Richard Engel via Skype

NBC “Meet The Press” host David Gregory hosted a new discussion series hosted by Comcast Corp. at its gleaming new offices on Tuesday night by moderating what they referred to as a “star-studded” panel on “Covering the Middle East: Perspectives from the Field.” Well, J.Lo and Britney were no-shows. But NBC’s Andrea Mitchell and Ron Allen talked policy while their colleague Richard Engel gave a “boots on the ground” perspective directly from Cairo via Skype. The NYT’s Helene Cooper and NPR Twitter maven Andy Carvin rounded out the panel, which included a vigorous examination of the impact of social media not only on the journalists’ own jobs but also on burgeoning democratic movements around the world.

NYT’s Helene Cooper Wins Urbino Press Award

Italian Ambassador Giulio Terzi announced Wednesday night that the recipient of the 2011 Urbino Press Award is Helene Cooper, White House Correspondent for NYT. The award is given each year to an American journalist “for distinguished reporting on the ever-changing world.”  Cooper, born in Monrovia, Liberia, had to flee the country after the 1980 coup. She wrote about her experiences in the war-torn African country in her memoir, The House at Sugar Beach.

Previous winners include: ABC’s Martha Raddatz, NYT Columnist Thomas Friedman, WaPo’s David Ignatius and NPR’s Diane Rehm.

Cooper’s remarks: “I’m incredibly honored to receive this year’s Urbino Press Award, for both professional and personal reasons. Professionally, I’m thrilled and humbled to share a stage with David Ignatius, Tom Friedman and Martha Raddatz—they are all first-rate chroniclers of the world around us. And personally for me,  there is no higher honor than being recognized by the cultural heirs of Baldassare Castiglione, Elisabetta Gonzaga and Federico da Montefeltro—a trio who epitomized Renaissance cool as far as I’m concerned. Grazie mille, Urbino.”

Cooper is scheduled to receive her prize in a ceremony in Urbino on June 3.

Obama Scene Compared to Michael Jackson in Tokyo

TIPS FROM THE POOL…INTO THE DEEP END


For anyone who has ever been around President Obama when children start screaming in his midst, it’s quite a sight. Today NYT‘s Helene Cooper describes one such scene at an elementary school.

Second unannounced stop…Sycamore Elementary, where around 300 deliriously excited and screaming kids lined up outside.
Did pool mention screaming? Think Michael Jackson in Tokyo type screaming. “Omigod he touched me! He touched me!” Yelled one little girl in pink. “He’s right up there!” Yelled one boy.

Potus worked the rope line, grinning, as wave after wave of kids grabbed his hand, fell back, then rushed up to grab his hand again, double dipping.

This stop lasted 7 minutes.

‘The Beast’ Goes to Portland

THE DEEP END…TIPS FROM THE POOL

Here’s a snippet of the scene from NYT White House Correspondent Helene Cooper when President Obama landed at Air National Guard Base in Portland, Ore. late Wednesday afternoon.

Under a beautiful sunset, Potus worked the rope line of about 50 people at the air base. He was also met by childhood friend Greg Orme, who brought his wife and newborn, to ride motorcade. So “the beast” is sporting a baby on board child seat.

POTUS Reminder: Don’t Take Clothes Off In Front of Pool

THE DEEP END…TIPS FROM THE POOL

POTUS met with a family in Columbus, Ohio this morning around a kitchen table. NYT‘s Helene Cooper had the details on what happened there as well as President Obama’s sudden warning to son, Josh: Keep your clothes on!

Rhonda Weithman was very dressed up for a morning in her kitchen, with high heeled black pumps and a cute cocktail dress. …She then told Potus something about son Josh that caused Potus to look at Josh and say “That’s pretty manly of you. You have a pretty cool scar there. Obviously that got Mom a little worried, huh? A little stressed.”
Josh looked like he was about to show Potus the scar but Potus then hastily told him not to take his clothes off in front of the pool, which was quickly ushered out.
