Um, Are Journalists a ‘Constituency’?

The Weekly Standard‘s Senior Writer Stephen Hayes quotes NBC’s Lisa Myers in a shady turn of phrase.

Now 167 retweets later, clearly the comment struck a nerve. Politico White House Correspondent Glenn Thrush asks, “What does that even mean?” QGA Communications Exec. and columnist John Feehery replied, “You know what it mean, don’t play dumb with me.” IslandSnoopy also seemed to get the inherent problem here, writing, “Therein lies the problem. The Press should be objective. NOT ‘one of the president’s most important constituencies.’”

Extreme Makeover: NBC Washington HQ Edition

Someone call Ty Pennington because it sounds like NBC’s Washington HQ could use an extreme makeover.

Unfortunately, a little TLC isn’t going to cut it this time. The NY Observer reports that on Sunday evening, NBC management alerted staff that asbestos was found on the first floor of their Nebraska Ave HQ. Allegedly, the contaminated area was home to Chuck Todd, Lisa Myers and the central interview room.

Felix Gillette‘s got the full scoop and the NBC memo. Check it out here.

Radio / TV Correspondents’ Dinner: The Photos

Swinging times were had at last night’s 63rd Annual Radio & Television Correspondents’ Association Dinner at the Washington Hilton. The 2,000+ audience dined on New Orleans Cajun Salad, Texas Rubbed Tenderloin of Beef and Mississippi Mud Pile, while washing it down with Stone Cellars Chardonnay and Stone Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon.

The evening’s entertainment is already taking the Internet by storm (and only Karl Rove could overshadow Brian Williams’ impressive sound effects). Ricky Skaggs cancelled at the last minute because he was sick.

NBC’s Lisa Myers took home the Joan Barone Award for her investigative work and Steve Centanni and Olaf Wiig won the David Bloom Award (which was presented by last year’s winner, Bob Woodruff, and David Bloom’s three daughters).
