If you didn’t make it up to the rooftop of 101 Constitution Ave for Yahoo! News’ swanky soiree on Wednesday night, here’s a quick recap of what you missed:  Thrown by event extraordinaire Philip Dufour, the party was held in large part to welcome new DC bureau chief David Chalian.  In addition, the newsgroup used the opportunity to kick off their 2012 campaign coverage plans and to raise a glass to their partnership with ABC News.

Ross Levinsohn, Yahoo! EVP of the Americas  (and American University alum),  spoke about Yahoo! News’ expanding editorial coverage and presence in Washington to a crowd that included many familiar faces from ABC’s DC bureau:  Ann Compton, Jonathan Karl, Rick Klein, Polson Kanneth, Richard Kaplan, Amy Walter and Robin Sproul.  Also in attendance were WaPo‘s Dana Milbank, Neil Patel of the Daily Caller, NJ’s Chris Frates, Jane Mayer from the New Yorker, CNN’s Dan Lothian and Alex Mooney, Politico’s Marty Kady and Keach Hagey, Judy Kurtz of The Hill, NBC’s Adam Verdugo, MSNBC’s Karen Finney, CQ Roll Call’s Mark Walters and FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski.

Around the Blogs…

TVNewser: The NBC Experience store in Manhattan is selling Obama tee-shirts and action figures, and causing somewhat of a stir.

WebNewser: The Federal Communications Commission has launched a blog, Blogband to spread the word about the National Broadband Plan, and also started a Twitter account. FCC chairman Julius Genachowski‘s initial post explains more.

• And more from WebNewser: A lack of advertiser support and a shortage of resources spelled doom for LoudounExtra.com, a hyperlocal site covering news in Loudoun County, VA for WaPo. The paper also said it would not proceed with other planned hyperlocal sites.

Taking Out The Trash


What we almost missed today…

• Check out President Obama’s fly-swatting skills in an interview above with CNBC’s John Harwood.

• Gawker takes a look at the Twitter habits of the White House press corps here.

• WebNewser points out the Secret Service has denied msnbc.com’s request for the names of all White House visitors from Jan. 20 to now. It also denied a narrower request by the nonpartisan watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, which sought logs of visits by executives of coal companies.

Julius Genachowski, President Obama’s nominee for chairman of the FCC, said today he does not support reinstating the fairness doctrine, as reported by Broadcasting and Cable.
