Hot Dog 02Weiner returns in theater of the absurd

“”I have heard the ‘It’s not the crime it’s the cover-up’ take on this many times; perhaps that’s right,” former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY.) told the NYT by email for a story published Sunday on “Domesticated,” a new play at Lincoln Center about powerful couples and infidelity. “I clearly made it worse by not being truthful, and not a day goes by that I don’t regret being honest with my wife and others. But the way that the revelations were reported, sneered at and joked about makes it obvious that they would have garnered as much attention with or without my transparency.” (Interesting take. Yes, let’s just blame it all on reporters and their sinister pursuit to uncover the man in the bulging gray shorts.)

Righty Journo Says it Was ‘Honor’ to Meet Prez

20070831015132!Flying_Pig

Has the Earth stopped revolving? Do pigs now fly?

On Tuesday, National Review‘s Washington Editor Robert Costa expressed something that might result in him getting a lot of crap from his conservative cohorts.

We asked Costa about this remark and if he expected to receive flack about what he wrote. We also wondered if he hesitated writing it considering the backlash that was likely to ensue. He declined to comment.

The aftermath was nonetheless pretty interesting… Read more

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.

What You Should Think, Straight From The National Review

Race is in the news for so many reasons right now. Hello, Paula Deen! How are you? So the plan this week was to read what everyone was saying about it, mostly so you didn’t have to. We made the mistake, however, of starting with The National Review. Sorry, we had to cut ourselves off and didn’t get to anyone else. Here’s a sampling of what we found:

Math Problems

For a moment, Jonah Goldberg does a good job showing how collectively insane Republicans have become over immigration reform and how they’ve been trounced by Democrats because of it. Then, he started trying to attack the current proposal, with math no less. “Liberal wonks raced to defend the bill on the wage issue by noting that average wages wouldn’t necessarily go down for existing workers. (If ten people make $100 a day, and you add an eleventh who makes $50 a day, the average goes down even if everyone’s wages don’t.)” We missed the part in the immigration bill where employers are forced to pay immigrants 50 percent less than native born citizens. What happens if you pay 11 people equal wages for equal work? The same amount you were paying those previous 10? Numbers are not our strong suit, but we think that works out pretty well. What does it say about you, though, when you automatically assume adding an immigrant worker to the pool means they will—no must—earn less than all the white people around them?

Never let the fact that something is working well be an excuse to leave it alone…

Fallout: Bring Up Politics at Your Own Risk 

“I’m a douche low-life scumbag jackhole ghoul for noting Coburn already wants offsets to fed aid and Inhofe is climate change denier.” – Politico‘s Glenn Thrush, who got bombarded when he wrote this: “It’s striking that OK’s sens are 1) a federal spending skeptic and 2) global warming denier.” In response to the above, Kristina Ribali, director of new media at Freedom Works remarked: “@GlennThrush I didn’t say you were slamming them, I said you were being an ass. Have some class.” Labor reporter F. Bill McMorris wrote simply, “#douche.”

Did someone speak too soon? 

“Thank God tragedies like this one in OK bring out the highest and best in everyone – politicians, first responders, government, media.” — CNBC and NYT‘s John Harwood.

More media in-fighting…

The Nation‘s Katrina vanden Heuvel: “If GOP going to use IRS ‘scandal’ to demolish government,they may wish to look at need for very same government in Oklahoma tornado disaster.”

National Review Online‘s Jonah Goldberg: “.@KatrinaNation what’s really in poor taste how your point is so pedestrian and lame. Why bother? Jeez.”

The Day After: “It is always the next day when the sun comes up that we learn the extent of the horror.” — Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren.

And a few confessionals…

“Sometimes the disaster voyeurism on Twitter makes me uncomfortable.” — Blake Hounshel, managing editor of Foreign Policy mag.

“I lost some family that meant a lot to me in the AL tornadoes. Think I’ll clock out of coverage for the evening and pick it up in the AM.” — FBDC Contributor and Bill Press‘ producer Peter Ogburn.

Uh oh.

“CIA source says Fox News scandal the ’4th Shoe’; says it goes much deeper; says WH also sitting on “something” that has top aides terrified.” — Drudge Report and TWT Columnist Joseph Curl.

GOP Spox Prediction: 60 Minutes to land first Obama interview

“White House/Obama scandal tsunami is growing. Odds that the White House offers Steve Kroft the first POTUS interview?” — NRSC Strategist/Spokesman Brad Dayspring in an unfortunate display of using a weather analogy on the wrong day.

Rubin Vs. Shuster

“Watching lefty media meltdown re Obama media spying is like a kid finding out Babe Ruth was a drunk. Sorry to disillusion but long overdue.” — WaPo‘s
“Right Turn” blogger Jennifer Rubin.

Shuster guts Rubin like a fish“When it comes to RWNJ’s, including @JRubinBlogger, who are mentally ill + psychotic, best to ignore them.” — Lefty radio host David Shuster. “[Jennifer Rubin] proves again she is a habitual liar. And, asking @CNN to cut the mic of somebody responding to her lies? Psychotic.”

Bureau Chief takes firm stance on exposed pits

“Phew, getting people blind drunk in bars in order to get them to tell you things isn’t in DOJ’s list of treasonous acts that reporters do.” — BuzzFeed Washington Bureau Chief John Stanton. And this from a few days ago, but we couldn’t resist it: “I’m a firm believer that sleeves are mandatory for dudes in a restaurant situation. Nobody wants your pits exposed near their food.”

Watch out, ladies, your purses are germier than you think

“Not the dinner hour yet so if you carry a purse tune in at 4. Report shows more germs on your purse than a toilet. News4 @nbcwashington.” — Jim Handly, anchor, NBC Washington.
