Politico Releases Year in Review Video Part II

As promised, Politico released Part II of their video Year in Review series this morning. The same reporters are involved — Jeanne Cummings, Mike Allen, Kenneth Vogel, Nia-Malika Henderson and Patrick Gavin.

Topics addressed include Town Hall Meetings (watch for the man in a Hawaiian shirt getting irate), Obama’s Pulitzer, the death of Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) and more.

The video touches on Obama’s perceived larger-than-life persona, with Allen jokingly adding, “Someone told me he should award himself the National Medal of Freedom and get it over with.”

Politico Releases Year In Review Video

Politico reporters came together to create their “2009: Year in Review” video. Included are cameos from Jeanne Cummings, Mike Allen, Jonathan Martin and Patrick Gavin.

“Delicious, that story just kept on giving and I couldn’t get enough of it,” Cummings gushed about the story of Gov. Mark Sanford’s voyage to the “Appalachian Trail” for an extramarital.

Get ready. Part II arrives tomorrow.

Washingtonian Mag Names Its Top 50 DC Journos


Photo by Washingtonian. CBS’s Lara Logan, ABC’s Jan Crawford Greenburg, the Atlantic’s Joshua Green, Hotline’s Amy Walter, the WaPo’s Chris Cillizza, and the NYT’s Charlie Savage.

Washingtonian (and former FishbowlDC’er) Garrett Graff is out with the magazine’s picks for the “50 Top Journalists 2009.”

The list has existed in Washington since 1973 and is always put together based on interviews with various DC journos, though this year’s is particularly unique because of the changing landscape of journalism. Another milestone– for the first time since 1973, neither David Broder or Bob Novak appear, as both retired from what the mag calls “day-to-day journalism” in 2009.

By our count, WaPo leads with ten journos, NYT not far behind with nine and relatively new, Politico has nabbed two well-deserved spots on the list (Mike Allen and Jeanne Cummings). On the TV side, NBC and ABC are tied with three each; CBS and CNN each have two.

Check out the list in its entirety here.
