ringingphoneNYT‘s Dean Baquet scolds persistent reporter

Even when the author of the story chooses to try to use cheap tricks to goad people into covering his obsessions. good luck.” — NYT Managing Editor Dean Baquet in an email Wednesday to our resident phone enthusiast and investigative freelancer Evan Gahr. He explained to FBDC, “I sent him two other emails about this and also left two messages. And I hung up on his secretary one time when she answered the phone.” Gahr quickly snarked back at Baquet by email, saying: “Wait. Washington DC is simply a ‘medium-sized city’ as you call it. I thought it was actually our nation’s capital. Silly me. As for ‘obsessions’ the New York Times is normally obsessed with alleged race discrimination–except, of course, when the alleged perpetrators are fellow members of your liberal coven.”

Good Question: “So, do eight car trains return on Metro tomorrow?” — C-SPAN’s Jeremy Art.

Stalking journos

Bio of the Day: She dined with the Prez. Does Michelle know?

She has dined with the President, profiled Michelle Bachmann, and has appeared on TV numerous times, including times on Fox, Friends, and Countdown with Keith Olbermann. She will also discuss how the media landscape and political journalism has changed thanks to social networking and technological tools.”

UPDATE: Bellantoni wrote in to clarify a couple things. First off, as an Institute of Politics fellow at Harvard this fall,  the blurb above is from one of her undergraduate student liaisons to advertise her weekly study group via Facebook and via internal Harvard list servs.  Secondly, there is a student typo, which she had them correct weeks back – it should read Fox & Friends. Duly noted.

CNN Senior Political Editor Mark Preston: “Just watched 13 and counting fishing boats leave #Hatteras aboard ferry from #Ocracoke.”

Liquid weekend

“Margarita. Sun. Water. Stir. Serve.”– LAT and Chicago Tribune writer James Oliphant in a weekend tweet.

The judge has spoken: Nir Rosen

“How sad to call yourself a journalist and cover a royal wedding.” — Lefty journo Nir Rosen in a weekend tweet. This stellar critique coming from a man who, back in February, promised to get off Twitter after he made admittedly tasteless remarks about CBS’s Lara Logan being sexually assaulted in Egypt. Among other things he wrote, “It would have been funny if it happened to Anderson [Cooper] too.” How soon Rosen forgets saying, “I feel like shrinking now.” What’s he have against royal wedding coverage?

Ezra marvels at Britney’s career trajectory

“Sort of amazed that Britney Spears is still around and making hits. Has anyone done a great ‘Britney Spears: Survivor’ profile?” — WaPo‘s liberal blogger Ezra Klein in a weekend tweet. He then links to an article by the esteemed TV host Carson Daly, who cries about how sad he is that Britney is “crawling back into the womb” of the record industry. Daly’s show, “Last Call,” airs at 1:35 a.m. ET. First Ez expresses that he loves “Ice Loves Coco,” now this. Whatever metamorphosis is happening, we’re just relieved Klein has expanded his reading repertoire from CJR.

Journo has Metro rage

The Critic

“You know it’s a bad day for news when half of @mikeallen‘s Playbook is Jon Huntsman news.” — Mediaite‘s Frances Martel in a weekend tweet.

Strange coincidence?

“7:02a and still no AM Joe mention of Schultz…” — Conservative commentator Laura Ingraham in a Thursday morning tweet. On Tuesday Schultz called her a “slut” and “talk slut”" on his radio program and last night he apologized to her repeatedly. Looks like forgiveness is not happening.

“I’m guessing Ed Schultz won’t be appearing on Morning Joe’s “Knowing Your Value” program this morning.” — NJ‘s media writer Amanda Munoz Temple in a Thursday morning tweet.
