Bloomberg to Host First Debate – Charlie Rose Style

On Tuesday, October 11, Bloomberg and WaPo are hosting their first presidential debate of the 2012 campaign live at Dartmouth College. This is Bloomberg’s first presidential debate.

The focus: the economy. The format will be different than the others with candidates seated side-by-side at a round table facing the hosts and surrounded by audience members. Bloomberg organizers, in a release, say the format “will facilitate serious and substantive debate on issues of vital importance to the country.”

Debate moderators include Charlie Rose, WaPo political correspondent Karen Tumulty and Bloomberg TV White House correspondent Julianna Goldman. The background will not be silhouetted against a black background like a typical Rose program.

Participating candidates include Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, businessman Herman Cain, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, Texas Rep. Ron Paul, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum.

Details: The  8p.m. ET debate, which will be broadcast live on Bloomberg Television, Bloomberg Radio and WBIN-TV in New Hampshire, will be available to viewers across multiple digital platforms including livestream on Bloomberg.com, washingtonpost.com/debate and Bloomberg Mobile.

 

D. Shuster and Wife Split

WaPo‘s “Reliable Source” reports today that ex-MSNBCer David Shuster and his wife, Bloomberg News‘s Julianna Goldman, are officially separating. They’ve been married for three and a half years.

A number of D.C. (and beyond) journos have been hot on this story for weeks now. But to no avail — Shuster wouldn’t talk.  This photograph was taken from Shuster’s Facebook page on which there are still several pictures of he and Goldman.

Haddad Honored

Media maven Tammy Haddad was feted for her work with the Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy (CURE) last night. The event was hosted by Susan Axelrod and Connie Milstein at the Newseum where a slew of political and media leaders turned out to see Haddad receive the 2010 Friend of CURE award. Journos in attendance included NYT’s Ashley Parker, ABC’s Michael Falcone, NBC’s Andrea Mitchell, ABC’s Polson Kanneth, Politico’s Roger Simon, WaPo’s Manuel Roig-Franzia, WJLA’s Gordon Peterson, HuffPo’s Howard Fineman, Politico’s Jonathan Martin, CNN’s Jessica Yellin and Jill Chappell, WaPo’s Jonathan Capehart, Roll Call’s Jackie Kucinich, Bloomberg’s Julianna Goldman and Glamour’s Linda Kramer Jenning to name just a few. *Photos courtesy of WHC Insider / Neshan Naltchayan

President Obama Holds Oil Spill Press Conference

President Obama just wrapped up his first official press conference on the Gulf Coast oil spill. It lasted about an hour.

After about ten minutes of remarks, the President took questions. Up first was the AP’s Jennifer Loven who asked if the President has been personally involved enough. “This has been our highest priority,” Obama responded.

Brian Williams, Harry Smith and George Stephanopoulos anchored special coverage on NBC, CBS and ABC. Chuck Todd, Jake Tapper and Chip Reid all also reported from the WH East Room.

After Loven, Tapper, Todd, McClatchy’s Steve Thomma, Reid, Bloomberg’s Julianna Goldman, Helen Thomas, NYT‘s Jackie Calmes, EFE’s Macarena Vidal and Fox News’ Major Garrett got called on by the President for questions, in that order.

Thomas asked the first non-oil spill question, on Afghanistan. She asked Obama not to give her any “Bush-ist” too (not bullsh*t, calm down everyone). Calmes brought it back to oil spill. Garrett asked about the possible Sestak job offer from the administration- Obama promised an official response shortly, adding that nothing improper took place.

CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC also carried. WaPo‘s Chris Cillizza, who’s live-tweeting the press conference, tweeted “tough image for Obama…MSNBC goes with split screen: Obama on one side, oil pipe spewing into gulf on the other.”

White House deputy press secretary Bill Burton took on criticism that the President hasn’t had a press conference in a long time on Twitter today:

@billburton44: politico: photo w/ a caption saying potus hasn’t had a press conf in 10 mos – odd since it’s from his press conf 4 mos ago

@billburton44: Other recent press conf’s: 2/9 (in the WH briefing room – documented in the photo) & 4/13 (in DC at the Nuclear Summit)

And despite press corps complaints that Presidential press conferences have been lacking, Real Clear Politics’ Mike Memoli tweeted this pic, “Low turnout from press for this event. Dozens of empty seats.”

Journos Flock to The Week’s Opinion Awards

op- mikajoe.jpgop- ezra.jpg

The Week held their annual Opinion Awards last night at the W Hotel. This year’s event recognized WaPo wunderkind Ezra Klein, TNR’s Jonathan Chait and The Pittsburgh Post Gazette’s Rob Rogers.

White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel kicked off the night with a little humor, calling the award “the most significant thing to happen to Ezra [Klein] since his bar mitzvah last week.”

“Morning Joe” hosts and the evening’s emcees Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski showed their love with a shout out to MSNBC’s David Shuster who is currently suspended from his job for an indefinite amount of time. Shuster and wife, Bloomberg’s Julianna Goldman later dodged questions about the suspension from Examiner’s Tara Palmeri, claiming a stomach ache.

In addition to the emcees and honorees, journalists packed the house last night. FishbowlDC spotted NBC’s Savannah Guthrie and Andrea Mitchell, CNN’s Dana Bash, Ed Henry and Jessica Yellin, Politico’s Patrick Gavin, Mike Allen and Anne Schroeder Mullins, CBS’ Christine Delargy, Tammy Haddad, Bloomberg’s Margaret Carlson, WBJ’s Jen Nycz-Conner, Daily Caller’s Tucker Carlson, WaPo’s Amy Argetsinger and Jonathan Capehart, MSNBC’s Louis Burgdorf, Slate’s John Dickerson, Politics Daily’s Lynn Sweet, Yahoo’s Michael Calderone and Daily Beast’s Tina Brown and Ronnie Cho.

Also in attendance were Brad Dayspring, Hilary Rosen, Matt Cooper, Ben Bradlee, Sally Quinn, Juleanna Glover, as well as “Washington’s own George Clooney,” Kevin Madden (as described by several guests).

To wrap up the evening, The Week Editor-at-Large Sir Harold Evans moderated a panel debate between Senator Amy Klobuchar(D-MN) Governor Ed Rendell (D-PA), Rep.Eric Cantor (R-VA), and Republican strategist Steve Schmidt.

Morgan Freeman in DC for “Invictus” Screening


Mediocre blackberry pic of Matthews and Freeman by yours truly.

Renowned actor Morgan Freeman graced DC last evening for a screening of “Invictus,” which hits theaters December 11th. Directed by Clint Eastwood and starring Matt Damon, it’s the story of South African President Nelson Mandela’s campaign to host the 1995 Rugby World Cup event in his first term.

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews hosted a Q&A with Freeman at National Geographic after the screening, which received a standing ovation from a nearly full theater that included the likes of Fox News’ Chris Wallace, CNN’s David Bohrman, Kevin Madden and President Obama’s right-hand man Reggie Love.

“You can’t tell Mandela’s whole story in a movie,” Freeman said of the rugby storyline he convinced Eastwood to direct. Matthews first opened questions to South Africans in the audience– “you portray Mr. Mandela very well” and “the movie was emotional,” women at the screening said to Freeman.

The “Invictus” star admits he has yet to see the film, though he will when it premieres. “I’m terrified… I’d much rather believe you when you say it’s good,” he said.

As for who should play Obama in a movie, Freeman definitively says “Denzel,” as in actor Denzel Washington.

Also in attendance: USA Today‘s Susan Page, MSNBC’s David Shuster, Bloomberg’s Julianna Goldman, ABC’s Rick Klein and David Chalian, WaPo‘s Jonathan Capehart, CNN’s Gloria Borger, Paul Begala, Sam Feist and Peter Hamby, Politico‘s Mike Allen, Jonathan Martin, Ken Vogel and Kiki Ryan, CongressDaily‘s Erin McPike, Time‘s Jay Newton Small, Roll Call‘s Shira Toeplitz, CBS’ Laura Strickler, Matthew Cooper, Karen Finney, Lee Brenner, Mark Adelman, Mark Paustenbach, Taylor Griffin and Michael Feldman, among others.

Warner Bros. and Mandela Day hosted the screening.
