CQ Weekly: The Cover

In this week’s CQ Weekly cover story, “So Much for Super,” reporter Joseph Schatz explains what happens after the collapse of the Supercommittee and suggests the bad blood between the parties could make for even more infighting in Congress. Also: CQ‘s Keith Perine reports on the Supreme Court considering if fining for foul language makes sense in the age of cable and the internet. Look for the full story later this week online.

An excerpt: So the deficit committee may be out of business. But its conflicts will live on, possibly more inflamed than before, reinforcing the public perception that Congress is hopelessly dysfunctional. “That will define this next year, I believe, in this country,” Sen. John Kerry, a Massachusetts Democrat and panel member, said after he led last-minute discussions aimed at reaching a deal on taxes. “This fight just begins, because now, we’re going to hold people accountable.” …“The failure of the supercommittee means it is time for the real committee — Congress — to act. Congress cannot delegate hard decisions any longer,” added Republican Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, a deficit hawk who was not part of the talks.

CQ’s Schatz Wins Sandy Hume Award

CQ-Roll Call‘s Joseph Schatz has won the 2010 National Press Club’s Sandy Hume Memorial Award for Excellence in Political Journalism. Schatz is the fifth CQ-Roll Call reporter to win the award since it began in 1999.

Schatz’s June 2009 CQ Weekly cover story “China Duet With the Dragon” earned him the award.

This win marks the third year in a row that CQ has won the Hume award. Staff writer Tim Starks won in 2009; former staff writer Jonathan Allen (now with Politico) won in 2008.

The award is named in memory of Sandy Hume, the reporter for The Hill who broke the story of the aborted 1997 coup against House Speaker Newt Gingrich. It honors excellence and objectivity in political coverage by a reporter 34 years old or younger for either a single story of great distinction or for continuing coverage of one political topic.
