Gosselin.

• Talk show host Maury Povich was in DC today for an event on teenage pregnancy at the National Press Club. It was there Povich told Politico’s Patrick Gavin that he’d invite John Edwards and onetime mistress Rielle Hunter on his show for a paternity test. “We’d even do the testing for free,” said Povich.

Davis, Travers, O’Keefe Step It Up At ABC News

From the release:

    ABC News today announced two Deputy Political Directors and an ABCNEWS.com Senior Political Editor. Teddy Davis and Karen Travers will both serve as Deputy Political Directors and report to David Chalian who was promoted to ABC News Political Director in March 2007. Ed O’Keefe will serve as the Senior Political Editor of ABCNEWS.com.

    Teddy Davis is covering his third election cycle for ABC News. Before being promoted to Deputy Political Director, he covered the 2006 Democratic takeover of Congress and the 2004 re-election of President Bush. Throughout his time at the network, Mr. Davis has provided guidance on political coverage to ABC News’ broadcasts, on-camera political analysis to ABC News’ webcasts, and political writing to ABCNews.com. He also has been a regular contributor to The Note. A graduate of Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service, he earned his law degree from The Catholic University of America’s Columbus School of Law.

    Karen Travers joined ABC News in 2000. Before being promoted to Deputy Political Director, she was a White House producer since December 2004. Prior to the White House, she covered the Bush-Cheney 2004 campaign and was a researcher for Ted Koppel at Nightline. Ms. Travers graduated in 2000 from Georgetown University with a degree in American Government. She served as editor-in-chief of The Hoya. Ms. Travers earned a Masters’ degree in Liberal Studies from Georgetown in 2003.

    As Deputy Political Directors, Travers and Davis will provide editorial guidance and work with all ABC News platforms and correspondents on story development and reporting, as well as filing political content for ABC News Digital Media. Mr. Davis and Ms. Travers will also play a key role in planning for Vote 2008 coverage across the news division for the Iowa caucuses, New Hampshire primary, Super Tuesday, conventions, debates, and election night.

    Ed O’Keefe joined ABC News in 2000. Prior to serving as ABCNEWS.com’s Senior Political Editor, he was a producer at “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” and “World News with Charles Gibson”. He traveled as a reporter covering John Kerry’s presidential campaign in 2003-2004 and, prior to that time, worked as a field producer on Capitol Hill.

    As Senior Political Editor of ABCNEWS.com Mr. O’Keefe will oversee all political content for ABCNEWS.com and he will play a key role in planning for Vote 2008 coverage across the digital spectrum for the news division.

Fun fact: Davis, O’Keefe and Travers were all in the same class in college (Georgetown, 2000). The Hoyas are slowly taking over…
