Highlights from the 8.3.14 Sunday Shows

Cleveland Clinic President and CEO Dr. Toby Cosgrove on NBC’s “Meet the Press” with David Gregory: “I think it’s a terrific sign. And as you know, the incubation period is somewhere between eight and 21 days. And people spread the disease most when they’re sick, now which is a good thing. And it looks to me like he is now in even a recovery stage or has been able to handle it.”

Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the Center for Disease Control, on CBS’s “Face the Nation” with Norah O’Donnell: “I don’t think it’s in the cards that we would have widespread Ebola in this country because the way it spreads in Africa is really two things. First, in hospitals where there isn’t infection control. And second, in burial practices where people are touching the bodies of people who have died from Ebola.  So it’s not going to spread widely in the U.S.  Could we have another person here, could we have a case or two? Not impossible. We say in medicine never say never. But we know how to stop it here.  But to really protect ourselves, the single most important thing we can do is stop it at the source in Africa. That’s going to protect them and protect us.” Read more

Fareed Zakaria to Join Atlantic Media as Contributing Editor

fzakaria-1Atlantic Media today announced that Fareed Zakaria will join The Atlantic and Quartz as a contributing editor in September. In this role, he will write for The Atlantic and participate in AtlanticLIVE and Quartz events.

Zakaria is the host of CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS” and an opinion writer for The Washington Post. His first Atlantic Media event will be Quartz’s The Next Billion: A Connected World November conference in New York.

Zakaria’s contributions will focus on worldwide current events. TheAtlantic.com’s ‘Global Channel’ and Quartz both have large digital audiences outside the US, 30 and 40 percent respectively.

Highlights from 7.27.14 Sunday Shows

Hillary Clinton on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS” answering what Vladimir Putin is ‘like as a man’ : “Well, he’s very tough. He’s a very arrogant person to deal with, which I think is a combination of this vision of Russia and some fundamental insecurity because when you are dealing with him, he often acts as though he couldn’t care less, he’s not interested, even talking with him about getting Russia into the World Trade Organization which is something the Obama administration was determined to do because we want to have a rules based order in so far as possible.”

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright on President Putin on CBS’s “Face the Nation” : “I think that Putin is living in his own world.  He has made up an awful lot of lies in terms of who is responsible for the fact that the Soviet Union disintegrated. He actually called that the greatest disaster of the 2oth century. Hard to believe, when there were two world wars that killed millions of people; among them, Russians. So that’s the first lie. And then he has, in fact, propagandized all that to his own country, and then into central and Eastern Europe. I think what he wants to do is to reestablish himself as the identification of Russian nationalism. And then also to do everything he can to kind of reestablish something akin to the Soviet Union, obviously not that, but a grouping of countries around Russia that are completely subservient to him and to Moscow. And until he can get that, he’s going to work to destabilize Eastern Europe.”

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on NBC’s “Meet the Press” : If you had 2,500 rockets falling on your cities, if you had terror tunnels dug underneath your border to reach your kindergarten, if you had attacks by land, by sea, and by air, of course  take action. You take action, you take military action aplenty. I have no doubt that you would. So does Israel.” Read more

Come On, Get Happy With Time’s New Issue

Are we happy? Not really, according to this week’s Time Magazine cover story—”The Pursuit of Happiness”—by Jeffrey Kluger and Jon Meacham.

They cover what’s uniquely American about the pursuit of happiness (mostly, that we’re free to try and actually pursue being happy) and explain just how stupid we are for usually looking for it in the wrong places. But, there’s a catch. Even when we do look in the right places, it’s harder than ever to achieve happiness, they say, because the world has become just too fast-paced and frenetic.

That last point is debatable, but the story is worth a look for anyone who could use a little more joy in their life. And that’s all of us.

Time also did a poll, asking just how happy we are. Some highlights:

  • Since 2004, the percentage of Americans who identify themselves a optimists has dropped from 79 percent to 50 percent
  • 60 percent said that they do not feel better about themselves after spending time on social media
  • 76 percent believe other people make themselves look happier than they actually are on their Facebook page
Also in this issue, Jon Meacham explains what the founders really meant when they put “pursuit of happiness” in the Declaration of Independence, and Katie Steinmetz breaks down what science says helps us or hurts us in that pursuit in a clever infographic by Heather Jones.
The issue is available online now and hits newsstands Friday.

Reporters Balance Contributor Status

Neda Semnani is a full-time columnist for CQ Roll Call‘s “Heard on the Hill.” Yet there she was last night with a piece about Craigslist sex ads published on BuzzFeed. Was she changing jobs?

Nope. Just working her ass off.

“You know how journalism is today,” she told FishbowlDC when we asked what was going on. “Its all a bit of a hustle, get the stories reported, written and published.”

More and more often reporters are working full-time one place and serving as contributors elsewhere (as I do here at FBDC while working at The Blaze). In many cases, they juggle between publications or they contract with a cable news outlet to serve as on-air commentators.

“It is definitely a challenge to write everyday for my job, freelance and do my own stuff,” Semnani said, “but I feel like I’m still making my bones in this business and this is all trial by fire. If this schedule is what it takes to do it, then that’s just the way it is right now.” Read more
