FBDC Interview: ABC7′s Kris Van Cleave

We know what you’re thinking about this photo…”there’s nothing more adorable than a puppy and pepaw.”  But don’t get it twisted.  That’s not just any grandpappy — it’s ABC7′s Kris Van Cleave who just so happens to be celebrating his 34th birthday today.  For those of you who don’t know Kris from his on-air antics (chasing crooked carpet cleaners down the street: here or getting real with some ascot awesomeness), this interview is for you. So say “hello” and “happy birthday” to Kris.

If you were a carbonated beverage which would you be?  Ginger ale — classic, great as a mixer, and just a tad spicy.

Who is your favorite working journalist and why? Martha Raddatz because she’s a fearless reporter and wonderful person.

Do you have a favorite word? Truculent

What word or phrase do you overuse? “Now” and “alright” 

Marimba.

What’s the name of your cell phone ring?  On my iPhone it’s the default “Marimba” and on my work phone is “Droid Invasion.”

What word do you routinely misspell? Most of tehm.

What swear word do you use most often? All of my conversations are polite, respectful, and G-rated…but I hear journalists like one that sounds a bit like “duck.”

If you weren’t a journalist what would you be? Hmm…I’d maybe work for an airline.  When I was a kid I always wanted to be a cop or a reporter (especially after it was painfully clear I couldn’t hit a curveball).

You’ve just been told the big news: You get to have your own Sunday morning talk show. Who will be on your roundtable?  I think I’d attempt to mix the panel with pundits and journalists. Jeff Zeleny, Andrea Mitchell, Bill Press and Sean Hannity. But I’d add a touch of American Gladiators to my show.  I’d equip the pundits– Bill Press and Sean Hannity–with blue and red (respectively) pugil sticks…or maybe nunchucks…who doesn’t like nunchucks?

When you pig out what do you eat?  Pizza. (Editor’s note: he’s also been known to eat numerous grilled cheese sandwiches in a single sitting…truth.)

If you could influence journalism in one way right now what would it be? No more Lindsay Lohan coverage.

When did you last cry and why? I lack tear ducts.

What TV show is your guilty pleasure? Really any bad cop show. In fact the badder the better.

Tell us a secret not many people know about you. #NerdAlert I have about 2 dozen airplane models on my desk. In a related note, people look at you funny when you fly them through the newsroom. Maybe it’s the woosh noise I was making?

Quotes of the Day

“Hmm which to choose?” — ABC’s Martha Raddatz with accompanying photograph.

Reader explains “tricks” scribes use to avoid crediting others

On Friday, WaPo‘s Paul Farhi wrote a story on Politico pulling a video that featured Sen. Min. Leader Mitch McConnell‘s (R-Ky.) COS blowing them love kisses. Turns out may that be against Senate rules, as reported by Roll Call‘s Meredith Shiner. So we wrote about Farhi’s failure to adequately cite Shiner and her story.

An Anonymous reader writes in…“Farhi’s failure to credit Roll Call: He use two of the oldest tricks in the book for skating past the explicit crediting of others: Don’t mention at top, but then mention the name of the news breaking organization without crediting them but attributing some small detail to their reporting. Fig leaf covered! The second dodge is when one your “friends” (your editor) tells you, “Farhi, you got beat on something!) Like the immaculate conception, if you hear it from someone else, then it is no longer breaking news!”

Important Question to Ponder: “Does Gray’s Anatomy have to be so bloody?” — FNC’s Greta Van Susteren.

The Observer

“Well, that was a new one: person in our row at Star Trek got up periodically throughout movie to do lunges in aisle.” — Anna Sproul-Latimer, literary agent.

S.E. Cupp finds perfect hamburger

“Found out the @innoutburger by LAX opens at 10:30 am. Plenty of time to grab a double-double animal style before my flight. #Worththetrip” — MSNBC’s S.E. Cupp.

Journo blows off steam

“Getting some aggression out at the driving range….” — Fox News Senate Producer Kara Rowland.

And another tries to recreate his heart attack

“Where is my ambulance? I think this is the widow maker – jk” — Mediaite White House Correspondent Tommy Christopher.

Producer looks to Trumps for finer things in life

“Got fabulous @IvankaTrump shoes this wk & delicious wine from @trumpwinery last wk. They sure make some good stuff. @realDonaldTrump” — WMAL Executive Producer Heather Smith.

Guiding Sophia’s Light

“New Golden Rule 21st Century style: I will do To you before you can do it to me! I will burn you before you can break me. I ain’t no punk.” — Essence and theGrio‘s Sophia Nelson.

The joke is in reference to Sec. of State Hillary Clinton‘s remarks before Congress last week in which she said appearing on Sunday talk shows is not her preferred way of spending her Sunday mornings.

Reporter robbed of copy of Advise and Consent

“To whoever stole the $3 copy of Allen Drury’s Pulitzer-winning but out-of-print Advise and Consent off my doorstep: I hope you enjoy it.” — Kasie Hunt, political reporter, NBC News. Hunt told FishbowlDC the book was in a box from Amazon. So far, no leads.
