Rising Star Finalists

mblogo.jpgAfter the jump, you’ll find the finalists for FishbowlDC’s Rising Star competition. Congrats to everyone for being nominated and making it into the 2nd round in our first “Rising Star” competition. The winners will accompany mediabistro.com and FishbowlDC to the National Press Foundation Dinner, with a seat next to a high-profile guest (and if you’re a high profile guest who wants to go, let us know).

Plus: We’ll be giving away seats to lucky winners we’ll pick at random. Click here to enter the raffle (send your name, affiliation and contact info).

Now, before you write in to complain about so-and-so not getting included, etc., etc., let’s explain a few things.

1.) If you didn’t get nominated, you didn’t get considered. The pool of contenders was chosen by you.
2.) Some (actually, many) people were not included because, in our opinion, they were already “risen”, not “rising” (For instance: Ed Henry was nominated. Funnily enough, so was Helen Thomas). So, for some of you, it’s a compliment.
3.) We did our best to limit the number of finalists from each publication, from certain beats, and from each medium (print, radio, broadcast, etc.).
4.) Most importantly, we’re well aware that the list is imperfect. We did our best. Our apologies in advance if you felt snubbed. Dorian, Inky and Patrick discussed the finalists but the finalists were mostly determined by consulting with employees at various news organizations for their insight, thoughts and advice.

Okay, so this is how it’s going work: After the jump is the list of finalists. If you’re already attending the National Press Foundation Annual Awards Dinner on February 22, let us know. Unfortunately, we’ll have to remove your name from consideration, since that means you won’t be able to sit with us (*tear*). Also, if you simply don’t want to be considered, please also let us know. Then, with the list tweaked as/if needed, we will open up voting Thursday morning and it will go through Monday.

Taking Out The Trash, 02.02.07

  • This is the one time of year commercials get some love.
  • C-SPAN reports that New York Times Baghdad correspondent John Burns confirms that he’ll remain in Iraq until mid-summer before moving to London to become bureau chief. Burns confirmed it during a taping of Q & A on Friday.
  • In his online chat today, Jonathan Weisman notes, “Reporters on television — and in on-line chats — put themselves into a perilous place. We are supposed to keep our opinions ourselves, and at the same time, be engaging and fun. That said Tom Ricks’ book Fiasco definitely takes a strong point of view, backed up extensively by facts, and no one has jumped
    on him.” (Hat Tip: Romenesko)

  • Julie Mason reports, “A suspcious package prompted the evacuation of the press corps’ temporary White House press room on Jackson Place this morning. A dog apparently sniffed out some explosives in a car parked nearby.” Don’t worry. It was a false alarm.
  • This weekend on C-SPAN2, Book TV will air an “Encore Booknotes” program with columnist Molly Ivins. In 1998, C-SPAN’s Brian Lamb interviewed Ivins about her latest book, “You Got to Dance With Them What Brung You: Politics in the Clinton Years” for the award-winning author interview series “Booknotes.” The interview airs on Saturday at 1:15 pm ET and Sunday at 9:30 a.m ET.
  • RockCritics.com’s Jason Gross picks his best music writing for 2006. Among the winners are the Washington Post’s Philip Kennicott and Hank Stuever. Somewhere, Josh du Lac quietly weeps…and not over concerns that his name isn’t as cool as Russ McCracken’s.
