IFC’s Make Media Matter Event

If you follow us on Twitter, you might have caught a few my snarktastic tweets from IFC’s Make Media Matter event that was held at the Newseum this afternoon.

Here are a few highlights:

We learned that Tucker Carlson is “not black” but he does think that the price of computers has come down significantly in recent years. He apparently purchased 30 for his office recently.

NPR’s Juan Williams slammed FNC’s Greta Van Susteren with only a few seconds on the clock: “People watch Greta and they think they are watching a news show.”

Even with the time constraint, Van Susteren fired back: “At least people watch.”

CNN’s John King is a self-proclaimed “dinosaur.”

George Stephanopoulos
was locked in the stairway pre-show. Luckily for him, FishbowlDC heard his knock. We also found out that Steph doesn’t believe magazine covers have any influence on the 24 hour news cycle and that his asst. kinda hates me – join the club.

Someone accidentally walked away with Liz Glover‘s Mac but we hear it is safe and sound and back with its momma.

There is life after MTV…don’t believe me? Ask Gideon Yago, the show’s host/moderator.

IFC Media Project airs Sundays at 11:00 pm.
