Conservative Talkers Get Columns at TWT and The Hill

David Webb

David Webb

It’s a good day to be a conservative, syndicated radio show host. Both The Hill and The Washington Times announced today the addition of conservative radio personalities to their stable of opinion columnists.

David Webb‘s first column for The Hill starts running today and will alternate every Wednesday with a column from James Carville. Webb is a Fox News contributor, host of his own SiriusXM radio show, and a spokesman for the National Tea Party Federation.

And Steve Deace, a rising conservative voice in the Midwest, is joining TWT as a regular contributor to its opinion team. Deace, will contribute to a re-vamped Washington Times’ Communities portal, which is slated to launch later this month. Communities was temporarily shuttered last month following a spate of incidents involving inaccurate reporting. Deace will also provide TWT readers with regular updates about the early stages of the 2016 presidential caucuses in his home state of Iowa, and there are plans to distribute his nationally-syndicated program to TWT audience later this spring.

Both hires come as several DC pubs attempt to diversify the platforms across which they distribute content. The Hill has started producing web videos to accompany much of their online content, for example. And TWT Editor John Solomon recently initiated a re-org at that paper which, among other changes, replaced their traditional Copy Desk with a “platform agnostic” Universal Desk. Moreover, tapping into the large talk-radio audience is smart business for an industry that’s seeing print circulation drop year after year.

Afternoon Reading List 10.30.13

morningreadinglistresized

MSNBC tops CNN in October: The October Nielsen ratings are in, and MSNBC has finished second, behind Fox news, for the month. Huzzah! All three of the major networks (CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News) are showing drastic decreases in their numbers compared to this time last year. This is most likely due to the 2012 election and the start of Hurricane Sandy coverage that dominated all three major news networks.

Why you should read it: The two pictures at the top of the piece are of a happy Rachel Maddow and a sad Anderson Cooper. They look like the Comedy and Tragedy masks! Read more here.

The Ragin’ Cajun rips D.C. journalism: Yesterday evening, James Carville contributed an opinion piece to The Hill. His opinion? Well, he said that the D.C. journalism class’s coverage of the government shutdown made him “want to stick a fork in (his) eye.” Ouch. Carville blames the media for not clearly articulating that the shutdown did have a winner and a loser by comparing it to sports. Specifically, he cites the Broncos beating the Redskins this past Sunday, likening the Broncos to the Democrats and the Redskins to the Republicans.

Why you should read it: Carville is stompin’ mad at the media, and the analogy he uses with the football game is pretty clever and spot on. Read more here.

Cover: The Atlantic‘s October, 2013

The October 2013 issue of The Atlantic is out!

Subject Matter: How Sports Are Ruining High School

Synopsis: “The United States routinely spends more tax dollars per high-school athlete than per high-school math student—unlike most countries worldwide. In the cover story, Amanda Ripley takes a look at what happens when schools priorities academics over athletics. Take Premont Independent School District, outside Corpus Christi, Texas. Facing the threat of closure for financial mismanagement and academic failure, the high school scrapped its pricey sports program entirely. Even the beloved football team.” Read full story here.

Carville to Pen Column for The Hill

Blustery and comical Democratic pundit James Carville is joining the ranks of ex-Clinton pollster Dick Morris and FNC’s Juan Williams and will start writing a bi-weekly column for The Hill. In a conversation with Washingtonian‘s Carol Joynt, Carville boasted about being on the front page of today’s paper.

“James’ voice is among the most recognized in politics,” said The Hill‘s Editor-in-Chief Hugo Gurdon in a statement. “We are so pleased to include his unique take on current affairs. James will be an ideal complement to our diverse and prominent line-up of contributors.”

Nobody Puts Donna in the Corner

Democratic pundit Donna Brazile is always in the mood to dance.

So she informed FishbowlDC recently when asked about the Points of Life Conference at which she danced with FNC’s Karl Rove and Bill O’Reilly. At the conference she introduced Rove and former Obama advisor David Plouffe.

She did what?

That’s right. Brazile is friendly with her pundit pals no matter what side of the aisle they’re on and she isn’t ashamed. On air she might hold fast to her lefty causes, but off, she bonds with all  of ‘em — Rove, O’Reilly, Carlson, Will, Begala, Carville and more. (If you don’t believe us, watch her dance with Rove via BuzzFeed here.)

“Karl and I have been friends for a long time,” Brazile told FishbowlDC. …”Rove is fun especially when he’s not plotting a campaign to defeat you.” She continued on with a flurry of pundit namedropping:  “Also have dance pics with Wolf Blitzer. Plouffe gave me a great hug. Oh, add Tucker Carlson, Antonio Villeragosos et al [sic]. Been dancing since I learned how to walk. If the music moves you, you gotta dance.” (Might want to work on that spelling of LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, but we get the picture!)

She wasn’t finished. “I call George Will when I want to attend a baseball game, Ed Gillespie for business tips, Paul Begala for reality checks and James Carville for down home cooking,” she said. “He makes the best Cajun burgers. My motto is to find the good and praise it.”

Brazile says she connects with O’Reilly because he’s passionate about the Wounded Warrior Project – a favorite of her father, a Korean Vet who passed away last year.  “My friends span the partisan divide,” she said. “And many are simply non-partisan and dislike politics.”

 

What’s ‘Not Looking Good’ For NBC’s Betsy Fischer Martin?

Betsy Fischer Martin, Executive Producer for NBC’s “Meet the Press,” did Thursday morning what so many of us have done before: Tweeted something that was never meant to be tweeted.

“Tell them we are not looking good and we don’t want to prevent him from going elsewhere,” the ominous tweet said before it was quickly deleted.

What could it possibly mean?

We went straight to the source for answers. “Glad you are on deleted tweet watch – the world is truly a safer place,” Fischer Martin told FishbowlDC in an email. “It was actually part of something I had in my cut/paste clipboard that I somehow pasted into a tweet on my blackberry. Silly me. Thank goodness it was vague and clean!”

She continued, calling her tweet “a true Washington mystery that will no doubt capture the attention of millions of Fishbowl readers dying to know the meaning of all those pronouns!”

But she didn’t tell us what the message was about or who it was intended for. We’re left to guess that on our own. So here’s our best guesses as to what’s “not looking good” for Fischer Martin… Read more
