Joe Mathieu Turns Boston Anchorman

P.O.T.U.S. channel anchor and program director, Joe Mathieu, is leaving Sirius XM for Boston’s WBZ NewsRadio.  After an extensive search, WBZ tapped Mathieu to take the reigns of New England’s top morning radio news broadcast.  It’s a homecoming for Mathieu who hails from northern Connecticut and started his radio career in Boston in 1996.  Joe started covering Washington D.C. in 1998 and spent seven years as managing editor and anchor at the CBS MarketWatch Radio Network before he developed and launched Sirius XM’s P.O.T.U.S. channel in 2007.  Congrats to Joe!

Lanny Davis Lashes Out at NYT, Liberal Media

Lanny Davis raised some eyebrows today by calling out a number of high-profile reporters and commentators in an interview on Sirius XM’s P.O.T.U.S. channel. President Clinton’s former special counsel, now partner at Lanny J. Davis & Associates, spoke out for the first time against a series of stories criticizing his professional relationship with two African dictators, directing his remarks at the New York Times and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Ed Schultz. “Ms. Maddow went after me as being the defender of dictators and corrupt people and whatever the dark side is,” Davis told Sirius XM’s Joe Mathieu. “So I called the next day to say it would be nice if Ms. Maddow allowed me to offer the other side of the story. And I never heard back. And then I called my friend Ed Schultz, I sent him an email, saying could you have me on to tell my side of the story. And he said, ‘You criticized Rachel Maddow; I’m not having you on anymore.’”

Davis also took aim at the New York Times, which ran a story in December calling  him “a kind of front man for the dark side. “Two reporters who worked on this story never called me, and they would have gotten a much different outcome had they called me about other facts that they were omitting in their reporting.”

PBS NewsHour to Join Sirius XM’s P.O.T.U.S. Channel

Sirius XM Radio will broadcast PBS NewsHour, the nightly one-hour news show hosted by veteran journalist Jim Lehrer, weeknights at 6 p.m. ET beginning February 7 on P.O.T.U.S.

P.O.T.U.S bills itself as the “non-partisan” 24/7 news channel dedicated to the “Politics of the United States.”

Lehrer will discuss the new venture with Joe Mathieu, P.O.T.U.S.’ program director and host of the daily show The Press Pool. In the interview Lehrer  will offer thoughts on the state of the news industry, the crisis in Egypt and the 2012 presidential election—including, says a  release, why he’s not interested in moderating another presidential debate. Mathieu’s interview with Lehrer will air on The Press Pool on February 7 beginning at 12 p.m. ET.

Kennedy Coverage on Radio

SIRIUS XM: Joe Mathieu will anchor POTUS tonight and will be joined by Tim Farley tomorrow from 10:30amET to 1pmET. Live coverage will continue throughout the day and will include reporting on the 5:30pmET burial. There’s also a special tribute of audio clips to Senator Kennedy on the website.

Chrystia Freeland: The FishbowlDC Interview

CF 08 headshot.jpgSay hello to Chrystia Freeland, US Managing Editor of the Financial Times.

What word do you routinely misspell? A lot of them — to my regret, I’m a member of the spell-check generation.

What time did you get up this morning? 6 am.

When did you last cry and why? Chinese New Year — which we celebrated last year with my mother, who died over the summer.

How many emails do you receive a day, roughly? 200.

Then, in a Kafkaesque twist, management and journalists alike often whine about how their sites don’t make much money.”
