Morning Chatter

Quotes of the Day

“Getting ready for my new gig at @CNN. Is @wolfblitzer ready for THIS?!?!” — CNN’s newest employee John Berman, who is going to work on CNN’s morning program “Early Start.”

TV anchor shows off necklace

“Wearing today.. Awesome gift from sis. Necklace that doubles as a looking glass.” — NBC Washington’s Angie Goff.

In Seersucker Hell

“At a summer wedding in Georgia. There is seersucker here. Kill me.” — Contributor Jeff Emanuel.


Douchey or Doocy?

“Pistachios- smart snack on a NY to DC train? The man next to me seems to think so #AreWeThereYet? #Amtrak” — FNC’s Peter Doocy. We’re calling Doocy on this one. Pistachio eaters are the WORST.

Journo Love

“@washingtonweek Gwen, has anyone ever told you that you have really awesome reporters on your roundtable?” — WaPo‘s Karen Tumulty to PBS’s Gwen Ifill.

And Journo Hate

“Good luck @michellemalkin finishing 3rd grade. Your classmates wouldn’t sound as stupid/uninformed on TV as you did today on FNC.” — Current TV’s David Shuster to Conservative Commentator Michelle Malkin. He continued, “Maybe @michellemalkin didn’t bother to read anything on today’s topic because the words had too many syllables for her.” Shuster got his panties in a twist about Malkin saying that “the privilege claim proves Obama was at center of F&F. She was wrong + should apologize.” Last week Shuster attacked MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell for running what many have deemed to be a shortened, biased clip of a Mitt Romney campaign speech involving Wawa convenient stores.

Spotted: If journos wanted to interview D.C. Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton this weekend, they would have found her at Home Depot Saturday afternoon buying flowering plants. She was solo, dressed in beige with dark shades and appeared to be in good spirits.

“Spotted @brianefallon going into fudruckers. Apparently flaking makes you hungry for fried mounds of delicious pink slime.” — Outgoing Roll Call reporter and new Buzzfeed D.C. Bureau Chief John Stanton.

Journo to airline: F&@k you!

Unnecessary Tweet of the Day

“Rather improbably, I seem to be listening to a new Smashing Pumpkins album.” — Slate‘s second-tiered Boybander Matt Yglesias. He could have also easily won the prize for this: “New personal first: used duct tape to repair a duct.” Hey Matty, how about wrapping it over your typing fingers?

Journo Apologizes For Poor Taste

RedState Contributor Jeff Emanuel was a little trigger happy last night. He received enormous flack after tweeting the following: “Poor Sarah Palin – she was about to have a whole night of attention all to herself, and then Steve Jobs had to go and die.”

Ultimately he apologized and added a variety of appropriately compassionate messages on Jobs. “Re my Palin/Jobs tweet: Yall are right. It was classless and shouldn’t have been said,” he wrote after getting clobbered online.
