Lucky Michael Douglas Bypasses Catherine Zeta Jones Q’s at U.S. Peace Institute

2013Planeteers

On Monday night the U.S. Institute of Peace in Washington hosted the Ploughshares Fund Gala. Ploughshares Fund is a bi-partisan group aiming to put an end to the remnants of the nuclear proliferation age, and finally making the world a nuclear-free place for future generations. The gala featured prominent figures, such as Sec. of State John F. Kerry, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, former Sen. Richard Lugar, among other V.I.P.’s.

Notables:

Margaret Carlson, Bloomberg, Steve ClemonsThe Atlantic, Sally Quinn, Washington Post, Ben Ambruster, Think Progress/Center for American Progress, Ali Gharib, Open Zion/Daily Beast, Matt Duss, Think Progress/Center for American Progress, former Undersecretary of State Paula Dobriansky (she worked for George W. Bush), Tom Toles, WaPo (Cartoonist; and wife Gretchen Toles), Sam Feist, CNN, Andrew Morse, CNN, Moira Whelan, State Department, Sen. Ed Markey, Olga KhazanThe Atlantic, Josh Rogin, Daily Beast, Uri Friedman (moving this week from Foreign Policy to The Atlantic), Jean Francois-Boittin, Embassy of France, Anne Gearan, WaPo, Richard Wilhelm, Booz Allen, Jay Newton-Small, Time Magazine, Bruce Gottlieb, National Journal, Michael Powell, American Federation of Teachers, Dixon Osburn, Human Rights First, Jeremy Ben-Ami, J Street, and Warren Bass, Wall Street Journal.

The Master of Ceremonies for the night was Emmy and Academy award winning actor Michael Douglas, who’s passion for complete global nuclear disarmament has put him in the same league as some of the most powerful people in the world who are not actor (beat that, Clooney).

Whose speech outshined the rest at this anti-nuke open-bar gala soiree?

Something heartening…

“Awaiting my oldest friend — we were 3 when we met — as he makes DC stop on his 1st family trip to the US. #psyched” — Yahoo! News‘ D.C. Bureau Chief Olivier Knox.

Important Q to Ponder: “Skakel was an adult in charge of his own defense. Why would he deserve a new trial based on ineffectiveness of his own lawyer?” — Commentary‘s John Podhoretz.

Uh oh.

“4:42am and it’s already ‘one of those days.’” — ABC7′s Sara Van Aernum.

images-3SHOTS FIRED!

“Yo, @CarlosLozadaWP read your paper’s Jofi Joseph tick-tock today. Search the words ‘Daily Beast’ or ‘Rogin.’ Speak truth to power!” — Politico‘s Glenn Thrush to WaPo Outlook Editor Carlos Lozada. This was in response to Lozada’s recent assertion that Thrush had failed to give Daily Beast‘s Josh Rogin his deserved credit for breaking the anonymous NSC tweeter  story. Lozada didn’t respond to Thrush’s Twitter water balloon, but he did what any self-respecting journalist would do — he retweeted it. For a backgrounder, see our writeup on this situation.

Journo has stress dream

“Woke up from 5 am stress dream that I was going on @FBNStossel unprepared to precisely explain Medicare funding mechanisms.” – Reason Editor-in-Chief Matt Welch.

Politico’s Glenn Thrush Skips Credit for Daily Beast’s Josh Rogin

images-4One thing that can be determined from the behavior of Politico in the last 24 hours is that they psychologically can’t handle coming in second place.

Even if that’s what they are in this instance  — second.

We’re referring to Josh Rogin‘s Daily Beast story on Jofi Joseph, the anonymous NSC tweeter, which he broke Tuesday night at 8:27 p.m.  Rogin got the Drudge link and appeared on morning shows such as NBC’s “TODAY Show” and ABC’s “GMA.”  Every outlet from NPR to WaPo and the NYT credited him.

Take a wild guess who didn’t.

UPDATE: Politico reporter responds.

Afternoon Reading List 09.26.13

Ezra Klein should quit: The Daily Caller’s  Matt Lewis doesn’t think it’s all that bad of an idea. According to a story he posted this week, the changes in the media have allowed for a ton of writers, such as WaPo‘s Ezra Klein, to build a brand and then expound upon that brand by taking themselves away from the older media outlets as those fade into obscurity. Lewis’ writes that Ben Domenech, publisher of The Federalist and editor of the email newsletter Transom, believes writers are empowered to bypass traditional media outlets in favor of more entrepreneurial pursuits, and encourages them to do so.

Why you should read it: This is the sort of story that makes you scratch your head and wonder if Lewis is talking to you. The only way to tell is to read the story and see for yourself (especially if your name is Ezra Klein).

Newsweek Daily Beast reporter got punched in face at comedy show: According to Zachary Stieber of Epoch Times, last night Josh Rogin, senior correspondent for Newsweek Daily Beast, got socked in the face a few times by headlining comedian Dan Nainan for allegedly livetweeting the show during his set. Nainan got flustered by this, and before you could say “Dan Nainan is a hack comic with serious punchlines,” Rogin got a knuckle-sandwich. Nainan was arrested for his antics but tweeted at 1:07 a.m. that he “had a blast headlining the DC Improv!” with no mention of the rest of what happened.

Why you should read it: In order to better understand the generally accepted social norms of varying situations (without getting your face punched), go ahead and read this story and see what happens when you do normal journo things outside of a normal journo atmosphere (like live tweeting a comedy show, which is a HUGE no-no).

Reporter Punched in Face for Tweets

nainanUnknownThis might be the most spectacular thing to happen to Washington journalism in modern times.

On Wednesday night Daily Beast foreign policy reporter Josh Rogin (above left) was socked in the face for trash tweeting comedian Dan Nainan at the D.C. Improv. The comedian (above right) was arrested in the incident.

The event was the semi-annual “Funniest Celebrity in Washington” contest. Not so funny, right? (Well, actually, it’s still a little funny.)

WaPo reported the news at 12:17 a.m. Thursday morning. U.S. News & World Report beat them to the punch [insert laughter track here] by at least an hour.

Will this stop the relatively mild-mannered Rogin from writing what he pleases in the future?

FP’s Managing Editor Flew the Coop

Indeed, lots of changes at Foreign Policy Magazine as of late. Another one we just learned of is Managing Editor Blake Hounshell, who announced Friday that he was leaving. This comes on the heels of Susan Glasser‘s departure as Editor-in-Chief, as well as the losses of Josh Rogin to The Daily Beast and Kevin Baron to Atlantic‘s Defense One. Word on the street is Hounshell’s resignation involved Glasser’s leaving and subsequent move to Politico. We’re told it was his choice to leave.

As we announced earlier today, Foreign Policy held a meeting this morning to announce a bunch of new hires and promotions, including Wired‘s Noah Shachtman as Executive Editor of News.

Hounshell’s Twitter bio no longer includes any mention of Foreign Policy. “I decide to leave FP after six and a half wonderful years working with amazing colleagues and contributors,” he told FishbowlDC. “Very excited for my new projects. Stay tuned.”

FP Takes Swipe at Just-Departed Josh Rogin

The claws are out.

In a display of what smells like grudge-holding for leaving the publication, Foreign Policy is taking a swing at Josh Rogin, who left just weeks ago for The Daily Beast. They don’t name him in the story, but they rip at a piece he wrote like it’s a mouse they’ve been tracking all day long.

As we’ve reported, Kevin Baron, a top reporter for FP just left for Atlantic‘s Defense One. And earlier this week FP lost its Editor-in-Chief Susan Glasser, who formally announced that she, too, was leaving. She fled to Politico.  The publication expects to name a new editor soon.

In the meantime, it’s Operation Attack Josh Rogin Full Speed Ahead.

Written by FP‘s Micah Zenko, here’s a taste of it. Read more
