Awkward Interactions at Heritage Foundation’s Launch of The Daily Signal

20140605_203411

Last night at Sixth Engine, The Heritage Foundation celebrated the Tuesday launch of its new site The Daily Signal, a digital-first, multimedia news platform.

Amidst drinks with clever names like the “Editor in Chief” and the “Teaser” alongside delicious samplings of Korean style chicken tenders, heaping bites of tuna tar tar, and brussels sprouts, FishbowlDC was so rudely interrupted by the self-proclaimed ‘Christian, Conservative, Southern, Zionist, that is Everything the Left hates Heritage Action Legislative Strategist (description a la his Twitter bio).”

During a conversation with a writer for Heritage Action’s blog The Forge, said “strategist” apparently felt threatened by FishbowlDC speaking to his ex-fiance. The “strategist” – who I met just seconds earlier – felt the need to tell me his engagement with whom I was previously speaking ended four weeks ago.

Atlantic Marketing Director Abruptly Leaves

Georgine Anton has abruptly left Atlantic Media to return to Meredith. She was hired to run their new marketing services group and departed after seven months.

News of her hire at Atlantic hit back in September 2011. Adweek described her as a “heavy-hitter” for Meredith. Seems she missed her old stomping grounds. When she left for Atlantic, she had been at Meredith for 12 years.

A company spokeswoman confirmed the news of Anton’s departure and said she left to take a newly-created position with her former longtime employer. Jean Ellen Cowgill, who has played a key role in Atlantic Media’s corporate strategy across all brands over the last two years, will fill Anton’s role. She was named GM and VP of Think Custom Media last week.
