Journos Who Could Be Porn Stars (Part II)

We recently brought you 10 Washington journalists whose names (only) could qualify them for a certain other profession – the list included such great potentials as Daily Caller intern Gabe Finger, Politico‘s Ginger Gibson and CQ Roll Call‘s Jason Dick. We firmly stand by those choices. But we quickly realized there are clearly 10 more. And hey, it’s August, so if there’s a stray from Manhattan we’re still letting him or her on the list.

See who made the cut…

Asked if there was one journalist Gale would want to read her book, she named co-worker Neda Semnani. “She gives great book reviews,” Gale said, adding that Semnani, who co-writes the Heard on the Hill gossip column, would offer an “honest assessment” of the book.

Gale also named her former boss Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va) as someone who should read it. “He would love it,” she said. (That’s somewhat intriguing, considering the book is a love story involving government secrets. Hmm…)

There were plenty of finger foods and bevys at the soiree, much of which was unidentifiable at first glance. But the best part was the tiny cupcakes, decorated with little edible versions of Gale’s book.

The cupcakes, we’re told, were enjoyed by CQ Roll Call Publisher Peter Anthony‘s two young boys, who were told upon entering by Anthony to “stand right here” against a wall… Read more

NJ Hires the ‘Wicked Smart’ Susan Davis and Fawn Johnson

<img alt="davis.jpg" src="/fishbowlDC/files/original/davis.jpg" width="200" class="alignleft" hspace="3" vspace="3"/ WSJ political blog writer Susan Davis and Dow Jones Newswire and WSJ‘s Fawn Johnson are joining the National Journal Group.

The new website launches in the fall.

Both women are longtime Washington journalists. And for both, going to work for NJ is a homecoming of sorts. This isn’t Davis’s first stint at NJ. Davis (pictured here) previously worked for CongressDaily. Her first job there was in the research department of the Almanac of American Politics. This also isn’t Johnson’s first job at NJ. She previously covered health care, labor and immigration for CongressDaily.

Congratulations to both Davis and Johnson.

More details on Susan and Fawn after the jump…

“Fawn and Sue are both wicked smart and deeply sourced journalists who know how to dig beyond the talking points and spin to give our readers and subscribers the news they need to know,” said Editor-in-Chief Ron Fournier.
