Late Night Punchiness

jumping-fishAs the impending government shutdown lingered into the wee hours of the morning, bleary-eyed journalists on Twitter began to read things, er, [Sen. Maj. Leader Harry] Reid things, not as they were but as they couldn’t help but see them.

The conversation, which transpired at around 11 p.m. Monday night, is between freelance foreign correspondent Jonathan Krohn and HuffPost political reporter Sabrina Siddiqui.

Jonathan Lee Krohn: “@SabrinaSiddiqui I read Reid’s name spelled as ‘Read’ in your tweet. It did not read well.”

Sabrina Siddiqui: “@JonathanLKrohn I am too tired to type. :(

Jonathan Lee Krohn: “@SabrinaSiddiqui It’s okay. I can reid how tired you are.”

Ask Piranhamous Anything

Here is this week’s installment of “Ask Piranhamous Anything.”  If you have a question you’d like “snarked to death,” send it to FishbowlDC@mediabistro.com. This isn’t an advice column. Piranhamous doesn’t know what the hell you should do with your life any more than you do — and worse, he doesn’t care. Try to keep your questions short — we want to keep this fun, simple, funny and insightful.

Why should conservatives go to Erick Erickson’s Redstate event if he didn’t go to CPAC this year?

I notice Erick wasn’t at CPAC, but I have no idea why. What the two events offer are completely different. If both suit your needs, then yes. Attending a conference isn’t a favor, or at least shouldn’t be. If it is, no one should attend it.

Does Roger Ailes deserve to have two books written about him?

Yes. The guy started and runs the most successful news organization in the last half century – he deserves a mini-series. It’s funny to me to see leftists complain about him and pre-praise a book about him when his only “sin” is to swim upstream. There was a time when liberals were all in favor of “speaking truth to power” and being rebels (and not just in the Civil War), but now they hate, just absolutely HATE, anyone who dares to question their orthodoxy. So yes, Ailes deserves two books, three books or as many books as people can write. The more we learn about a man willing to give the institutional media power structure the finger the better.

Morning Chatter

Quotes of the Day

“But are you ready for this jelly?”-- CNN’s Jake Tapper, employing an unusual (for Washington) twist of phrase on his new show, “The Lead.” To which HuffPost Politics Editor Molly Reilly wrote simply, “Awful.” We disagree wholeheartedly. We’d like to hear Tapper employ the question daily, perhaps weekly so it doesn’t get stale.

Johnathan Krohn Under Fire!

“PSA: Just because you want to defend someone else’s view is no reason to attack my credibility or veracity as a journo. Calm the fuck down!” Salon‘s Jonathan Krohn, who was the recipient of verbal bullying at CPAC by two conservative females as reported (and recorded) by Yahoo! NewsChris Moody. One of the women, Townhall Editor Katie Pavlich, reacted to our writeup, saying, “Moral of this story? Jonathan Krohn got verbally beat up by two girls. Someone call the wammbulance.” (At right is Jonathan as a young sweater vested Republican. At left, a floppy-haired liberal.)

First World Problem

“So the puppy won’t stop jumping up on people. I know we need to ignore her, but it’s so hard because a) I love her, and…b) strangers love her too. Do I ask them to stop talking in high voices and greeting her when she jumps up?? Seems rude.” — Capitol Hill communicator, @therealmarta.

Uh oh. Is there a potential GIF for this?

“I’m home incredibly sick with a pounding head ache and the neighbors are blasting metal.” — BuzzFeed‘s Andrew Kaczynski.

Wemple is so sympathetic

“Tapper just pronounced ‘Reddit’ ‘Read-it’; corrected himself moments later. Lots of sympathy for that.” — WaPo‘s Erik Wemple. Oh, so he can see two sides to a story? Amazing how that works.

BuzzFeed seeks anti-hate employee (cat lover preferred)

“hahah Buzzfeed Job application says ‘No haters” should apply.’” — InTheseTimes Labor journo Mike Elk.

Um, who cares?

“Since its clear I’m not working at the moment a q: y do I like 90′s country music better than current stuff?#blameitallonmyroots.” — NBC “MTP” host David Gregory.

Yahoo! News Scribe Vindicates Self In Misquoting Charge

In a Monday story that’ll make you actually want to hit somebody, Yahoo! News‘s Chris Moody recounted an incident at CPAC wherein former child conservative star Jonathan Krohn, now 18, is borderline bullied by a gaggle of right-wing bloggers.

One of the bloggers challenged the report as inaccurate, but Moody, having recorded the whole thing, was able to prove his story is straighter than a game of beer pong in a frat house.

On the second day of CPAC Krohn, who was attending as a freelancer for Salon, was cornered in a hallway after attending a panel discussion on Islam. He was chatting with The Daily Caller‘s Jamie Weinstein when 10 or so other CPAC attendees and bloggers approached. Among them, Townhall‘s Editor Katie Pavlich (Mean Girl 1) and Misfit Politics Editor-In-Chief Leah Sargent (Mean Girl 2).

“It was pretty rude,” Krohn told FishbowlDC. “I don’t want to make all this a point of controversy, but I know all three of us that were surrounded (Weinstein, Moody and myself) felt the set-up was intimidating.”

Moody wouldn’t comment on the record for this post, but his story describes the scene like this… Read more
