How Howard Fineman Spells Rhinoceros: ‘Rhinocerus’

It was at times an intense standoff last night as nine Washington journalists squared off against nine members of Congress in a Spelling Bee at the National Press Club.

Throughout the evening, Politico Deputy White House Editor Rebecca Sinderbrand (pictured here alongside Kaine) seemed to have the whole thing locked up. Calm and cool, unlike some of the other journalists, she stepped right up and spelled her words correctly, without a lot of hesitation.

That is, until the end, when, in a standoff with the unassuming Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.), she lost and he won on “nonpareil.” Read more

Atlantic’s Molly Ball Goes to This Town and Gets Ignored by WaPo’s Sally Quinn

When it came time to plan a party for the release of his new book, This Town, Mark Leibovich struggled with how to throw a party for a book about the senselessness of Washington parties without it being a huge display of irony.

So to make sure everything was kosher, as The Atlantic’s Molly Ball reports, Leibovich invited “everyone” and served hors d’oeuvres from a table in the back of an under-air-conditioned room. Ball writes a cleverly detailed first-person account of the party, including Washington figures she spotted there, conversations she had and a review of Carl Hulse’s maraca-playing skill (spoiler alert: it was “pretty awful”).

Ball noticed that “Bob (Barnett) or Mikey (Allen) or Tammy (Haddad)” were not present. This probably has something to do with the fact that Leibo paints an especially unflattering portrait them in the book, which was released last week.

Ball also recalls how her conversation with WaPo’s Karen Tumulty was hijacked by Tumulty’s colleague Sally Quinn. Ball writes that she tried to contribute to the conversation the two began to have about Anthony Weiner, “but Quinn does not turn toward me even once, and continues to converse with Tumulty as though I were not there.”

In response to this, many journalists took to Twitter to share their stories of also being ignored by Quinn.

Politico’s Ben White tweeted, “I’ve been #SallyQuinned this way too. So pathetic,” to which Ball replied, “That’s the difference between me & you. I found it totally amusing.”

Dylan Beyers, also of Politico, tweeted, “I recall giving her a very dirty look.”

NPR freelancer Lizzie O’Leary recalled her interaction (or lack of) with Quinn, as well.

“I, too, have been ignored by Sally Quinn. One of my prouder moments,” O’Leary tweeted.

Perhaps Ball summed it up best in a tweet to AP‘s Adam Goldman.

“I mean, she is Sally Fucking Quinn. She doesn’t need to pay attention to folks like me.”

WaPo Paywall Hits Stages of Grief

Earlier this month, following (as usual?) the NYTWaPo’s metered paywall went up. Now you get just 20 free articles before having to pay a minimum of $9.99 a month.

While this approach is working well for NYT and even now-independent blogger Andrew Sullivan, one does wonder what will happen when the entire media old guard is walled away. Will the average news consumer consider it something worth paying for, or will still free, less-established sources become the go-to and the vanguard?

Personally, WaPo’s paywall has not yet been much of a problem as we try to avoid the technological deathtrap any more than is necessary. But, it does seem seem some normal folks out there are starting to run up against it. We’re no psychologists, but we think we’re starting to see some of the stages of grief play out in social media.

Quotes of the Day

“I don’t know where zoftig ends and Dunkin Donuts begins.”HuffPost and MSNBC’s Howard Fineman on New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie weight loss in reaction to an intro from Touré who used the word “zoftig” to describe the governor even thought the word is supposed to apply to pleasantly plump women.
