CBS’ Dozier to AP

Sean McManus announced in an email this morning that Kimberly Dozier, the CBS reporter who survived an Iraqi bombing will be joining the Associated Press. Memo from McManus below:

It is my bittersweet task to inform you that Kimberly Dozier will be moving on to a new and exciting opportunity with the Associate Press.

Kimberly’s commitment and courage is legendary throughout the industry. Her reporting, both before and after her almost fatal injuries from an Iraqi bomb attack and a painful, arduous recovery, is a testament to the true power and purpose of the press.

I want to thank Kimberly for her extraordinary dedication and acknowledge both her excellence and fearlessness as a journalist and her many personal contributions over the years to CBS News.

Kimberly will be missed by all of us who worked directly with her and by many others she inspired. Please join me in thanking Kimberly for her work at CBS News and in wishing her well in the future as she embarks on this new adventure.

We Laughed With Some, Laughed At Others


Mother Jones Washington Bureau Chief David Corn was the first brave soul to take the stage.

Friday at the National Press Club, a dozen of brave DC journos took to the stage for Commedia Dell Media presented by Reporters Without Borders.

The line-up: NPR’s Jamila Bey, Conde Nast’s Matt Cooper, Mother Jones’ Washington Bureau Chief David Corn, Delphine Schrank, Shaun Waterman, McClatchy’s chief Pentagon correspondent Nancy Youssef, Bloomberg’s Scott Lanman, US News & World Report’s Pentagon correspondent Anna Mulrine, WUSA’s Mike Walter and Alex and Mark Hosenball.

We also spotted Lynn Sweet, Kimberly Dozier, Liz Glover and Mary Ann Akers at the Press Club.

Not funny was the line for the bar before the show started, but we did catch a few one-liners there. “No rehearsal- I came from a dinner party and had a few glasses of wine,” a certain female performer said. We also overheard friends of another female performer- “She’s so nervous, she said she was going to take a few xanax.”

We’ll let these (paraphrased) excerpts stand alone…

“The amount of good reporting you can do as a pantless woman in the Middle East is limited.” -Mulrine

“On the base, you can’t wear a towel on your head coming out of the shower area. I asked why- too provacative. What kind of porn are you guys watching?” -Mulrine

“In the Arabic world, journalist is one step up from prostitute.” -Youssef

“I’m not used to performing in front of such an old crowd. If anyone tells me I killed tonight, I’ll be like oh shit.” -Lanman

“Food is so expensive models can no longer afford bulimia… the economy is so bad, I was watching tv late last night and there was a commercial ‘got a white baby, sell it for cash.’” -Bey

“Rahm Emanuel opened a Twitter account. Turns out he doesn’t need 140 characters, just four.” -Corn

The consensus we’re hearing is that Cooper killed it, Corn was a little weak (sorry man), and a chick reporter embedded with any military group makes for plenty of good standup material (or dinner conversation– Mulrine: “when I was on an airsalt with the 101st Airbourne Division in Afghanistan… I like to start with that line as often as possible.”)

Ticket sales benefitted Reporters Without Borders for Press Freedom and judging by the seemingly sold-out crowd, we hope to hear they did pretty well.

Dozier Dishes in “Q&A Cafe”

CBS’ Kimberly Dozier was Carol Joynt‘s latest guest for “The Q&A Cafe” at Nathans in Georgetown. The show airs tonight at 8pm on DC Cable-TV 16. They discussed her book “Breathing the Fire” and her near-death experience covering the war in Iraq.

We chatted with Kimberly- “After making you comfortable on a barstool at Nathans, Carol asks VERY direct, take-no-prisoners questions, like why isn’t there more news coverage of Iraq and Afghanistan, and how big is the network bureau presence in Iraq and Afghanistan.” She was also quite taken by the dessert- Georgetown cupcakes.
