Things that make you go huh?

“the H is O” — CNN’s Jake Tapper. To which a follower wondered, “The W the F does that mean?” TPM”s Igor Bobic got in on it, saying, “V to the izz-A.” Which caused Politico‘s Juana Summers to remark, “Thank you for going there.”

Washingtonians cranky?

“I think everyone in Washington needs a nap. #crankypeople.” — NPR health reporter Julie Rovner.

imagesWarning: Journo with a migraine

“This might be the worst migraine I’ve had in 3 years. #BackToBed” — WMAL and Brietbart‘s Larry O’Connor.

Incredible feats: A 93-year-old can Skype?

“My grandfather turned 93 today. He just sent me his first ever Skype message. Complete text: ‘How’” — Mother Jones‘ Managing Editor Clint Hendler.

Your day could be far worse

“Family: Man who set self on fire at the National Mall was mentally ill.” — WUSA9.

Unknown-2SHAME ON THE WHITE HOUSE MEDIA!

“Questions from WH press corps are pathetic. As of this moment, not a single tough or challenging inquiry.” — FNC’s Brit Hume. Colleague Bret Baier concurred, saying, “Agreed–Nothing at all.” Where’s Ed Henry at a time like this? Ed’s comments, at least on Twitter, after the presser: “Admin official says while President is open to a deficit panel, veto threat came b/c GOP version would only touch spending & not revenue. After President said at newser he’d accept a process like creating a new deficit panel to give GOP cover, WH issues veto threat on … panel.” And then he shot a beautiful picture of Washington. In fairness to Henry, Obama never called on him at the press conference. See his beautiful sky shot after the jump…

Reporter can’t help but wonder…

“I wonder if Capitol Police officers secretly enjoyed arrested the guys partially responsible for them not getting paid right now.” — National Journal reporter Alex Seitz-Wald.

Sam Youngman’s Goodbye Soirée is ‘The Other Side of This Town’

photo-25A sizable gathering of journos packed into the dimly-lit Oyster Bar of Old Ebbitt Grill last night to bid farewell to Sam Youngman, who’s headed to Lexington, Ky. to shake things up at the Kentucky-Herald Leader.

“It’s so easy to sh-t all over this town, and I will continue to do so with great relish,” Youngman told FishbowlDC by email today. “But last night was a reminder that there are so many wonderful and talented people here, and I’m fortunate to know them.”

Kevin Madden, a CNN Contributor, pointed out last night, “This is the other side of This Town.” You hear that Mark Leibovich?

The party was meticulously organized by CBS Chief White House Correspondent Major Garrett, who regularly frequents Old Ebbitt and is something of a star there. (We resisted the terrible urge to give Garrett an impromptu spelling test. He assures that he can spell fairly well, just not in a Spelling Bee format.)

Media Takes Sides on Zimmerman Decision

After continual media coverage of the George Zimmerman trial in the shooting of Trayvon Martin and more than 16 hours of deliberation by the jury, Zimmerman was acquitted of charges of second-degree murder and manslaughter over the weekend.

Since the shooting occurred last year, the case has been heavily followed by the media, with some outlets taking clear, strong stances. Now that the not-guilty verdict has been announced, some publications are being even more outspoken on the matter. We looked at a wide array of news organizations to analyze each publication’s own verdict of the case.

Fox News weather lady lets herself eat pie and whatever else she wants

“If it’s your birthday, nothing you eat should have calories. A rule made up by me just now…after eating too much pie.” — Janice Dean, senior meteorologist for Fox News. (Guess all those rotten rumors about FNC controlling what females wear on air and how they look are completely unfounded.)

Question to never ponder: “Does anyone actually like spearmint or do we all just tolerate it?” — Mediaite editor Noah Rothman.

And something to contemplate deeply: “Is Potsie from Happy Days on Twitter? Be cool if he would follow me.” — Breitbart NewsJohn Nolte.

 

Reporter wants to be on Homeland

“I want to be on Homeland. Sorry I’m not sorry.” — Politico‘s Juana Summers, who links to this casting call for extras for guess which show?

Journo wants free booze

Stress on the job

“This no coffee combined with my round the clock day has me this close to clawing the drywall.” — Javonni Brustow, Washington editor of TheDCPundit.

He said what?  

“Whoa whoa whoa. We’re not done yet Brian. While we’re talking, I got a few Q’s for you.” — Breitbart’s Matthew Boyle to former NRSC spokesman Brian Walsh, who now has his own consulting firm. In the course of a lengthy late-night argument involving the Tea Party, Walsh asked Boyle, “Honestly just asking aloud if you’re playing reporter or pundit on this one my friend? The line is very blurry.” Boyle replied, “You’re really going to ask me that? Hmmm. It’s pretty obviously reporter.”

AnonymASS Tipsters of the Week: “Gee, you got to say “poop” again in your latest post. Someone ought to do a monthly count on your fascination with a word most stopped giggling about at 12.” And this: “Crappy Poop Stories Return to Fishbowl” And this: “Also at Allbritton brunch: Laura McGann, Anna Palmer, Jen Epstein, Rachel Smolkin.
