Convo among broadcast journos

This morning’s conversation is among ABC President Ben Sherman, Senior WH Correspondent Jake Tapper and ABC Senior Political Correspondent Jonathan Karl.

SHERWOOD: I put that in the same category as lima beans.

TAPPER: I have studiously refrained from bringing up the shocking lima bean incident in a public venue.

SHERWOOD: Do not snub the butter bean!

KARL: The lima bean revelation was a shocking one.

Quotes of the Day

“I like it, it’s not true, but it’s all fun.” — MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, who couldn’t stop playing SNL’s impersonator of himself on his program Monday. The impersonator accentuated Matthews’ propensity to interrupt his guests, a behavior which he somehow has no clue that he does.

Politico’s White: ‘I Do Not Drink’

We just had a pretty big sports weekend here in D.C. The Washington Nationals won their first playoff game since 1933. The Orioles took on the powerhouse New York Yankees. Our hometown football team lost again. OK, well, that isn’t exactly exciting, but baseball is big among the beltways of D.C. and Baltimore. Naturally, this leads to otherwise politically minded journos to share their sports team biases (and vengeance) on Twitter.

Politico’s Ben White went so far as to change his avatar to the Yankees logo on the day they were taking on the Orioles. This aggravated The Daily Caller’s Jeff Poor to the point of telling White, “God you have an awful avatar.”  White fired back, “So does your mom.” And that set the scene for an evening of back and forth between the pair that grew nastier with each tweet. Poor replied, “I see Politico provides a drinking allowence(sic).” White let Poor know that he does not drink, but thoughtfully informed Poor of his typo: “You should work on spelling ‘allowance.’”

Things went from bad to worse.

White: “If you had any idea how inappropriate this joke is…” He followed up with punishment for Poor, saying, “You are getting blocked young man. I suggest you try adult education classes. They do wonders for folk like you.” An unapologetic Poor shot back:

We reached out to the two men to find out where things went SO wrong… Read more

French Maid Spices Up Daily Caller Book Party

What was initially thought to be a special appearance by David Martosko‘s personal secretary at last night’s Daily Caller book launch party ended up being nothing of the sort.

To the left is a photo of Nandi, who works with Emperor Vodka, which sponsored the soiree. “I’m just here for pictures,” she said, graciously posing for cameras. Nandi, whose arms are reminiscent of Angela Bassett‘s What’s Love Got to Do with It, said this was her first time working with Emperor. Fun first day on the job!

The Daily Caller hosted the party in its Farragut Square newsroom celebrating The Lizard King, an ebook written by their own Jamie Weinstein and Will Rahn.

“I have no good answer,” said Rahn when asked who should read his book. “It’s a transformative book,” he said (“transformational” also works). He compared it to reading the Bible. “Is this off the record?” Rahn asked at the conclusion of our interview.

Weinstein was a little more willing to talk about the book, though we get the impression he thought he was on TV. “Truth-seekers will like it,” Weinstein said. He emphasized that the book is actually a manuscript provided by a White House insider and that he and Rahn are simply the vessels through which the book is being delivered. “Once in a while, history falls upon you and I think it happened to us,” he said, adding that it “may be one of the most important books since [Fox News host] Sean Hannity’s book.”

The Daily Caller‘s bar was stocked with wine, soda, alcohol and a beer tap that poured Pabst Blue Ribbon. Edibles (vegetables and a few hors d’oeurves) were a little on the slim side.

As guests trickled in, a couple faces stood out in the crowd: Politico‘s Byron Tau and Tim Mak. The DC and Politico have been known to publicly quibble in the past. One Daily Caller staffer said the relationship between the two publications “on paper” is often not the case between individual reporters. He said there are several Politico employees he regularly drinks with. Both Tau and Mak chatted with The DC‘s Alex Pappas for a while, as well.

In the crowd we also spotted a distinguished gentleman with a badass eye patch. It turned out to be Will Rahn’s father, ex-husband to WSJ‘s Peggy Noonan.

The DC‘s editor Tucker Carlson was seen talking with RollCall‘s Jonathan Strong, a former Daily Caller reporter. Strong said work for him has been slow and “a little boring,” given he covers Congress, which is currently out of session.

Notables: The Daily Caller‘s Alex Treadway, Sarah Hoffman, Taylor Bigler, Jeff Poor, Caroline May, Brian Danza, Chris Bedford, Neil Munro, Pat McMahon, Nicole Roeberg, and Vince Coglianese; The Free Beacon‘s Adam Kredo and CJ Ciaramella; RollCall HOH‘s Neda Semani and Warren Rojas; Fox News contributor Jim Pinkerton; WaPo‘s Alexandra Petri; U.S. NewsSteven Nelson; The Daily Beast‘s Eli Lake; and Donald Rumsfeld‘s former chief of staff Keith Urbahn. Conspicuously absent were Matthew Boyle and Martosko, who had kid duty. We rode the elevator with him down to the garage. He puffed away on what may have been an illegal cigar the whole way down and said Rahn and Weinstein would know he was there “in spirit.”

Quotable:

  • “He’s a bit of a self promoter.”– Keith Urbahn on his former boss Donald Rumsfeld, who was Defense Secretary under former Prez George W. Bush. Urbahn spilled that Rummy is currently working on a new book. UPDATE: Urbahn writes in to tell us he was talking about his other former boss, The Daily Beast‘s David Frum.
  • Asked about former and recently fired Daily Caller reporter Michelle Fields, Daily Caller Editor-in-Chief Tucker Carlson said, “I haven’t seen her much on TV lately. That ended for some reason.” Fields was not in attendance.
  • “I don’t want to be written about.”– Steven Nelson, after FishbowlDC inquired about his job at U.S. News, which he only recently started.
  • “I’m holding out for the chance that Matthew Boyle shows up.”– FBDC’s Peter Ogburn.

 

When is a Scoop Not a Scoop?

On Tuesday evening, shockwaves blasted through the Twitterverse as the Drudge Report website put up a siren and claimed to be dropping a bombshell that would rock this Presidential election. A story from The Daily Caller would be unveiled on Fox News at 9pm ET that Drudge calls the “EXCLUSIVE RELEASE OF ‘UNSCRUBBED’ OBAMA VIDEO.” Could this be the rumored “Whitey” tape? Could it be Obama dressed as Malcolm X for Halloween? WHAT COULD IT BE????

Drudge and The Daily Caller gave hints by releasing excerpts of what to expect when the tape aired. In doing this, it propped opened the door for people to rush online and try to find what was in the video before it even aired. Leading this charge were the muckrakers at Buzzfeed, who seemed to find the speech in a matter of minutes. Daily Caller’s media reporter, Jeff Poor quickly weighed in, tweeting, “Question: Why is @Buzzfeed working so hard to get to the smoking gun in this video? You guys can’t wait until 9 pm? Go have dinner… Relax ” Journos from all over Twitter took Poor’s bait and began arguing over who had the right to scoop this story. Politico’s Jake Sherman responded to Poor saying, “It’s called journalism. They want to be first. The name of the game.” He went on and tweeted, “Of course an outlet would try to chase it. Why not? We’re all competitive!”  Buzzfeed’s McKay Coppins weighed in and asked Poor, “Better question: Why are you waiting until 9:00 pm to publish the ‘smoking gun?’” Poor’s response was simply, “Umm.. because we can. But if you get off of Twitter, you might beat us by 9 if you keep up this great detective work.”

In the end, Tucker Carlson went on Sean Hannity’s show Tuesday night and aired the videos which, by most accounts, fell flat. So, who ended up with the scoop? Did Buzzfeed cross any journalistic lines? Or did The Daily Caller tip their hand too early?
