Baltimore’s Joce Sterman Brings Fox 5′s Emily Miller Some Competition

investigative_reporter_600x300Watch out Emily Miller…WJLA has some competition for you!

Just weeks after The Washington Times senior opinion editor announced her move to Fox 5 as its chief investigative reporter, Joce Sterman from Baltimore’s WMAR announced today on Twitter she’s headed to WJLA. Sterman covered consumer and investigative reporting at Baltimore’s ABC affiliate, where she’s been since 2007.

While we’re told investigative reporting won’t be Sterman’s only duties, we expect to see her skills in competition with Miller.

Congrats to Sterman, starting May 12, and again to Miller, who joins Fox 5 next week.

Wash Times Emily Miller to Fox 5 as Chief Investigative Reporter

Emily-MillerVia our sister site TVSpy, Emily Miller has been named chief investigative reporter for Fox 5 to begin April 28.

Miller, who currently serves as the senior editor of The Washington Times’ Opinion Pages, has previously worked in ABC News’ DC bureau as an associate producer for “This Week” and “Good Morning America.” She is the author of Emily Gets Her Gun … But Obama Wants to Take Yours (Regnery 2013) and won the 2012 Clark Mollenhoff Award for Investigative Reporting from The Fund For American Studies’ Institute on Political Journalism.

“FOX 5 is giving me the opportunity to uncover corruption, investigate criminals and challenge the power structure in Washington,” Miller said. “I’m looking forward to working with such a talented team that brings D.C. the facts and insight into the stories that everyone is talking about, or should be talking about.”

Lanny Davis, Christine O’Donnell Star in TWT Idol at CPAC

Sources at The Washington Times tell Fishbowl DC that this week will be a big one for one lucky young journalist at CPAC. If they have the interviewing chops to impress TWT writers and editors, that is.

TWT will be holding an “American Idol” style competition at CPAC on Thursday and Friday that will pit 14 aspiring journalists from universities across the country against one another for a chance at the ultimate prize for any young conservative: a  PAID internship at TWT. 

The 14 young sprites will take turns interviewing four victims guests on stage in front of a panel of Times’ judges, and the best interviewer will ultimately get the internship.

Guests interviewees  include: former Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell, TWT Opinion Editor David Keene, columnist Tammy Bruce, and former Clinton White House adviser Lanny Davis.

The judges will be: TWT Managing Editor Chris Dolan, Law Enforcement Correspondent Kelly Riddell, Senior Political Correspondent Ralph Hallow, Managing Editor Ian Bishop, Columnist Emily Miller, and Columnist Armstrong Williams.

 

Update 4:17: A previous version of this post stated that the internship at TWT won’t be paid. In fact, it will be a paid position.

Them’s Fighting Words! Harvey Weinstein to Take on NRA

nraHollywood heavy weight Harvey Weinstein recently announced to host Howard Stern on his radio show that he has plans to make a film to take down the National Rifle Association.

“I shouldn’t say this, but I’ll tell it to you, Howard,” Weinstein said yesterday on The Howard Stern Show. “I’m going to make a movie with Meryl Streep, and we’re going to take this head-on. And they’re going to wish they weren’t alive after I’m done with them.”

‘I shouldn’t say this?’ Well then why are you on a satellite radio show? Also, that sounds like a threat, and no one likes a bully, especially in 2014.

Of course Washington Times Senior Opinion Editor Emily Miller, author of the widely popular Emily Gets Her Gun” column turned book had an opinion about said interview. Read what she had to say here.

Afternoon Reading List 09.17.13.

MSNBC reporter tries his best, fails: When tragic events occur, like the shootings that transpired yesterday at D.C.’s Naval Yard, reporters are expected to deliver each breaking news story with incredible delicacy, while maintaining the highest level of journalistic professionalism. According to an story posted yesterday by Jeff Poor of The Daily Caller, MSNBC reporter Luke Russert sort of just winged it while reporting live from outside the Washington Hospital Center. Seconds before the feed was lost (due to “technical issues,” or hopefully the result of actions taken by a quick thinking producer), Russert made this awkward statement: “The doctor told us that they had reports of more deceased victims who will not receive care obviously because they were deceased.” There you have it! Russert has finally cleared the air about the medical community’s controversial stance on providing medical care to the deceased (they’re still against it).

Why you should read this article/watch this news clip: It’s pretty hilarious. You can almost hear the guy in the news van shouting obscenities into Russert’s ear piece just moments before he yanks all of the wires out of the satellite feed, killing the transmission.

Media misreports identity of gunman:  The competition within the media to be the first to break a news story is incredible. Yesterday, in a race to identify the gunman terrorizing the Navy Yard, CBS News and NBC News were first to give the world a name behind the madness. But it was the wrong name, and they were forced to retract their previous report. Last night, Rem Rieder of USA Today wrote about their flubs in a story on the media’s track record for misreporting stories. In his post, Rieder details past instances of the media reporting misinformation during high-profile events. It seems to be a recurring trend.

Why you should read this article: If you ever find yourself breaking a story that seems too good to be true, it probably is.

CNN “Crossfire” Party Packs a Punch

“It was terr i fy ying,” said CNN “Crossfire” host Van Jones, careful to enunciate every syllable when asked about his first night on the job.

At least at the Crossfire launch party held last night at the Carnegie Library he could finally let his hair down (so to speak) and enjoy a night with friends, colleagues, booze and a band.

His co-hosts popped in the crowd — Newt Gingrich with his big, shiny helmet of white hair, S.E. Cupp in a purple leather sleeveless dress and Stephanie Cutter in power red.

Meanwhile, others mingled: Newt’s wife, Callista held her own with her perfect, shiny, white-blond bob,  former “Crossfire” host Paul Begala wished the new hosts well, as Rep. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.) and fiancé, Maria Belen Chapur, attracted flashbulbs on the red carpet while a very thin Caroline Kennedy, President Obama’s nominee for Amb. to Japan, drew stares. Others spotted around the room: WJLA’s Rebecca Cooper, conservative radio host Laura Ingraham, The Weekly Standard Editor Bill Kristol (who is far shorter in person than we imagined), FNC’s Greta Van Susteren and husband, John Coale, WaPo‘s Jackie Kucinich, ex-TWT Editor Sam Dealey, TWT‘s senior opinion writer Emily Miller, The Daily Caller‘s Alex Pappas, Politico‘s Dylan Byers, The Hill‘s Emily Goodin, CQ Roll Call‘s Abby Livingston, Slate‘s Dave Weigel, TIME‘s Michael Crowley, MSNBC’s Karen Finney, lefty radio host Bill Press, Speaker John Boehner‘s spokesman Michael Steel and wife, Mary Kathryn Covert, lobbyist Jack Quinn and wife, Susanna, Americans for Tax Reform Prez Grover Norquist, NRSC’s fiery Brad Dayspring, and consultant Brian Walsh.

CNNer’s spotted in the crowd: CNN President Jeff Zucker, Washington Bureau Chief Sam Feist, Jessica Yellin, Dana Bash, Brianna Keilar, Wolf Blitzer, Gloria Borger, Candy Crowley (without a shred of makeup), Wendell Goler, Matt Dornic, and Edie Emery.

Asked about Cupp, his conservative co-host, Jones said, “S.E. is the most likeable person ever born. I think they created her in a lab. She hypnotizes you and then she goes in for the kill.”

Cupp also had a thing or two to say about Jones. Read more

Morning Chatter

“I look forward to your Twitter following giving me a hard time for the next three weeks.” — CNN’s Piers Morgan to TWT Senior Opinion Editor Emily Miller, who appeared on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Live” last night to discuss her new book, Emily Gets Her Gun. Morgan is a heated anti-gun activist.

THE SIX MUSKETEERS? “This was a Wolf Blitzer idea.” — PBS’s Gwen Ifill. (From L to R: Scott Pelley, Ifill, Chris Wallace, Diane Sawyer, Wolf Blitzer and Savannah Guthrie.)

Uh oh. Who screwed up?

“So…ABC News says George Zimmerman is in custody and AP says he isn’t. Who’s right?” — Eric Deggans, soon-to-be NPR’s TV critic. When others suggested the facts may pertain to the words “in custody,” he wrote, “I think using the term ‘in custody’ for anything other than arrest is seriously misleading.”

And this…“CNN now reporting that NO GUN was involved in Zimmerman incident. Whuh? Could the media have gotten it wrong about Zimmerman again?” — Breitbart‘s John Nolte.

And this…“So many of y’all clicked the Zimmerman story link it crashed our server!” — TV One morning host Roland Martin.

In conclusion… CNN reporting this morning as of 8:28 a.m. that Zimmerman was detained but not arrested: “After he was initially detained by officers, George Zimmerman was interviewed at the house by detectives, Lake Mary police spokesman Zach Hudson said.”

Everything sounds more exotic in French

“Pour voir @HillaryClinton parler de la #Syrie à la Maison Blanche, c’est ici” — AFP‘s Tangi Quéméner. Loosely translated from 6th grade French, former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton‘s coming to the White House.

Important Q to Ponder: “Getting my first professional haircut in 12 years tonight. Do I have to bring a picture of a celebrity or something?” — Chris Wilson, interactive graphics editor for TIME.
