Morning Chatter

THIS IS CNN: “Wolf! #NavyYardShooting” — HuffPost‘s Jennifer Bendery.

Spotted on the Acela…

“Morning shows apparently repositioning for Tuesday. CNNs Cuomo and CBSs Rose boarding Southbound Acela just now.” — TIME Washington Bureau Chief Michael Scherer.

NBC’s Chuck Todd: the messenger

“I know folks are relishing an opportunity to get out their hatred for media; I’m just trying to provide context for what we got wrong.” — NBC Political Director Chuck Todd.

Trying to piece together facts

“In the last 15 seconds on one radio i heard 9 dead…8 dead and 6 dead — are they not listening to each other?” — FNC’s Greta Van Susteren.

Words of media wisdom…

“It’s pretty clear at this point that nothing is ever learned from one royal breaking news f’ up to the next.” — Politico‘s Ben White.

“Know what? If you or I RT something, we endorse it. (Maybe not views themselves, but as accurate news.) Any disclaimer otherwise: bullshit.” — National Journal “The Hotline’s” Scott Bland.

“If the wrong person was named in today’s shooting, I hope he sues the news orgs and wins, a la Richard Jewell. Pathetic. #journalism.” — Brad Phillips, who writes the Mr. Media Training blog.

“Two things that never work out. Ever. 1.) Saying ‘Don’t you know who I am?’
2.) Rushing to be 1st with unverified facts. First is not best.” — Pittsburgh Tribune-Review‘s Salena Zito.

“It’s always conflicting law enforcement sources…” — BuzzFeed Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith.

“So basically every piece of information that’s come out about the shooting so far today has been wrong.” — WCP‘s Aaron Weiner.

“Did we learn nothing from Sandy Hook and the Boston bombing? Stop reporting wild rumors like it’s fact.” — Washington Examiner‘s Steve Contorno.

“Here’s an idea. Rather than tweet out competing reports, perhaps we could wait a little bit and report out confirmed reports.” — Mo Elleithee, DNC Communications Director.

“Okay, turning off Twitter for now because developing news and social media don’t mix.” — J.P. Freire at 11:37 a.m. Monday.

10 Journos You Don’t Want to Fight on Twitter

We’re not sure what we did for entertainment before we could watch what probably should be journalists’ private feuds unfold in public on Twitter. For all the talk about teens who have no social-networking shame, there are a few grownups in the media who haven’t seemed to learn the lesson either. Some days, our Washington Twitter lists look more like a Beltway Fight Club than they do a group of media elites.

Not that we’re complaining. We do need something to watch between episodes of Veep and Scandal reruns, and the journalists on our list below don’t disappoint. Fair warning though—if you take some of them on, you doing so at your own risk.

Honorable mentions: The Daily Caller’s Jim Treacher, Conservative radio host Dana Loesch, WaPo‘s Greg Sargent, the DNC’s communications director, Brad Woodhouse, and NRSC’s Brad Dayspring. If you don’t think Dayspring can fight, read this story published last night in which he was referred to as a “rabid dog.”

Here it is, FishbowlDC’s 10 Journalists You Don’t Want to Fight on Twitter:

Quotes of the Day

“I think I can call you Joe now that you’re not in the Congress anymore.”Bloomberg View columnist Jonathan Alter on MSNBC’s Martin Bashir‘s program Monday while arguing with former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-N.Y.). “Yeah, yeah,” the former lawmaker replied, unruffled by Alter’s obvious disdain for him. Walsh spent two years in Congress with his term ending in 2013.

Politico reporter will no longer read New York Post

“No joke, I’m sort of unwilling to read anything in the New York Post after last week. That may not pass.” — Politico‘s Dylan Byers. GASP! Will they go out of business as a result? Last week NYP falsely reported that 12 people at the Boston Marathon had been killed when only three had died. They also ran a photograph of two men with the headline “Bag Men: Feds seek these two pictured at Boston Marathon” but they weren’t the right guys. In yet another report, they wrote that a Saudi national was a suspect. Boston police later denied the report.

Au de Metro: “Someone on this Metro train smells intensely of moth balls.” — Josh Lederman, White House reporter for the AP.

Eavesdrop Cafe with Washingtonian‘s Fashion Editor

“I’m sorry, I don’t usually do this, but there is a first date happening next to me at this bar that is a soundbite festival of goodness.” — Washingtonian Fashion Editor Kate Bennett. “Here’s a snippet: ‘I mean, I don’t sweat a lot, but when I do it’s pretty bad.’ …’When I do go to a potluck, I always bring something. Always.’”

Goldberg gets hate mail over story on Hagel

“The hate mail I get for saying that Chuck Hagel is friendly to Israel is very hatey. Here’s what they’re reacting to.” — The Atlantic‘s Jeffrey Goldberg, who links to this Bloomberg View story he wrote with the headline: “Israel Welcomes Hagel, a Friend Bearing Gifts.”

Eddie Scarry contributed to this report.

Quotes of the Day

“You really shouldn’t sleep this week. Professionally, it’s unadvisable.”Matt Spence of The Times of London.

Kudos to Boston Globe

“Great work all night by #bostonglobe team covering Watertown/MIT mayhem.” — WaPo Executive Editor Marty Baron, who has to be kicking himself right now for leaving the Boston Globe late last year to come to Washington.

A Social Media editor learns lessons

“I think I learned my lesson to wait for confirmation about what network/cable reporters say their ‘sources’ tell them.” — Reuters Social Media Editor Anthony De Rosa.

Huh?

“‘I don’t know if that’s a fashion statement or what.’–guy on CNN, inspecting sunglasses on face of Boston suspect.#seriously” — HuffPost‘s Jennifer Bendery.

Up all night with Jake Tapper

“When Jake Tapper is at the helm at CNN, CNN is what it’s supposed to be.” — Former White House Speechwriter Jon Lovett.

“God love @jaketapper: Almost everything he says begins with ‘Here’s what we don’t know…’ #JohnKingLesson” — Don Van Natta Jr., Senior Writer for ESPN.

“Hmm. @Jaketapper is really good in this sort of situation. Calm solid presence.” — Daily Caller columnist Mickey Kaus.

Network redemption plan

“CNN took ton of heat earlier, but props tonite-only news net going live w nu photo+MIT shooting. Isn’t that what news net is supposed to do?NYT TV Industry reporter Bill Carter.

“CNN should replay the interview with Dr. David Schoenfeld for laughs. Every A: “I can’t tell you that.” WHY ARE YOU ON THE PHONE W/CNN?” — Conservative commentator Ann Coulter, who also wrote this morning: “It’s too bad Suspect #1 won’t be able to be legalized by Marco Rubio, now.”

A word of advice: “I don’t actually recommend going back to sleep, just did it, had bad nightmares.” — Dave Stroup, digital director for Aneesh Chopra for Va. Lt. Gov. 

The Observers

“One thing I learned serving in Lebanon is that young men & boys  with guns/bombs can be deadliest as they’ve yet to appreciate value of life.” — Peter Daou, political blogger and advisor.

“If these two are actually foreign trained terrorists, then this is the event we’ve been fearing; small-scale attacks on the softest targets.” — The Atlantic‘s Jeffrey Goldberg.

In awe of NBC’s Pete Williams (who broke the names of the Boston Bombing suspects)

“Pete Williams is a machine.” — BuzzFeed‘s Rosie Gray.

“Journalism professors take note: @PeteWilliamsNBC has put on a free journalism clinic all week.” — Chris Donovan, producer, NBC News/”MTP.”

“Pete Williams is dominating all the “social media experts” on Twitter by… reporting.” — Andrew Golis, Boston-based director of digital and senior editor at PBS’s “Frontline.”

“Yay Pete.” — PBS’ Gwen Ifill. She later added, “FYI for all new @PeteWilliamsNBC fans, he’s been on this beat for bout 20 years #ExperienceMatters”

“How does @PeteWilliamsNC not have 100K Twitter followers? (Hint, Peter, start tweeting).” — Justin Green, contributor to The Daily Beast.

“Among the many excellent things about @PeteWilliamsNBC this week: Very clear about what he doesn’t know, or is unsure of.”– The Hill‘s Niall Stanage.

“NBC’s Pete Williams proving that reporters don’t always have to be on the ground to get all the scoops and get them right.” — ThinkProgressIgor Volsky.

Meanwhile, Oversharing Sherri goes to Boot Camp

“Going 2 my 2nd #bootcamp session-anything called “bootcamp” scares me to death, but I must put fear of going over the fear of dying #health” — ABC “The View’s” Sherri Shepherd at 7:30 a.m. this morning as news of the bombers dominated the news cycle.

And NBC Matt Lauer’s bad luck streak continues…

“Meanwhile Matt Lauer is shown live in West, Texas – doesn’t look very happy.” – Washington Examiner‘s Charlie Spiering.

Howard Kurtz’s brilliant morning sentiment

“Wish I hadn’t gone to sleep and missed all the action in Boston. Hope that manhunt ends soon.” — CNN, The Daily Beast-Newsweek‘s Howard Kurtz. (Photo credit: Politico)

At least Weingarten was joking: “You people really should have woken me up last night.” — WaPo’s Gene Weingarten. Read more

Rain Check on Rahm’s Visit

This morning The Atlantic‘s Jeffrey Goldberg was scheduled to interview Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel at The Atlantic offices over on New Hampshire Avenue. But due to bad weather (a flash flood warning) coming out of Chicago, the event ain’t happening. The timing of the event was supposed to be 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

“We very much regret to share that, due to inclement weather coming out of Chicago, the Mayor will no longer be able to join us this morning and we must cancel our meeting. Again we so appreciate your interest and we hope to have you join us for an Atlantic event soon, either a “rain check” version of this session or another.”

In Wake of Tragedy, Journalists Bicker

No judgment here.

But last night Twitter was a curious place to be as we watched clusters of journalists needle one another and, in some cases, go for the throat without real just cause. Sharpened nerves. An inability to piece together what happened. Heightened tensions in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings.

They were primed to fight. For example, since when do retweets really mean endorsements? Really never, except for last night when anything could spark a feud.

So much for the wise and largely unheeded advice from Ruth Graham, contributing writer to The Boston Globe‘s ideas section; freelancer for Slate and The Atlantic: “Guys, if you see a tweet that pisses you off today because it’s rude or dumb or political, maybe consider just ignoring it?”

What, and ignore the chance to take your frayed nerves out on someone else like a rabid dog? We’re vaguely reminded of Glenn Close in the bloody bathtub scene of “Fatal Attraction” and her chilling remark, “I mean, I’m not going to be ignored, Dan.”

Among the two big clusters of brawls was another “Glenn.” This one, Politico‘s Glenn Thrush, who attempted to school CNN’s Chris Cuomo on proper bomb coverage. Cuomo wrote, 1. “#Boston – latest. Two bombs exploded. A 3rd pkg was blown up by auth’s. As many as 3 other possible devices being investigated.” 2. “#Boston authorities still searching. Two crude bombs with ball bearings or shrapnel went off. Other pkgs found may have been non-explosive.” 3. “Being told at this point not ruling out one actor theory.”

Thrush lashed out. “Wait–so how did one guy plant the 8 bombs u told us about earlier? …Not being a wise ass — asking u to think before u press send,” Thrush wrote to Cuomo. The Atlantic‘s Jeffrey Goldberg promptly backed Thrush: “Now on Twitter, Glenn Thrush is teaching Chris Cuomo about journalism. …Just to be clear, I was complimenting Glenn Thrush for teaching Chris Cuomo about the dangers of spreading unconfirmed information.” Cuomo ignored his critics and didn’t respond to any of them.

The other snarl was Politico‘s Dylan Byers versus ClearChannel‘s Colby Hall and BuzzFeed‘s Andrew Kaczynski. Byers, who’s usually pretty mild-mannered on Twitter, and Kaczynski, who occasionally enjoys subtle antagonizing, eventually seemed to warm back up to each other, but not without a few blistering moments when BuzzFeed Editor-in-Chief and Twitter father figure Ben Smith, who at different points hired them both, dove in to effectively say, ‘You’re both right.’ Come on Ben, in a good Twitter fight, opposing sides are never both right! But this morning he declared to some involved parties: “No haters.” But life on Twitter is not always so civilized.

Some more spiritual healing ignored by all: “A crisis depletes your emotions,” wrote megachurch pastor Rick Warren, whose popularly isn’t exactly soaring in the gay community. “You must intentionally replenish them. Make a list of what restores you and do those things.”

Restore? How about a brawl on what the real meaning of “retweet” is. Is it a ringing endorsement or sharing facts or innocently presenting a contrasting viewpoint? If you’re Politico‘s Byers, it’s the latter as he shared a diary piece from the conservative RedState; if you’re ClearChannel‘s Hall it’s the former and it appeared to seriously piss him off. And then Byers used profanity and the whole thing got U.G.L.Y.

Colby Hall: “Why promote some random wacko consipiracy [sic] theory?”

Dylan Byers: “Because it’s indicative of what some on far-right are thinking. will matter later.”

Colby Hall: “Or you are just promoting the acceptance of a half-baked theory that is better left ignored.”

Dylan Byers: “Or you are full of shit.”

Colby Hall: “Whoa!”

Dylan Byers: “I’m not promoting anything. I’m showing parameters of conversation.”

Colby Hall: “Now who’s full of shit?”

Dylan Byers: “You think I’m endorsing fringe speculation because I take note of it? I doubt that.”

Colby Hall: But you didn’t just “take note of it”…you brought attention to it by linking to it. so yeah, you promoted it.

Dylan Byers: “Providing link to an article you don’t necessarily agree with is not promoting it. It’s referencing it.”

Colby Hall: “But editorial judgment isn’t just what you link — it’s what you chose not to link to.”

This is about when Andrew Kaczynski jumped into the fray: Read more
